The new service also allows users to access to NDR platform to proactively discover, detect, and respond to threats targeting digital assets within the organization. Awake Security Platform not only separates the known good but also identifies any malicious intent lurking in between.

The solution also includes an incident response retainer in case a breach is uncovered. Rahul Kashyap, Vice President and General Manager, Arista NDR Security Division, said,
