Key business information and insights live in collaboration
Identify threats, improve decision-making, and even boost employee morale when you understand what lives within your data.
Stay on top of potential risks.
As collaboration increases, so does risk—exposing you to regulatory fines, reputation damage, and loss of valuable intellectual property.
- Nearly 50% of all data breaches were caused by stolen credentials. Identify patterns of unauthorized credential sharing to maintain a secure environment.
- 1:166 messages contain “Corporate Sensitive Data”—data that, if leaked, could negatively impact your bottom line.
- Screenshots make up the bulk of images shared and are statistically more likely to include sensitive information, such as PII, proprietary code, and corporate financials.
A direct line from the break room to the board room.
Conversation data holds key insights into the voice of your employees. It’s important to listen—employees who feel heard are 4.6x more likely to feel empowered to do their best work.
- Sentiment indicates whether the emotion behind communication is positive or negative. Companies with happy employees outperform the competition by 20%.
- Toxic speech determines if conversation is healthy, inappropriate, or toxic. Toxicity leads to lower morale, higher turnover, and lower productivity.
- Negative sentiment is part of healthy organizations—but when conversations turn toxic, your culture is compromised. Aware provides the context necessary to understand the meaning and intent behind these conversations, so you can stay ahead of potential problems.

Know where messages are sent—and what’s attached
Identify potential blind spots, understand when messages are modified, and learn how employees prefer to communicate.
Edits / Deletes
Aware research shows that just 3% of all messages contain images—but that files and images pose a greater security risk than text alone.
Visibility into edited or deleted messages is vital to understanding risks and maintaining compliance.
Understanding where employees communicate will help identify your blind spots, particularly in private groups or direct messages.
Direct messages often contain valuable IP and confidential credentials—and they are 160% more likely to be toxic than messages in public channels.
