In today's world, where networks generate an overwhelming amount of data, security analysts often find themselves struggling to separate the real threats from the noise. Their days are spent in a constant reactive mode, leaving little room for proactive measures due to limited time and resources. In this blog post, we'll delve into how GreyNoise empowers security analysts and transforms their daily work by cutting through the noise and providing invaluable insights.

So, what exactly is GreyNoise?

GreyNoise is a powerful threat intelligence platform designed to assist security analysts in identifying noise and minimizing false positives. By meticulously collecting and analyzing internet-wide scan and attack data, GreyNoise equips security teams with contextual information about the threats they encounter. With its ability to filter out noise and shed light on the sources of attacks, GreyNoise empowers security analysts to focus their efforts on genuine threats.

How we can help

1. Maximizing SOC Efficiency: Banishing False Positives

Security Operation Centers (SOCs) are often inundated with an overwhelming barrage of security alerts. However, it's disheartening to discover that a significant portion of these alerts, often exceeding 50%, are nothing more than false positives or irrelevant internet noise. One exasperated GreyNoise customer even lamented, "Stop chasing ghosts!" (this is why you will see our little “ghostie” icon many places on our website and in our product) GreyNoise comes to the rescue by enabling SOC teams to filter out known benign and noisy alerts originating from SIEM and SOAR systems. This empowers analysts to laser-focus on targeted and malicious activities that truly demand attention. Learn More >>

2. Enhancing Threat Intelligence: The Power of Context

GreyNoise takes threat intelligence to new heights by providing security analysts with valuable context surrounding the sources of attacks. Through thorough analysis of internet-wide scan and attack data, GreyNoise identifies patterns and offers insights into the tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) employed by attackers. Armed with this knowledge, security analysts gain a deeper understanding of the threats they face, enabling them to devise more effective strategies to mitigate risks and safeguard their organizations.

3. Defending Against Mass exploitation Attacks: Staying One Step Ahead

GreyNoise provides an early warning system for vulnerabilities being actively exploited in the wild, plus dynamic IP blocklists that security teams can use during their window of exposure. Now you can swiftly identify trending internet attacks focused on specific vulnerabilities and CVEs, efficiently triage alerts based on malicious, benign, or targeted IP classifications, and take proactive measures to block and hunt down IP addresses opportunistically exploiting a particular vulnerability. By leveraging these comprehensive features, security teams gain an edge in staying ahead of threats and bolstering their defenses against mass exploitation attacks. Learn More >>


Security analysts grapple with numerous challenges in their day-to-day work, including the overwhelming volume of network data and the complexity of evolving threats. However, GreyNoise emerges as a formidable ally, providing context about attack sources, reducing false positives, and bolstering incident response capabilities. By harnessing the power of GreyNoise, security analysts can direct their attention to genuine threats and ensure their organizations remain resilient against cyber threats.
