GreyNoise Named Most Innovative Security Solution of 2021 by the Tech Ascension Awards

GreyNoise Intelligence, the anti threat intelligence company, announces its selection today as the Most Innovative Security Solution of 2021 by the Tech Ascension Awards.

“We are honored by all of this validation, as it shows that we are making progress toward our ultimate mission—to solve the problem of alert fatigue and information overload in the cybersecurity arena,” said Andrew Morris, Founder and CEO, GreyNoise Intelligence. “Every day, we see a staggering number of internet scans barraging internet-facing computers and software, and generating massive volumes of security alerts. Some of this activity is malicious, but a significant amount is not, and it’s getting to the point where it’s tough for security analysts to discern real threats from background noise. GreyNoise enables security teams to focus on the threats that really matter, rather than wasting their time investigating insignificant alerts.”

The Tech Ascension Awards are innovation-centered, selected from a pool of more than 500 applicants. The criteria include technology innovation, market research, and competitive differentiators. Best-in-class vendors that receive recognition from the Tech Ascension Awards solve critical industry challenges differently. As the Most Innovative Security Solution of 2021,GreyNoise has developed technology that collects, analyzes and labels data on IP addresses that scan the internet and saturate security tools with noise.

“The proliferation of ransomware, nation-state threats, and an uptick in cybercriminal activity due to COVID-19 are just some of the factors that have made a strong cybersecurity defense paramount for every business that touches sensitive data,” said David Campbell, CEO, Tech Ascension Awards. “We’re honored to recognize these industry leaders that have demonstrated their ability to defend organizations with unique approaches, innovative technology, and world-class talent.”

This award adds to an impressive roster of accolades earned by GreyNoise Intelligence recently, including:

  • Forbes Cybersecurity Awards 2020 named GreyNoise as “Most Intriguing Newcomer” for its ability to filter distracting background noise alerts from legitimate threats.
  • The CyberScoop 50 Awards shortlisted GreyNoise Founder and CEO Andrew Morris as “Most Inspiring Up and Comer,” a category which recognizes young leaders early in their careers who have done exceptional work and are on track to become the next generation of leaders in the cybersecurity industry.
