Internet noise consists of scans and attacks from thousands of unique IP addresses per day, resulting in thousands of events for security teams to analyze. At best, internet noise is distracting, and at worst, malicious.
At GreyNoise, we’ve found that internet noise is responsible for 38% of security alerts seen by our customers and prospects on average, generating a tremendous volume of false positives and low-fidelity alerts that cost SOC teams time and productivity.
At the same time, internet-based attacks (a component of internet noise) are putting even more pressure on security teams with internet-based attacks surpassing phishing to take the #1 attack vector position globally. Today, companies have less time than ever to respond as they scramble to defend against mass exploitation attacks like Log4j.
GreyNoise is helping the DoD’s Defense Innovation Unit (DIU) identify and understand internet-wide scan and attack activity. This $30 million production contract will allow the GreyNoise platform to be purchased and utilized by all DoD organizations over a 5 year period.
