Cybersecurity threats to healthcare organizations and patient safety are real. Hospitals and life sciences organizations are highly targeted by cyber threat actors because they possess so much high-value information, including patient health records, financial information, and intellectual property. But defending against cyber threats is incredibly challenging in healthcare’s turbulent environment of pandemic response, complicated regulation, digital transformation, and vulnerable medical devices. In particular:
GreyNoise helps SOC analysts and incident responders investigate and triage security alerts more quickly and effectively by separating targeted activity from irrelevant or harmless background noise.
And for security engineering teams building correlation rules and automation in SIEM and SOAR, GreyNoise data can be used to automatically de-prioritize and suppress noisy alerts. One GreyNoise customer reduced Splunk alerts by 25%.
GreyNoise provides an early warning system to identify when a vulnerability is being mass exploited at scale in the wild. This information is a critical data point for patch prioritization, as well as knowing when to “break the glass” and trigger emergency patching protocols.
During a mass exploitation attack, security teams are typically scrambling to fix the vulnerability, block ongoing attacks, and find early signs of compromise. GreyNoise provides dynamic IP blocklists, curated by CVE, that allow organizations to defend themselves during the early "window of exposure" from these attacks...and to hunt for known attacker IPs.
GreyNoise helps threat hunters and intelligence analysts by providing visibility and deep context into mass scanning IP addresses that form the early-stage attack infrastructure for many of today’s most dangerous cyber threats.
”GreyNoise helps us prioritize which IPs we should be most concerned about and research on our network.”
