The GreyNoise solution for defending mass exploitation attacks
GreyNoise helps security teams quickly identify and respond to mass exploitation attacks against new and existing vulnerabilities. GreyNoise attack telemetry allows security teams to:
- identify trending internet attacks targeting specific vulnerabilities and CVEs,
- quickly triage alerts based on malicious, benign, or targeted IP classifications, and
- block and hunt for IP addresses opportunistically attacking a specific vulnerability.
Attack Trend Visibility
GreyNoise Trends gives security analysts an early warning system to identify and respond to internet attacks targeting specific vulnerabilities. he Trends graph shows the number of unique IP addresses targeting a specific vulnerability or CVE over time. This unique visualization allows security teams to identify and prioritize internet threats based on how actively a vulnerability is being exploited in the wild.
IP Intent Classification
GreyNoise provides deep context into every IP address we observe mass-scanning for a specific CVE. We classify the intent of each IP based on its behavior and identity. Our customers use this data to quickly triage alerts during a mass exploitation attack, separating benign security firms and researchers from truly malicious sources.
Dynamic IP Block Lists
GreyNoise provides a dynamic list of IP addresses actively scanning for a vulnerability in the past 24 hours. This data can be used to provide near-term protection by blocking attacks at the firewall or WAF, as well as providing indicators of compromise to use to hunt for potentially compromised systems.
Taken together, this functionality allows security teams to quickly understand if a vulnerability is relevant to their organization, buying the time they need to put security defenses in place.
