GreyNoise Intelligence, a startup focused on helping security teams mitigate warning fatigue, has raised nearly $ 5 million in seed funding to help the company grow its intelligence service, which helps teams “prioritize warnings that matter by quieting those that don’t.”
The company gathers, analyzes and marks mass internet scans using hundreds of nodes across the world, and attacks operation into a stream of what it calls “anti-threat data.” The company filters noise created by the mass scanners, search engines, bots, worms, and crawlers by analyzing this behavior.
“This context helps security teams minimize noise and give priority to signal-targeted attacks on their organization,” explains the company.
Andrew Morris, founder of GreyNoise Intelligence, told that the company has taken $4.8 million in seed funding led by CRV with participation from the Paladin Capital Group and angel investors Oliver Friedrichs, Ron Gula, and Sounil Yu, the former Bank of America chief security scientist.
“Every dollar of this investment is going to create a better product for both our community users and business customers,” Morris wrote on Twitter.
GreyNoise launched GreyNoise Alerts in April, a free service which alerts organizations when suspicious activity is detected on their network.
