With the addition of Bob Rudis and Paul Murphy, we now have an executive management team in place to take GreyNoise through its next stage of growth, and beyond."

- Grew its community to over 27,000 cybersecurity analysts, representing an increase of nearly 35%
- Introduced Investigate 4.0, a threat intelligence tool that helps security analysts identify and respond to opportunistic "scan-and-exploit" attacks in real time.
- Earned six awards in 2022, including The 2022 Fortress Cybersecurity Awards, The Globee 18th Annual 2022 Cyber Security Global Excellence Awards, The 14th Annual 2022 Golden Bridge Business and Innovation Awards, The 2022 Saas Awards, The Cyber Top 20, and The Cybersecurity Excellence Awards.

"With the rise in internet-wide opportunistic exploitation, the amount of time between the disclosure of new vulnerabilities and the start of active exploitation has been reduced to a matter of hours," said Bob Rudis, VP Data Science, GreyNoise. "GreyNoise provides security teams with the contextual data required to quickly identify scanning activity targeting vulnerable systems exposed to the internet. This has massive potential to drive the industry forward, and I'm thrilled to join their team at this pivotal moment in the company's growth."

"GreyNoise goes beyond traditional threat intelligence platforms by reducing the noise for security teams," said Paul Murphy, VP Sales, GreyNoise. "Rather than barraging security teams with alerts, GreyNoise enables security teams to prioritize emerging threats and reduce the time they spend on harmless events, saving time and increasing capacity 20-40%. I'm convinced that the company's data-driven approach will revolutionize the industry, and I'm delighted to help them take advantage of the enormous opportunity ahead."
