Grey Wizard: Advanced Cyber Security, Supported by Artificial Intelligence
Radosław Wesołowski, CEO
Every day the world encounters new cyber threats and attacks, many of which become impossible to contain. These attacks are becoming more advanced than the average security patches that the firms employ for their systems, rendering grave consequences on the firms’ workflow. Understanding the necessity to fill up this void, Grey Wizard uses machine learning (ML) to provide cloud-based, military grade, managed security services designed to protect websites and applications. “ML allows us, not only to offer tailored security solutions for each client but also to fight against the ‘hackers of tomorrow,’ new undefined threats and advanced hacking attacks,” states Radoslaw Wesolowski, CEO.
The firm provides comprehensive and continuous protection against cyber attacks. It protects against DDoS threats, BOTs attacks, ensures the security of web applications and API.
Currently, ML algorithms stop 21 percent of threats detected and the rest is mitigated by OWASP ModSecurity set, along with Grey Wizard security rules. The adequately defined rules filter out incorrect packets and attack attempts, helping websites receive only clean traffic. This precise filtering is achieved by employing the Grey Wizard Shield. It is an all-in-one product with a focus on Web Application Firewall and API Security. The Shield protects a webpage both against standard attack types and new cyber threats. To activate the shield (protection), no changes are required to the applications as the entire HTTP/ HTTPS traffic is directed to the Grey Wizard filtering layers.
Grey Wizard has helped its clients overcome their challenges and attain desired outcomes with it impeccably advanced services
Connecting to the infrastructure is very easy and doesn’t require any hardware, software or coding. Very often it takes no more than 15 minutes.
One of the areas that the Grey Wizard Shield focuses on is DDoS protection. To employ this protection, the company built an infrastructure based on Anycast, which allows distributing attacks between scrubbing centers. This type of architecture enables Grey Wizard to scale horizontally, working as a reverse proxy server, so the attacks are mitigated straight away on the edge of the infrastructure.
“Grey Wizard is not just a product. When you become a client of Grey Wizard, our team of engineers and cybersecurity veterans becomes a part of your IT team. That is something clients value a lot,” quotes Wesolowski. Grey Wizard employs an “individual” approach to cater to its all of its clients’ needs and requirements uniquely. Providing round the clock assistance, clients can contact directly to the Grey Wizard team or any of its engineers anytime.
Grey Wizard has helped its clients overcome intricate challenges and attain desired outcomes. One such instance was providing an elaborate live website security wall for the gaming giant. It is one of the biggest gaming platforms in the world, therefore prone to strong cybersecurity issues. The multinational company faced two pressing cybersecurity issues, threatening their business model—one with DDoS attacks and the second one with credential stuffing (Distributed Brute Force Attacks), which were much harder to detect.
After testing numerous solutions, the gaming giant approached Grey Wizard for its superior services. With the released beta version, Grey Wizard's ML algorithms picked up Brute Force attacks immediately and went ahead solving every single one of them. Also, a team of Grey Wizard engineers tailored some additional rules to tackle numerous smaller issues inside the infrastructure. The platform systems have remained highly guarded since then.
Currently, Greywizard's main sketch is to expand physically, building “point of presence” infrastructures globally, delivering high-quality WAF and API protection to the international market. It has also set up partners in Nordics, Eastern Europe and Southern Europe.
