What Makes GreySpark Different?

Using Business Intelligence to evolve the way Security Operations interacts with the business.

Get Power From Perspective

GreySpark is a business intelligence platform for security operations that makes sense of disparate cyber security data sources, empowering IT security leaders to effectively prioritize events and take action in a meaningful way.

Much like business intelligence solutions in other industries, such as retail, supply chain and finance, GreySpark brings this level of perspective to Security Operations.

  • Make Decisions Faster

    Reduce analysis and make decisions in minutes, not months.

  • Improve Operational Performance

    Manage the performance of your IT security program from a consolidated dashboard.

  • Track Tangible Results

    Watch your metrics improve against benchmarks as you make recommended changes.

  • Cut Through the Noise

    Reduce misconfigurations and focus on events that have the most actionable impact.

GreySpark vs. Analysis and Reporting Solutions

GreySpark Security Operations Business Intelligence Security Information and Event Management Governance, Risk and Compliance In-House Custom Data Analytics Generalized Business Intelligence Solutions
Vendor-agnostic Data Ingest Any security product - Supports syslog, SNMP, APIs Yes for supported data sources and a fee No automated data ingest capabilities Difficult to implement. Significant and ongoing effort. Yes for supported data sources and a fee
Empirically Proven Metrics Patent Pending Metrics incorporated into product Some have included queries - not sure though No metrics - report only None - requires extensive data science effort to build No - certainly not for cyber security
Internal Visibility to Operation DCA deployment within your network - on-prem and Cloud-based Yes for supported data sources and a fee No automated visibility - focused on controls only Yes with extensive internal effort for gathering and analyzing User can configure a BI solution to accept visibility but requires extensive customization
Customizable Queries Elastic Stack backs event storage for extensive querying capabilities Yes for supported data sources and a fee for querying raw data None - basic report format only Yes with extensive internal effort for gathering and analyzing Yes
Configurable Storage Extendable data storage for minimal fees for extended data retention for Cloud-based and on-premise deployments Yes for expensive per GB fees and internal effort from the storage team. Limited information does not require mass storage. Yes with extensive internal effort for configuring Yes - not sure about time to configure, fees, or time to implement.
Configurable Reports Canned and custom reports within the product and full Kibana interface for additional reporting capabilities. Yes None - basic report format only Yes with extensive internal effort for configuring Yes - not sure about time to configure, fees, or time to implement.
Implement in Hours/Days Deply DCA within minutes for collection, fully autommated deployment process for Cloud-based deployments have metrics within 2 weeks. Average SIEM deployment is 15.3 months and costs $1.3MM. No - requires significant investment in configuration and ongoing maintenance No - requires significant investment to build, deploy, and configure. No - extensive time to deploy and configure. Requires Professional Services.
Comprehensive Key Control Indicators (KRI) Cyber Defense Matrix Control Coverage, Operational Status and Compliance Challenge Indicators Yes, but requires customized reports Partial - if configured properly shows snapshot of status, no continuous monitoring No - requires significant investment to build, deploy, and configure. No - extensive time to deploy and configure. Requires Professional Services.
3rd Party Risk Metrics Vendors can be instrumented without divulging sensitive information. Yes, but with privacy/security concerns Yes, but with privacy/security concerns No No
Key Risk and Control Indicators Out of the box, contiuous 6 quantitative, 3 qualitative metrics and cyber defense matrix Yes, but requries extensive customization Primarily Control Indicators Manually Entered. Not Automated/Continuous No - requires significant investment to build, deploy, and configure. No
Summary: Does everything quickly, cheaply, with proven quantitative metrics An expensive and time-consuming log management toolkit with limited provided metrics. Limited manual entry on control activities. Expensive and time-consuming build decision Expensive and time-consuming deployment and configuration - comes with no security intelligence.

GreySpark vs. Specialized Solutions

GreySpark Security Operations Business Intelligence IT Vendor Risk Management Vulnerability Scanning Systems Threat Intelligence Platforms User Entity Behavorial Analytics
Vendor-agnostic Data Ingest Any security product - Supports syslog, SNMP, APIs External View No data ingest - scans only No data ingest - except for certain products No - generally does not use existing vendor data
Empirically Proven Metrics Patent Pending Metrics incorporated into product Yes from an external perspective only No metrics - report only No metrics - report only No - this is a new field with little empirical evidence
Internal Visibility to Operations DCA deployment within your network - on-prem and Cloud-based None - external visibility only - no insight into your internal network Yes for vulnerability assessment of internal environment No - threat intel provides information to look for in your network Yes
Customizable Queries Elastic Stack backs event storage for extensive querying capabilities None - external report only None - produces report only None - produces report only Difficult to implement as AI and ML techniques require specialized skills
Configurable Storage Extendable data storage for minimal fees for extended data retention for Cloud-based and on-premise deployments Limited information does not require mass storage. Limited information does not require mass storage. Limited information does not require mass storage. Requires massive amounts of data, storage for any amount of time challenging
Configurable Reports Canned and custom reports within the product and full Kibana interface for additional reporting capabilities. None - external report only None - produces report only Yes for limited information. Yes for limited information.
Implement in Hours/Days Deply DCA within minutes for collection, fully autommated deployment process for Cloud-based deployments have metrics within 2 weeks. Yes from an external perspective only Yes - for vulnerability assessment of internal environment Yes for limited information. Not likely. Requires extensive knowledge of organization & operations
Comprehensive Key Control Indicators (KRI) Cyber Defense Matrix Control Coverage, Operational Status and Compliance Challenge Indicators No No No No
3rd Party Risk Metrics Vendors can be instrumented without divulging sensitive information. Yes from an external perspective only Yes, but with privacy/security concerns No At the boundary, only.
Key Risk and Control Indicators Out of the box, contiuous 6 quantitative, 3 qualitative metrics and cyber defense matrix External Risk Indicators, Only No External Risk Inicators, Only Internal Risk Indicators, Only
Summary: Does everything quickly, cheaply, with proven quantitative metrics Extremely limited visibility into actual risk posture with no knowledge if internal risk posture. Listing of vulnerabilities against existing devices - not daily activity monitoring. Extensive knowledge of threats facing the organization. No monitoring of activity, metrics, or reporting. Powerful but misses hygiene factors, "legacy" threats and genuine outside attacks

Get a comprehensive business intelligence solution with pre-defined metrics specifically designed for an organization’s security operations.

Greyspark deploys in hours or days, costs are minimal especially with a Cloud-based deployment where there is no need to coordinate your networking, security, and storage teams, and delivers proven quantitative and qualitative metrics to trend your organization over time.

“Greyspark provides an instant visual representation of our cyber security posture. With their cloud-based technology, we can quickly drill down into the data to discover what impacted our risk score - no long waiting for queries to finish. In addition, FourV systems has built a robust flexible system which can ingest many kinds of data available now, and could easily be adapted for future data types.”
