IW’s GRAYPATH is a leading-edge Attack Surface Management solution that addresses VPN vulnerabilities to secure classified communications. This exceptional innovation has garnered the respect of the high-tech homeland security, military, and intelligence community. 

GRAYPATH is a software-defined, cloud-hosted, Distributed Virtual Network (DVN) that uses Spread Spectrum IP technology to provide unprecedented security, performance, and reliability. GRAYPATH spread spectrum IP separates application traffic data packets and simultaneously bursts the packets across multiple secure communications channels and agnostic communications mediums. As a result, GRAYPATH provides unprecedented data security by simultaneously bursting application packets across multiple encrypted channels, provides superior performance by sharing data throughput capacity across numerous mediums, and ensures exceptional reliability through automated monitoring of data channels and autonomous “smart switching” of data pathways.

Intelligent Waves’ Chief Strategy Officer John Hammes stated, “We are honored and excited to receive this recognition for GRAYPATH, a strategic solution developed in collaboration to protect our nation’s defense and homeland security critical infrastructure.”
