About us

The whole story dates back to 2013 when the founding team of Grey Wizard was working at Allegro/OLX. (Multibillion-Dollar E-commerce) At that time one lonely hacker managed to paralyze whole infrastructure of this huge internet company using just his laptop. The costs of this attack were estimated at millions of dollars. At the same time OLX experienced other problems with BOTs copying content and hackers using brute force attacks in order to break into users accounts. There was no product on the market that could stop these threats. Enough was enough. Radek Wesołowski (current CEO) got his friends from OLX together and decided to make a product that could prevent these kinds of malicious acts forever.

In short period of time two veterans of polish internet joined - Tomek Drożdżyński (Gamesture, Wykop.pl) and Michał Grzybkowski (Beyond.pl, Goldensubmarine.pl) Funding came from Garvest (owner of Allegro) and Sebastian Kulczyk (Manta Ray VC / Incredibles.pl). Two years passed in a room filled some of the brightest minds of polish IT scene and Grey Wizard was born. Whole software was built from scratch because it had to be designed for Machine Learning.

In 2016 one of the first big clients joined - Kinguin (3rd biggest gaming platform in the World) who tried other solutions available on the market but finally decided to give a chance to a small cybersecurity startup. To its surprise everything went smooth and Kinguin stayed ever since. The word spreaded and other giants followed: Fibaro one of the biggest smart home IOT networks, Multinational Electronics Distributors, Global Discount Supermarket, Networks Providers, Logistics Companies and a number of E-commerces joined and stayed ever since.

Today Grey Wizard focuses on developing of it’s Behaviour Based Anomaly Detection ( based on heuristics ) and Machine Learning Algorithms to protect websites, web applications and API in the new era of advanced threats.
