Supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) is a control system architecture comprising computers, networked data communications and graphical user interfaces (GUI) for high-level process supervisory management, while also comprising other peripheral devices like programmable logic controllers (PLC) and discrete proportional-integral-derivative (PID) controllers to interface with process plant or machinery. The use of SCADA has been considered also for management and operations of project-driven-process in construction.

Giant Gray builds multi-sensor, artificial cognitive neurolinguistics software that provides enhanced safety, security, and operational efficiency to businesses and government agencies across complex physical environments – from sprawling corporate campuses and remote oil and gas operations to ports and public transportation systems, and global enterprise networks of data. The patented, adaptive, and self-learning algorithms of Giant Gray technology “see” anomalies often hidden in oceans of data, bringing to light actionable insights with an intelligence that is anything but artificial.
In short, Giant Gray helps dramatically improve business operational awareness and incident response for its customers – as well as prevent costly interruptions and breakdowns – through its Graydient technology platform with applications in industrial (SCADA/ICS), physical security and surveillance, and cybersecurity environments. Most data analytics technology is challenging to deploy, expensive to use and maintain, confusing to understand, and limited to identifying known problems in a particular domain.
Giant Gray’s patented technology reduces costs and simplifies usage and maintenance by teaching itself from observing data – and it excels at detecting the unexpected and providing improved context by correlating various, disconnected data sources. These real-time insights allow customers to make operational adjustments before early-warning signals grow into true incidents that impact safety, security, and business operations.
Graydient stands apart from traditional analytics with its artificial cognitive neurolinguistics approach to machine learning, meaning it creates a custom language to describe the data from scratch and is not limited to primitive, baseline behavior models from the start. This is the Giant Gray difference.
We see it.. .
ROMAD Cyber Systems
Our name, ROMAD – RObust MAlware Defense, captures the essence of our innovative technology and unique capability. ROMAD’s patented Malware Genetic Sequencing™ technology enables us to identify, analyze, and stop in real time entire viral “families”, as opposed to specific strains or individual variants.
This ability allows reliable, sustained detection and diffusion of a wide range of malware threats. We detect what OTHERS MISS – because we’re not stuck in the perpetual arms race with malware developers, passively looking for their next creation just to figure out how to catch it next time.
We detect BEFORE others can – because we’re not waiting to analyze the new variant as a prerequisite to detection. Derivative strains and variants are just that – derivative.
Our patent-pending family-based detection profiles let us cover the vast majority of derivatives on-the-fly. We detect with the LEAST AMOUNT OF OVERHEAD, both on our team and on your endpoint – because unlike legacy platforms, we don’t need millions of individual static signatures to match the hundreds of thousands of derivative strains and variants created every day.
We detect WHERE others cannot – our Malware Genetics™ and dynamic threat response technology allows ROMAD to sustain detection capability virtually in perpetuity. Isolated industrial deployment scenarios such as SCADA, ICS, and IoT environments where updates are infrequent, yet viral threats prevalent (think Stuxnet model), are a perfect place for ROMAD endpoint threat detection and response capabilities.
We DISRUPT the criminal malware economic model by eliminating the critical time-to-detection gap – the opportunity to monetize the malware before detection is developed by legacy static-signature platforms. We eliminate the economic incentive for malware writers, kit builders, and bot herders, thereby contributing to the elimination of the vast majority of profit-driven malware presently in the wild.
