Grey Market Labs Ranks Among Highest-Scoring Businesses on Inc. Magazine’s Annual List of Best Workplaces for 2022

By | Company News | No Comments

Grey Market Labs named among best workplaces.

Arlington, VA May 10, 2022: Grey Market Labs has been named to Inc. Magazine’s annual Best Workplaces list. Featured in the May/June 2022 issue, hitting newsstands on May 17, 2022, and prominently featured on Inc.com, the list is the result of a comprehensive measurement of American companies that have excelled in creating exceptional workplaces and company culture, whether operating in a physical or virtual facility.

Grey Market Labs is an employee-owned, certified B corporation that prioritizes team member flexibility and innovation. As co-owners, team members are bought into the public benefit mission and are recognized for their impact on the company and mission. Through the Inc. survey, one of our team members said: “Grey Market Labs is a place that I feel fosters independent critical thinking, recruits smart motivated people that lift everyone up, has leadership that is honest and transparent, and has a mission that excites and motivates me.”

As a results-driven and remote-first company, Grey Market Labs does not require team members to work the standard 9-to-5. Instead, team members determine their hours and decide where they want to work (remote, hybrid, or on-site), with no change to compensation. Responsibility to each other and their customers is a key hallmark of success at the Labs. The team travels to meet each other and customers to build connections, not for daily commutes. This gives tremendous flexibility to travel and work anywhere. To build company culture, we meet up regularly for collaboration and host company-wide offsites multiple times a year. This rapidly moves projects forward, fuels innovation, builds those critical connections and trust so important for a distributed team. It also helps drive what benefits the company offers, which are chosen annually by team requests.

Active collaboration between all team members, regardless of job title, is a key feature of Grey Market Lab’s culture. The team works in a highly coordinated way with daily, online chats and robust channels with history dating back to the company’s founding. Roles cut across experience levels and team members self-select areas of expertise, where junior engineers could be working directly with the CTO on a project and then take the lead on another effort.  This has increased buy-in, self-ownership and connectedness to the work.

After collecting data from thousands of submissions, Inc. selected 475 honorees this year. Each company that was nominated took part in an employee survey, conducted by Quantum Workplace, which included topics such as management effectiveness, perks, fostering employee growth, and overall company culture. The organization’s benefits were also audited to determine overall score and ranking.

Grey Market Labs CEO, Kristopher Schroeder says, “My cofounder, Ryan, and I started with a simple goal, to build a product company that we loved to work at. While some days can be hard, this has been the greatest journey of our careers and we are still early! From putting a public mission first at incorporation and now as a certified B-Corp, or making sure flexibility was available for everyone as a remote-first team, every step has been driven with a clear focus to enjoy what we are doing and be the best in our field at the intersection of privacy and productivity.”

“Not long ago, the term ‘best workplace’ would have conjured up images of open-office designs with stocked snack fridges,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “Yet given the widespread adoption of remote work, the concept of the workplace has shifted. This year, Inc. has recognized the organizations dedicated to redefining and enriching the workplace in the face of the pandemic.”

By | Company News | No Comments

Furthering its Mission as a Public Benefit Corp. to Enhance Security and Privacy for All

Arlington, VA, January 18, 2022 – Grey Market Labs, a leading cybersecurity research and development and product company, is excited to announce that it has officially become a Certified B Corporation. Grey Market Labs is the first cybersecurity product company to receive a B Corp Certification. This is the latest recognition as Grey Market Labs continues to change the landscape of privacy, security, and virtual computing to enable enterprise customers with automation, observability, and patented activity privacy protections. 

“We are thrilled to be recognized as a Certified B Corp,” said Grey Market Labs’ CEO Kristopher Schroeder. “Grey Market Labs launched as a Public Benefit Corporation for just this purpose – to create a fundamentally different cyber company; one with the ability to protect customer privacy while still being a commercial success. B Corp status is a great recognition that we are accomplishing the goals we set out to achieve.” 

To be certified as a B Corp (B stands for “Benefit”), a company must undergo a rigorous assessment of its business practices and meet the highest standards of social and environmental performance in addition to expanding its corporate responsibilities to include the interests of various stakeholders. The certification process is conducted by B Lab, a nonprofit organization that measures how a company treats workers, suppliers, environment, and the community.

For more than four years, Grey Market Labs has successfully delivered elite automation and cyber products to Fortune 500 and public organizations, providing SaaS (Software as a Service) automation for secure environments, and enabling important work such as fraud investigations, combatting disinformation, offensive and defensive cyber operations, real-time trusted data sharing and more. 

Grey Market Labs is widely recognized by government agencies and large-scale corporations as a partner that delivers proven and effective solutions to complex challenges surrounding privacy, cloud, and data protection. This recognition is the result of experience gained in intelligence operations and corporate cybersecurity. This unique background enables a deeper understanding of the challenges that modern agencies and enterprises face in staying protected and private as they work.

Grey Market Labs has recently launched Replica, a patented Secure Environments-as-a-Service (SEaaS) solution. Replica enables digital privacy, Zero Trust and secure two-way collaboration from the office, to the edge and beyond. This on-demand, scalable SEaaS product is the latest advancement in the public benefit mission to “protect digital privacy” and engineered to fundamentally change how work is done and how data stays private.

Now as a certified B Corporation, we will continue to make work more productive and protected for everyone. 

We are thrilled to be joining a global community of leaders who are using business as a force for good in the world. We hope to inspire and work with other leaders to do the same.

Replica fuses patented technology, intelligence tradecraft and Zero Trust architecture to create realistic profiles consisting of virtual hardware, operating systems, applications, networks, activity and data layers.

“Replica is the result of more than 20 years of experience in embedded tradecraft and intelligence operations. All of us on the Grey Market engineering team spent decades in offensive and defensive cyber warfare. We built a product that enables the kind of protection, efficiency and secure collaboration we needed then, but designed for the enterprise user of today.” Stated Kristopher Schroeder, Grey Market Labs / Replica CEO. “We’ve made it available as a SaaS product or hosted service so users can connect securely from anywhere, to work freely and confidently knowing their activity remains private.”

Replica’s virtual environments integrate with existing enterprise services like single-sign-on, proxies, data analysis and dashboarding tools. The software’s flexible architecture enables rapid deployments, continuous patching and updates, cloud management, sandboxing and more. In addition, Replica provides a comprehensive data set to allow rich audit and reporting functions and satisfy regulatory, compliance and risk analytics. Obscured from the outside world, while transparent and observable inside your organization.

The Replica product line includes three offerings: Replica Platform is the comprehensive solution for digital privacy for the enterprise. Replica Workspace creates authentic virtual environments for industry-specific uses. Replica Edge enables access and privacy from any device, in any location. ​​Use cases for Replica include threat hunting, investigations and digital forensics, executive protection, secure connectivity in remote or austere environments, protecting employees against malware and phishing, secure collaboration, and more.
