Booz Allen and Phantom Deliver Intelligent Automation to Help Federal and Commercial Clients Combat Threats, Empowering Security Pros to Focus on the Most Critical Issues
McLean, VA — Picture this: cyber teams defending today’s businesses identify and manage as many as 17,000 malware alerts every week, according to the Ponemon Institute. And with the remediation of each incident requiring hours of analysts’ time – on teams already strapped for talent and resources – organizations are falling behind adversaries lurking online.
Faced with this increasing volume and severity of cyber security incidents, and a growing shortage of cyber trained workforce to handle these incidents, commercial and government enterprises are struggling to find ways to increase response effectiveness and control costs. To address this, Booz Allen Hamilton (NYSE:BAH) and Phantom announced today a new strategic alliance, fusing Booz Allen’s decades of mission intelligence and deep expertise architecting and implementing cyber solutions, with Phantom’s leading security automation and orchestration technology platform. Together, the firms will deliver new automation and orchestration solutions for incident response and threat defense operations that will assist organizations in achieving cyber resiliency.

“Organizations are faced with an increased volume and sophistication of cyber threats putting significant pressure on cyber security professionals,” said Angela Messer, Booz Allen Hamilton Executive Vice President and leader of the firm’s Cyber innovation business. “Booz Allen’s accumulated cyber intelligence, and machine intelligence integration expertise paired with Phantom’s cutting-edge platform will together empower organizations to battle cyber threats in new ways, with surgical precision and at machine speed.”
Booz Allen will deliver its significant cyber knowledge and proven security operations plans by crafting new “playbooks” for use on Phantom’s platform, incorporating best practices in Cyber Threat Intelligence, Incident Response, and Security Operations. These playbooks, which codify security and business processes, help leaders break down common organizational siloes that inhibit collaboration and prevent rapid containment and resolution of cyber events. The playbooks are based on Booz Allen’s commercial expertise and decades of defense and intelligence work with the federal government. The firm’s cyber insights are rooted in deep technical, analytic, engineering, and cyber mission experience.
Oliver Friedrichs, CEO & Founder of Phantom, said, “Knowing how you will respond in an attack and automating that plan consistently with proven playbooks is the only way to keep pace with today’s rapidly changing threat environment. Booz Allen’s deep security solution expertise combined with Phantom’s industry leading technology is the combination clients need to move at the speed of the threat.”
Additionally, this platform will provide organizations with a new level of insight into cyber events that further bolsters resiliency. Each time Phantom handles an event, information is logged describing the attack vector and other critical metadata. Booz Allen and clients can then analyze this descriptive data to uncover threat vector trends and integrate new actionable intelligence that helps security teams improve their defenses against similar future attacks.
