RSA And Booz Allen Hamilton Join Forces To Help Government And Commercial Organizations Get The Upper Hand Against Advanced Cyber Threats

Booz Allen Hamilton and RSA:

News Summary:

  • RSA and Booz Allen Hamilton have announced a consulting and services partnership to help customers with cyber attack preparedness and incident response.
  • Both companies have agreed to jointly develop new information security service offerings that would help customers architect threat-resistant digital infrastructures as well as services that would help customers remediate recent or active cyber attacks.
  • The companies will collaborate on a joint go-to-market model to deliver services for large commercial and government enterprise clients.

Full Story:

RSA, The Security Division of EMC (NYSE: EMC), and Booz Allen Hamilton Inc. (NYSE:BAH) today announced a consulting and services partnership that is designed to provide enhanced offerings and make it easier for commercial and public sector customers to use the information security expertise and specialized technologies from both cyber security leaders.

The consulting and services partnership, announced today to industry and government leaders at RSA’s second Advanced Threats Summit in Washington, DC, will have three initial objectives: 1) to develop joint information security service offerings; 2) simplify client engagements for security preparedness and incident response; and 3) further assessing the commercialization of advanced security technologies from Booz Allen Hamilton that play a crucial role in detecting and defeating today’s sophisticated computer attacks.

The collaboration leverages RSA’s decades of experience in developing computer security software used by tens of thousands of customers worldwide as well as Booz Allen Hamilton’s depth of expertise in designing and managing security operations and cyber analytics for some of the world’s most sensitive government and commercial entities.

Through this consulting and services partnership the two companies will focus on:

  • Development of joint service offerings that would leverage the deep technical and analytical experience of both companies in designing threat-resistant digital infrastructures and in helping customers remediate recent or active cyber attacks.
  • Reciprocal agreements that will be designed to enable the companies to draw on each other’s security services as part of customer engagements, shortening the time to identify and deploy appropriate services while simplifying the customer’s engagement model. As part of this, Booz Allen Hamilton will help RSA expand global reach for its newly announced RSA Advanced Cyber Defense Services practice designed to provide breach readiness and incident response services to commercial and government enterprises (see related RSA news announcement).
  • Exploration of options for the commercialization of Booz Allen-developed software, known as ‘Automated First Responder (AFR)’ which is used in incident response and threat identification. The goal will be to facilitate faster and broader utilization of this advanced technology by incident response teams, including those offered by this consulting and services partnership. AFR technology is often deployed on end-point devices and servers during incident response, and provides information that can indicate the nature and scope of a potential compromise.

Executive Quotes:

Mike McConnell , Vice Chairman of Booz Allen Hamilton and former Director of National Intelligence and Director, National Security Agency:

“The lines between types of attackers, attack techniques, and even motives continue to blur in today’s increasingly connected digitally dependent world. Government agencies and a full range of commercial enterprises today must be able to defend themselves from a growing list of online adversaries, all of whom will be armed with increasingly sophisticated malware and tactics. To be successful, enterprises require much greater access to the wealth of information, technologies, and tactics that companies such as RSA and Booz Allen have developed through practical experience in defending the world’s most sensitive digital infrastructures. Our consulting and services partnership is one step in improving that collaboration, giving our clients and customers better and faster access to the expertise and tools they need to defend their information and valuable digital assets.”
