Booz Allen Hamilton today launched Cyber4Sight™ Threat Intelligence Services, which uses multiple data sources to identify and monitor an organization’s unique cyber security profile, determine its “attack surface,” and deploy military grade predictive intelligence to anticipate, prioritize and mitigate cyber threats 24/7. This anticipatory service produces real-time, practical indications and warnings so that commercial organizations can take defensive actions against cyber attacks long before they occur.
Today’s cyber threats are increasingly targeting corporations and governments to conduct industrial espionage, undermine business and financial operations and sabotage infrastructure. A perimeter defense alone is no longer sufficient protection – adversaries are too many, too fast and too sophisticated. Organizations need a new paradigm that combines real-time security resources with a rigorous method of mitigating cyber risks. Booz Allen has combined its deep functional cyber expertise from the intelligence community with its operational military experience to create Cyber4Sight.
“In today’s world, too many organizations wait until a cyber attack occurs before reacting to it,” said Booz Allen Vice Chairman Mike Mcconnell. “Cyber4Sight marks a shift from today’s largely reactive security posture to a preemptive, predictive intelligence perspective that ensures an organization stays one step ahead of its attackers.”
Booz Allen’s Cyber4Sight provides clients – from banks to insurance companies to energy utilities – with anticipatory cyber threat intelligence that allows them to cultivate a proactive security posture, get ahead of an attack, assess risks and take appropriate actions to mitigate future attacks. Cyber4Sight combines the science of Big Data with the art of analysis and information gathering to give clients a holistic, forward-looking cyber security program. This service is the result of a significant multi-year investment Booz Allen has made to create an infrastructure that globally integrates data collection, aggregation and analysis and engages cyber analysts from a myriad of disciplines.
McConnell continued, “Cyber4Sight stands apart from current services on the market. Booz Allen’s commitment to keeping cyber experts trained on the latest techniques, our all-source approach to adversary threat analysis and our use of in-depth linguistic and socio-cultural analysis make this product unique. Also, this new platform meets a critical ‘must have’ for all companies: it creates a more efficient bottom line by lowering operating costs and eliminates the need to create proprietary cyber security systems and hire and train cyber personnel each time the threat environment changes.”
