Booz Allen Hamilton Launches Cyber4Sight Threat Intelligence Services
MCLEAN, Va. -- February 25, 2013
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
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.”
Cyber4Sight provides cyber threat situational awareness, and helps public and
private sector clients avoid surprises by delivering probability-based
anticipatory warnings that help them avoid the cost of post-event recovery and
mitigation, as well as the theft, destruction and public release of critical
data. Booz Allen’s Cyber4Sight holistic scope of managed service centers on:
*All-Source Data: Booz Allen’s data collection, aggregation and analysis
platform filters millions of pieces of data from thousands of sources in
real-time, resulting in highly tailored information that includes feedback
to continuously improve processes.
*Intelligence Analysis: Organizations make deliberate choices to conduct
business transactions over the Internet, creating a constantly changing
“attack surface” that can be exploited by cyber threats in real-time. Booz
Allen analysts provide 24/7/365 threat monitoring to produce actionable
and predictive information.
*Managed Client Services: The suite of Cyber4Sight products includes:
trip-wire reports, situation reports (SITREPs), spot reports (SPOTREP),
daily summaries and requests for analysis and response.
