Booz Allen, Splunk join forces to combat cybersecurity risks

Booz Allen Hamilton and Splunk are joining forces to deliver predictive security analytics and operationalize threat intelligence.

The alliance will see Booz Allen leveraging Splunk security solutions to an even broader audience.

One focus area in particular is integrating threat intelligence with existing cyber operations to provide actionable insights that accelerate detection and mitigation of emerging cyber threats, create extended offerings around security, and generate enhanced predictive cyber analytics and richer data sets for response, the companies said in a release.

Another focus area is addressing the security challenges from the Internet of Things.

“As we all become more connected, leaders need to understand how the Internet of Things increases their exposure to risk, and then how they can mitigate those risks,” said Angie Messer, Booz Allen Hamilton executive vice president and leader of the company’s Predictive Intelligence Business.

The first joint offering is an incident response flyaway kit which will enable users to conduct post-cyber-breach analysis to pinpoint weaknesses.

In addition to the partnership, the two companies will host events to help business leaders understand how to prepare and respond to cyber incidents and threats.
