Strategic Alliance Will Deliver Unparalleled Visibility, Threat Detection and Incident Response

DENVER AND PALO ALTO (January  31, 2017) – ProtectWise, the network security company that harnesses the power of the recorded network, and Phantom, the first company to provide a community-powered security automation and orchestration platform, today announced an integration partnership. With the ProtectWise-Phantom solution, customers will get streamlined and automated end-to-end incident management, along with unlimited full-fidelity forensics to fill the knowledge gap in incident response.

“ProtectWise and Phantom share a philosophy of empowering enterprise security teams with technologies that provide more effective security with fewer resources,” said Ramon Peypoch, Chief Product Officer, ProtectWise. “Collaborating as integration partners, we deliver pervasive visibility and limitless retrospection together with automated response for a seemingly infinite number of use cases — arming our customers with the kind of protection that results from members of the security community coming together in partnership.”

“The integration of Phantom with ProtectWise enables any security team to rapidly move from detection to triage and resolution, accomplishing in seconds what would have normally taken significantly longer,” said CP Morey, Vice President of Products and Marketing, Phantom. “With security talent limited and resources stretched, our combined solution delivers tremendous value in helping enterprises keep pace with the constantly shifting threat environment.”

ProtectWise delivers a new utility model for enterprise security. With The ProtectWise Grid, analysts get automated detection of advanced attacks, a long packet capture retention window, and the ability to intuitively interact with massive volumes of security data through an advanced visual presentation — transforming how enterprises handle complex threats with security delivered entirely from the cloud. With its unique form factor, user interface and functionality, The ProtectWise Grid enables a single security strategy for managing and securing enterprise, cloud and industrial control system (ICS) environments.

The Phantom platform serves as connective tissue for the many point products in an enterprise’s security infrastructure, currently providing more than 150 different actions and support for over 110 security point products. Phantom’s digital “playbooks” codify security operation plans, enabling analysts to manage the complex workflows needed for responding to critical situations with a repeatable and auditable process. Dedicated playbooks for The ProtectWise Grid immediately convert threat observations into actions executed on devices and assets connected to Phantom.

With this integration, the Phantom Community can also now include ProtectWise in its ever-growing playbook library, and Phantom customers can incorporate ProtectWise into their automated playbooks. Additionally, ProtectWise can now be enabled in significantly more use cases by leveraging the Phantom App ecosystem.
