We’re solving the biggest problem plaguing the security industry today
Security teams are hard at work on the front lines: identifying, analyzing, and mitigating the threats facing organizations. Despite best efforts, however, most team’s incident backlog continues to grow larger every day. The reality is that there simply aren’t enough skilled professionals to analyze the volume of incidents that organizations face daily.
Most organizations have already made a huge security investment in both talent and technology. They want to better leverage existing resources by deploying tools that maximize efficiency and scale to create a unified defense system that is greater than the sum of its parts.
Security Automation & Orchestration (SA&O) is the force multiplier you need to marshal the full power of your security investment.
Phantom is the first community-powered security automation & orchestration platform. Phantom’s open and extensible architecture helps you work smarter, respond faster, and strengthen your defenses.
Phantom was founded in 2014 by enterprise security veterans Oliver Friedrichs and Sourabh Satish who have helped propel companies like Symantec, Sourcefire, Cisco and others to success.
