Phantom Automates and Orchestrates Your Security Operations

The Phantom platform integrates your existing security technologies, providing a layer of connective tissue between them. It supercharges your Security Operations Center (SOC) by automating repetitive tasks and orchestrating multiple concurrent workflows.

Phantom works across the lifecycle of many security scenarios including:

Phishing Investigations Indicator of Compromise (IOC) Hunting Insider Threat Mitigation Compromised Mobile Endpoint Remediation Incident Enrichment Vulnerability Management with Patch Validation Data Breaches with Exfiltration Phishing Investigations Vulnerability Management with Patch Validation Incident Enrichment Insider Threat Mitigation Data Breaches with Exfiltration Compromised Mobile Endpoint Remediation Indicator of Compromise (IOC) Hunting

Phantom Features

A Security Automation and Orchestration (SA&O) platform should provide a number of important capabilities supporting a range of common SOC functions.

Features List

The Orchestrator oversees all activity on the platform, assisting with decision making, synchronization, and coordination of multiple interdependent tasks.

Alert Management

Alert Management drives the triage and response to low-level alerts, events, or other security objects in either an automated, semi-automated, or manual fashion.

Case Management

Once escalated, Case Management drives the broader cross-functional case or incident lifecycle from creation to resolution.

Playbook Management

Playbook Management assists with the maintenance of Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs). Ideally, this capability should provide revision control and sharing across a community or privately within an organization.

Automation Editor

The Automation Editor assists users with the codification of manual security operations workflows into automated playbooks. The editor should provide a mechanism for construction of playbooks with and without knowledge of the underlying programming language.

App Framework

An App Framework provides an extensible interface for new apps to connect the thousands of point security products available today.

Metrics & Reporting

Metrics and Reporting provide human oversight and auditing capabilities. Dashboards consolidate all critical information needed to understand the current state of the platform. Reports provide executive level and detailed technical reporting for any event or case.

Automation Engine

The Automation Engine executes individual security actions. Actions are discrete, individual analyst functions traditionally performed manually. Actions are abstracted from individual point security products and translated into machine-executed tasks.

Phantom Operates on Data Sources

Use any type and source of security data to trigger Phantom into action, such as incidents, threat indicators, vulnerabilities, emails, and more. Phantom gives you full access to the contents of your security data for the purposes of automated decision making.

You can either push your data to Phantom, or pull it from a number of externally supported SIEM or analytics tools.

Phantom Executes Playbooks

Playbooks are the codification of your security operations (SecOps) plan. In practice, they’re high-level Python scripts that Phantom interprets in order to execute your mission. Playbooks hook into the Phantom platform and all of its capabilities in order to execute actions, ensuring a repeatable and auditable process around your security operations.

Playbooks Call Actions

Actions are the high-level primitives that Phantom uses within Playbooks. Phantom integrates with over 500 APIs across over 120 security technologies. Examples include:

  • "Detonate File"

    Detonate a file in a supported sandbox

  • "Geolocate IP"

    Perform a geolocation lookup on a given IP address

  • "Hunt File"

    Look for a particular file on endpoints

  • "Block URL"

    Block a URL on perimeter devices

  • "Quarantine Device"

    Disconnect a device from the network via NAC

Actions are exposed by Phantom Apps

Phantom Apps extend the platform by integrating third-party security products and tools. Most security technologies have RESTful APIs, command line interfaces, or other management interfaces that allow Phantom Apps to connect and execute actions. Apps expose the set of actions that they support back to the Phantom platform.

Apps Connect to Assets

Assets are the security and infrastructure assets that you integrate with the Phantom platform. Examples include: firewalls, endpoint products, reputation services, sandboxes, directory services, and SIEMs.

Why Phantom


Phantom provides a free community edition and encourages all community members to contribute apps and playbooks that extend the platform to address new security use cases.


Teams need to communicate quickly with one another and document their work for others to understand later. The Phantom platform includes a collaboration interface within the Mission Control area as well as a Slack app to enable effective team communication.


Phantom Playbooks codify complex workflows that allow first responders to bring to bear all of the experience of your organization to make better decisions and act quickly, confidently, and consistently.

Dialable Automation

Phantom Playbooks can operate with the right level of supervision for a given situation. Phantom supports having a human in the loop, on the loop, or out of the loop, depending on the task at hand.


The Phantom platform is hardened and encrypts sensitive information, it supports two-factor authentication, third-party credential systems, and provides robust role-based access control.


Phantom was built from the ground up to successfully operate in demanding environments where the volume and velocity of security events can vary dramatically from 1 in one minute to 10,000 in the next.

Open and Extensible

The Phantom platform was designed for openness and extensibility. As new security scenarios arise, you can easily add new products and new playbooks to your defense system.


The Phantom onboarding assistant helps configure system settings, connect to a data source, and activate your first few playbooks. Once deployed, our visual IDE (Integrated Development Environment) makes it easy to edit existing or create new playbooks—even if you can’t write code.
