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:
Metrics & Reporting
A Security Automation and Orchestration (SA&O) platform should provide a number of important capabilities supporting a range of common SOC functions.
The Orchestrator oversees all activity on the platform, assisting with decision making, synchronization, and coordination of multiple interdependent tasks.Next: 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.Previous Next: Case Management
Once escalated, Case Management drives the broader cross-functional case or incident lifecycle from creation to resolution.Previous Next: 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.Previous Next: 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.Previous Next: App Framework
An App Framework provides an extensible interface for new apps to connect the thousands of point security products available today.Previous Next: Metris & Reporting
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.Previous Next: 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.Previous
How Phantom Works
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.Next: Playbooks
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 supports 150+ different abstract security actions across the set of supported products. Examples include:
Detonate a file in a supported sandbox
Perform a geolocation lookup on a given IP address
Look for a particular file on endpoints
Block a URL on perimeter devices
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.
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 bring to bear all of the experience of your organization to make better decisions and act quickly, confidently, and consistently.
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.
The Phantom Community Edition is a free, consumption limited, version of the Phantom Enterprise Edition. The Community Edition allows you to learn with a fully-functional version, test drive the platform in your environment, and collaborate with other members of Phantom community.
