RSA and Booz Allen Partnership to Offer Cyber Services; Mike McConnell Comments

RSA Federal and Booz Allen Hamilton have teamed up to develop new information security service offerings which intend to help customers fix recent or active cyber attacks, Booz Allen announced today.

Through a consulting and services partnership, RSA and Booz Allen will offer enhanced cyber solutions to the commercial and public sectors.

“To be successful, enterprises require much greater access to the wealth of information, technologies, and tactics that companies such as RSA and Booz Allen have developed through practical experience in defending the world’s most sensitive digital infrastructures,” said Mike McConnell, vice chairman of Booz Allen Hamilton and former director of the National Security Agency.

The partners gave industry and government leaders three initial objectives of the partnership at RSA’s second Advanced Threats Summit in Washington, D.C.

Number one is to develop joint information security service offerings, the second is to simplify client engagements for security preparedness and incident response, and number three is to further assess the commercialization of advanced security technologies from Booz Allen Hamilton that play a crucial role in detecting and defeating today’s sophisticated computer attacks.

“Through our consulting and services partnership, we will be better able to put our skills and expertise to work for customers in the public and private sectors,” said retired rear admiral Mike Brown, vice president and general manager of RSA Federal and Critical Infrastructure.

The partnership will leverage RSA’s computer security software development and Booz Allen’s security management and cyber analytics for government and commercial customers.

Through this consulting and services partnership, the two companies will develop threat-resistant digital infrastructures, expand RSA’s Advanced Cyber Defense Services and other reciprocal agreements and explore options to commercialize Booz Allen’s “Automated First Responder” software for incident response and threat identification.
