Booz Allen cyber-enabled platforms to include Acalvio ShadowPlex for Deception-based Advanced Threat Detection

Santa Clara, CA – May 24, 2022 Acalvio Technologies today announced a strategic partnership with Booz Allen Hamilton (NYSE: BAH) to deliver sophisticated Cyber Deception capabilities to government and commercial clients to combat advanced cybersecurity challenges, including advanced persistent threats (APTs), ransomware, and insider threats.
Government and industry organizations have recognized the efficacy of Cyber Deception as APT actors become increasingly sophisticated. With the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) urging immediate deployment of Cyber Deception for Network Security in its 2022-2026 Strategic Technology Roadmap, Version 4 and the launch of the MITRE Engage framework, there is an expanding need for adversary engagement operations to secure networks based on deception.
Acalvio’s patented and award-winning Autonomous Deception product, ShadowPlex, enables organizations to detect, investigate, and respond to malicious activity both in information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) environments, across on-premises and cloud deployments. ShadowPlex is anchored on innovations in Distributed Deception, Software Defined Networking (SDN), and Artificial Intelligence (AI), enabling security teams to cut through the cycle of endless alerts and accelerate threat detection by focusing on high fidelity detections, all while minimizing the incidence of potential false positives.
“ShadowPlex, the only Advanced Cyber Deception product with FedRAMP certification, provides differentiated and effective Active Defense and Identity Protection solutions to address the increasingly sophisticated threat landscape,” said Ram Varadarajan, CEO and Co-founder of Acalvio Technologies. “Acalvio is proud to partner with Booz Allen Hamilton to bring these innovative solutions to their federal clients and their global customer base, both in IT and OT.”
“To keep pace with adversaries in the asymmetric cyber battlespace, organizations must enhance their proactive defense to include autonomous deception. Acalvio equips government, military, and commercial organizations with a critical tool to respond to and defeat threat actors from within a given network,” said Garrettson Blight, Director of National Cyber Solutions at Booz Allen. “This partnership will enable our clients to bolster their zero trust, identity management, and threat hunting efforts to achieve a new level of proactive defense, meeting the adversary head-on to secure IT and OT environments.”
The strategic partnership adds Cyber Deception to Booz Allen’s multiple Cyber-Enabled Platforms for Operational Technology, Cloud Security, 5G Technology Security, Connected Health and Weapons Systems Cybersecurity, and complements Booz Allen’s existing operational capabilities such as Threat Hunting and Zero Trust.
