Booz Allen unveils new solutions focused on law enforcement, cyber security at 1776 incubator demo
On November 21, McLean, VA-based Booz Allen Hamilton clients – from executives at Fortune 500 firms to CIOs and CISOs at civil and federal agencies to senior military staff – were able to experience first-hand how the firm’s engineering, cyber security, rapid prototyping, and data science experts address these and other challenges at a recent product demonstration, hosted by Washington, DC tech incubator 1776.
According to the company, Booz Allen is in the midst of a transformative, long-range strategy that adds a new dimension to its management consulting heritage and problem orientation by placing strong emphasis on innovation, analytics, and engineering.
Helping fuel this progress is the firm’s focus on establishing new strategic partnerships with other innovators, including 1776, an organization that describes itself as a “platform to reinvent America by connecting the hottest startups from around the world with the assets of the most powerful city on Earth.”
Earlier this year, Booz Allen and 1776 began working together to address global-scale challenges impacting the way people live and work. At the 1776 innovation space in downtown Washington, the Booz Allen team demonstrated several recently launched products and others in development, including:
- VAMPIRETM, a handheld, ruggedized, tactical forensic device for in-field operators and investigators to perform rapid Latent Fingerprint detection and identification—providing in near-real-time what currently clients wait days to determine.
- Cyber4Sight™, which provides organizations with highly predictive intelligence about cyber-attacks—including their sources and timing—by analyzing an organization’s dynamic attack surface as a threat actor would.
- Explore Data Science, an interactive, web-based training course that introduces data science theory and techniques to help expand the expertise of programmers, mathematicians, and other technical professionals.
“The demands placed on our clients are growing increasingly complex, yet clients have less time and fewer resources to address them,” said Karen Dahut, executive vice president at Booz Allen and leader of the firm’s strategic innovation group (SIG). “Our product demonstration, Booz Allen’s partnership with 1776, and our company’s pivot towards delivering innovative problem-solving products show our bold approach to address needs facing our clients and society at large.”
