Winner of this year's prestigious RSA Conference Innovation Sandbox competition, Phantom offers a security orchestration and automation solution that aims to help enterprises close the gap between a rising tide of threats and a shortage of security staff. That solution hits on a growing trend to embrace orchestration and automation solutions by both vendors and partners. The Palo Alto, Calif.-based company's platform allows companies to orchestrate prevention and response, as well as automate simpler security tasks. In addition to winning the Innovation Sandbox competition, Phantom landed $6.5 million in Series A funding in September and a strategic investment and technology development agreement from In-Q-Tel in April.
