Prophecy International and Four Inc. partnership will enhance the threat hunting and investigation capabilities of U.S. state, local, and federal government agencies


Prophecy International Holdings Ltd (ASX:PRO), today announced a strategic partnership with Virginia-based federal IT (Information Technology) contracting consultancy Four Inc.. The partnership will enable Four Inc. to introduce Snare, Prophecy’s flagship cybersecurity product and market-leading log management solution, to the firm’s state, local, and federal government customers.

“Four Inc. has an incredible reputation for offering trusted IT and financial consulting services to U.S. government and defense agencies. The addition of Four Inc. to our partner ecosystem is in-line with Prophecy’s global focus on developing strategic partnerships that help us bring-best-of breed cybersecurity solutions and services to customers across the globe,” says Bill Jessen, Federal Government Director of Sales for Snare.

Designed and built for military and defense, Snare’s reliable log management and secure log transit capabilities will help joint customers comply with Executive Order 14028 and similar cybersecurity mandates calling for improvements in cybersecurity posture and specifically log management practices for U.S. government agencies, critical infrastructure agencies, and organizations within the federal supply chain.

  • Improve Threat Hunting Speed: Snare automated alerts enable a SOC or analyst to respond to anomalous activities in real-time.
  • Meet Reporting Obligations & Mitigate Threats with Enhanced Investigation Capabilities: Snare Database Activity Monitoring, File Integrity Monitoring (FIM), File Access Monitoring (FAM), Registry Activity Monitoring (RIM), and Registry Activity Monitoring (RAM) provide security teams with the most detailed event log data available to identify who got in, what they took, and how they got in a matter of minutes vs months.
  • Improve Compliance while Saving Costs with Unlimited, Pristine Log Data Storage: Store log data in pristine condition for an unlimited amount of time to remain compliant with industry standards that require the storage of logs for as many as seven years. Snare’s market-leading 50:1 compression rate and truncation are additional cost savings, dramatically reducing data storage and ingestion costs.

“Four Inc. is excited to add Snare, a cybersecurity product and log management solution from Prophecy International to our cybersecurity portfolio,” said Chris Wilkinson, Four Inc.’s Senior Vice President of Platform Sales. “Snare enables our channel to strengthen our government customers’ cyber defenses, improve response times to critical threats, and satisfy government compliance requirements.”
