Intelligent Waves (IW), a leading tech integrator that delivers mission-focused multi-domain operational expertise and innovation to the Government through high-impact technology solutions, is thrilled to announce they won the 2024 BIG Innovation’ Award from Business Intelligence Group for their leading-edge defense cybersecurity platform, Phantom.

Phantom Next-Gen Platform is unique in that it allows the U.S. DoD & Special Operations to access foreign points of presence to gather open-source information & do research while protecting organizations & individuals from foreign intelligence. Additionally, due to its secure, cloud-based nature, the unclassified telework capability does not require access to a classified facility or network. As such, government cyber-defense agencies can utilize a globally mobile workforce more effectively.

The BIG Innovation Award identifies and recognizes the organizations devoted to bringing new ideas to life. This award honors those who paved a new way for products, services, experiences, and community service.

John Hammes, Intelligent Waves’ Chief Strategy Officer, stated, “We are honored and excited to receive this recognition for Phantom, a solution developed to protect our nation’s defense and critical infrastructure.”

“Innovation is driving our society,” said Maria Jimenez, chief nominations officer of the Business Intelligence Group. “We are thrilled to be honoring Intelligent Waves as they are leading by example and improving the lives of so many.”
