We use the holographic light front wavefunction for the $\phi$ meson obtained from AdS/QCD, in conjunction with the Color Glass Condensate dipole cross-section whose parameters are fitted to the most recent precise combined HERA data on inclusive Deep Inelastic Scattering, to compute the rate for diffractive $\phi$ electro-production. Our predictions are in good agreement with the available data collected at the HERA collider.
