Congratulations are in order as ZeroFOX’s very own CEO, James C. Foster, was just named winner of the 2020 Entrepreneur of the Year Mid-Atlantic Award! The Entrepreneur Of The Year Awards program is one of the preeminent competitive awards for entrepreneurs and leaders of high-growth companies. The award recognizes those entrepreneurial leaders who are excelling in overcoming adversity; financial performance; societal impact and commitment to building a values-based company; innovation; and talent management. Foster was selected by an independent panel of judges. The award was announced through the program’s first-ever virtual awards gala, hosted by Deborah Norville, anchor of Inside Edition, on October 8.
ZeroFOX was founded in 2013 with the unique mission of protecting organizations, their critical digital assets and data, against threats on the public attack surface, from social media, surface, deep and dark web. With the shift to remote work and digital-first business, ZeroFOX has adapted to meet evolving security challenges. To help with that mission, ZeroFOX announced the acquisition of Cyveillance, pioneer in open-source threat intelligence, joining ZeroFOX’s AI-powered platform and Cyveillance’s expert threat analysts and data lake. Foster’s recognition as an EY Entrepreneur of the Year Mid-Atlantic Award Winner is a testament to ZeroFOX’s continued innovation and growth.
“Since our founding, ZeroFOX has been dedicated to delivering best-in-class protection technology and services to our customers and cultivating a meaningful, mission-driven culture focused on innovation and growth,” Foster, CEO of ZeroFOX. “I am honored to join this community of leaders dedicated to advancing innovative, impactful organizations.”
Since 1986, EY US has honored entrepreneurs whose ingenuity, spirit of innovation and tenacity have driven their companies’ success, transformed their industries and made a positive impact on their communities. Foster will go on to become a lifetime member of the esteemed multi-industry community of award winners, with exclusive, ongoing access to the experience, insight and wisdom of fellow alumni and other ecosystem members in over 60 countries — all supported by vast EY resources.
As a Mid-Atlantic regional award winner, Foster is now eligible for consideration for the Entrepreneur Of The Year 2020 National Awards. Award winners in several national categories, as well as the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Overall Award winner, will be announced Thursday, November 19, during a virtual awards gala. The awards are the culminating event of this year’s virtual Strategic Growth Forum®, the nation’s most prestigious gathering of high-growth, market-leading companies. The Entrepreneur Of The Year National Overall Award winner will then move on to compete for the EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year™ Award in June 2021.
Congratulations again to all winners!
