Smarter Together: ZeroFox Acquires Cyveillance to Accelerate Digital Risk Protection Leadership
3 minute read

2020 has changed business dynamics, creating an increasing reliance on digital platforms to reach customers and deliver services. This shift to digital-first has left IT and InfoSec teams grappling with a new public attack surface that is mostly ungoverned and unprotected by tools in their tech stack. Accelerated digital transformation means organizations are racing to deliver new digital experiences, adopting new platforms without the standard vetting with little to no visibility into the potential threats these platforms pose. Security teams with limited staff, resources and time are challenged to keep pace and retain control - let's say: security teams could use a little help. 

The speed and scale at which digital threats occur requires an innovative and comprehensive approach. Manual, human-driven detection and analysis will not be enough. Automated monitoring alone will be insufficient. What security teams need is the integration of three critical capabilities: visibility across a vast public data set, AI-powered technology to detect and disrupt complex threats at scale, and human intelligence to perform expert analysis and response tailored to needs.
