ZeroFOX CEO, James Foster, featured in USA News & World Report – Working on cybersecurity with the Department of Defense was key for James Foster, CEO of ZeroFOX, in starting to develop security solutions as an entrepreneur. Hackers are often a step or two ahead of business security software, so former government engineers and analysts are designing new real-time programs to guard networks, instead of antivirus software that needs to be updated, Foster explains.
“There is so much competition for cybersecurity companies compared with five years ago,” Foster says. “You will see a lot of smaller companies fade, but there will be consistent liquidity and a handful of new players will rise. There is a demand for new services, and right now there is no global brand for cybersecurity.”
