ZeroFOX secures “differentiated” ratings for “Vision and Execution” and “Digital Risk Protection Breadth and Depth” criteria

BALTIMORE, MD, July 17, 2018 – ZeroFOX, the social media and digital security category leader, today announced that Forrester Research, Inc. named it a “Leader” in its Forrester New Wave™: Digital Risk Protection, Q3 2018 report. According to the report, “ZeroFOX leads the pack in social media protection and digital risk analytics. Its coverage of social channels and intelligence stands out because of its ability to protect individual social accounts and analyze unique behavioral risk indicators.” ¹

Forrester’s research assessed vendors on a variety of criteria that rank capabilities across multiple categories, with a rating of “differentiated” being the highest. ZeroFOX received the “differentiated” ranking within the following criteria:

  • Social and mobile risk protection;
  • Digital risk analysis and review;
  • Dashboard and UI;
  • Digital Risk Protection breadth and depth;
  • Vision and execution;
  • Global reach and analyst support;
  • Thought leadership and strategic partnerships.

“We believe being recognized as a Leader in the Forrester New Wave is continued validation of ZeroFOX’s leadership position in the Social Media Protection and DRP market,” said James C. Foster, Chief Executive Officer, ZeroFOX. “Customers are tired of alerts, false positives and the constant barrage of fire drills. ZeroFOX is the only firm that provides truly actionable intelligence, best-in-class risk analytics and fully automated remediation. Our agility, coupled with market-leading strategic vision, positions us to best serve the needs of our customers over the long term – helping them map, monitor and mitigate digital risk as the only end-to-end DRP solution.”

In its assessment, Forrester states, “ZeroFOX is best for those that want actionable intelligence and rapid remediation … Customers praise ZeroFOX for its platform’s flexibility and ease of use, the ability to take immediate remediation action … and its brand risk analytics.” ¹

You simply don’t get this level of service from other vendors.”
