ZeroFOX Expands Enterprise Security Product Suite with Employee and Executive & VIP Protection Solutions
Protect employees’ personal and business social media accounts from targeted attacks, account hijacking and enterprise credential loss
Safeguard high-value personnel from targeted impersonations, cyberattacks and reputational damage
BALTIMORE, MD – September 28, 2017 – ZeroFOX, the innovator of social media and digital security, today unveiled ZeroFOX Employee Protection and Executive & VIP Protection, the latest offerings under its Enterprise Product Suite. By protecting individual employees from falling victim to security threats on social media, ZeroFOX Employee Protection empowers enterprise personnel to prevent, detect and respond to potential threats across their entire organization without the need for cumbersome, administrative controls. ZeroFOX Executive & VIP Protection is designed to safeguard high-value employees from targeted threats such as impersonation, fraud, scams, physical threats and reputation damage.
For all employees and organizations, social media is increasingly becoming one of the top cyberattack vectors, requiring dedicated attention and protection. Key “power user” employees use social media as a mission critical tool of their job – such as marketing, sales, recruiting and HR – but lack the security background and expertise to protect themselves from the growing threat landscape. Moreover, executives and VIPs are exposed to attack, are increasingly easy to identify on social media and represent high-value targets for cyber criminals. As social and digital attacks continue to evolve, increased protection across the workforce – from the CFO to the summer intern – is required to keep the organization safe.
“ZeroFOX continues to innovate and lead the industry in our mission of protecting people and organizations from the enterprise risks introduced by social media and digital platforms,” said James C. Foster, CEO and co-founder, ZeroFOX. “Social media is now embedded in the business technology stack, and the industry demands additional coverage to protect all employees from targeted attacks. Like email and BYOD before it, organizations need a complete end-to-end solution to protect their workforce from the security and business risks introduced by social media. By extending our world-class protection to every employee, organizations can now enjoy comprehensive social media coverage across their workforce.”
With ZeroFOX Employee Protection, individual user accounts will be protected from phishing attacks, account takeovers, malware, enterprise compliance violations and credential theft, all while providing critical visibility to centralized information security teams. ZeroFOX Executive & VIP Protection enables corporate security and executive protection teams to extended visibility and situational awareness to safeguard their high-value personnel, including public figures, talent, celebrities and athletes. This addition to the ZeroFOX Enterprise Product Suite comes at a critical time when the social accounts of high-profile individuals are constantly at risk of hijacking and takeover, leading to defamation, embarrassment and lost business. Users of both solutions benefit from the world-class ZeroFOX Alpha Team, who provides expert advice and notifications around emerging global security threats, as well as recommendations to continuously educate users on security best practices.
