BALTIMORE, MD – June 11, 2014 – ZeroFox, The Social Risk Management Company™, today announced the appointment of two new vice presidents, Pano Paschaloudis and Stephen Weis, to augment the company’s leadership team and further develop and execute its comprehensive sales vision to foster high volume revenue and dynamic sales growth. Paschaloudis, Vice President of Global Enterprise Accounts, is an international cyber security sales leader with more than a decade of experience in the technology industry. Weis, Vice President of Public Sector Sales, comes to ZeroFox with 25 years of success in software and information security sales and services for enterprise customers.

ZeroFox enables organizations to protect and grow their brand leveraging the benefits of social media while being mindful and diligent of its risks to reputation, human capital and enterprise security. Social media platforms are widely adopted communications platforms that represent one of the largest risks to business security and are completely invisible to management and security teams. These risks cannot be simply avoided, locked down, blocked or throttled. Organizations that take this threat seriously and implement a comprehensive risk strategy put their organizations in a position to protect their brand against fraud, social impersonations, blackmail, undue exposure and compromise, and other reputation or legal harm.
“ZeroFox has an incredible amount of momentum in today’s marketplace. We are constantly looking for new ways to help organizations of all shapes and sizes deal with the risks, dangers and pitfalls of social media in the enterprise while educating our customers about how to use their social assets in a way that aligns with their business and security goals,” said James C. Foster, ZeroFox CEO. “By bringing Pano and Steve on board to lead our sales teams by leveraging their talents and strategic insights, ZeroFox will be able to help an increasing number of businesses and organizations in these markets manage and mitigate the risks of business in social ecosystems.”
Both new vice presidents bring a wealth of sales experience and years of success to the ZeroFox team.

Prior to joining ZeroFox, he led sales at McAfee, now Intel Security, as its top performer from 2005-2013. He was named the Global Sales person of the year in 2008 and 2011 and achieved more than 200% growth per year for the business in 2008, 2011 and 2013.
