Expansion includes new partnerships to deliver external cybersecurity solutions to Canadian enterprises
WASHINGTON, April 27, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ZeroFox, a leading external cybersecurity provider, today announces new disruption research and expanded partnerships to serve Canadian enterprises. A new partnership with Quick Intelligence will extend critical threat intelligence, digital risk protection and adversary disruption services to Canadian enterprises, building on ZeroFox’s existing Canadian customer base. In the first three months of 2022, ZeroFox executed an over 60% increase in disruption actions including takedowns of impersonations, spoofed domains and malicious content for customers in Canada compared to the previous year, reflected across social media, domains, paste sites and other digital platforms. This partnership news comes on the heels of the announcement of expanded adversary disruption capabilities as well as the company’s announcement of its plan to acquire IDX and become a publicly-traded company via a merger with L&F Acquisition Corp (NYSE: LNFA) under the ticker symbol ZFOX.
“ZeroFox is proud of the work we are doing in Canada to protect enterprises against external cyber attacks across the surface, deep and dark web,” said Brian Costello, Vice President of Partnerships, ZeroFox. “Alongside Quick Intelligence, we will be able to provide our protection, intelligence and adversary disruption capabilities to a greater number of Canadian enterprises.”
In order to address the growing external attack surface for Canadian businesses, ZeroFox and Quick Intelligence will collectively offer a suite of cybersecurity solutions. ZeroFox’s digital risk protection, threat intelligence and adversary disruption solutions add an additional layer of external defenses to the existing Quick Intelligence cyber protection portfolio. To date, Quick Intelligence has focused on helping customers fortify their internal defenses. The collective ZeroFox/Quick Intelligence partnership will extend that focus to protecting assets, data, people and locations outside the corporate network.
“We don’t add logos to our supplier list often, and when we do it’s a big deal. ZeroFox adds a new dimension in cyber protection that our clients desperately need to secure their digital assets,” said John Butler, President and CEO, Quick Intelligence. “We are proud to be a leader in this space and to bring ZeroFox to our growing family of clients.”
In the first three months of this year compared to the same time last year, ZeroFox has seen a substantial increase in takedowns across industries in Canada, with an unparalleled over 400% increase in takedowns for Financial Services clients in particular. With the threat of phishing, ransomware, breaches and other cyberattacks expected to increase, it’s more important than ever that Canadian enterprises are prepared with access to the right protection and intelligence solutions. The partnership between Quick Intelligence and ZeroFox supports that mission.
