ZeroFox Enterprise Recognized for Ability to Automate Identification of Malicious Actors on Social Media
Baltimore, MD. – February 01, 2015 – ZeroFox, The Social Risk Management Company, was selected as the top Security Trailblazer in the 2014 Tech Trailblazers Awards. This award recognizes the company’s technological and commercial innovation and entrepreneurship excellence. ZeroFox‘s social risk management platform, ZeroFox Enterprise identifies both behavioral and technical threat indicators across social media channels to provide users with proactive alerts and integrated intelligence on targeted social media cyber attacks. Underscoring its innovation and leadership in the cyber marketplace, the company’s approach to combating the use of social media to infiltrate and compromise organizations is unparalleled by any others in the security industry.
“Our selection for Security Trailblazer validates how ZeroFox is uniquely positioned to lead the social risk management market. No other company is as proactive, actionable and comprehensive in the social space as we are,” said James Foster, CEO. “Our technology is the first of its kind, disrupting both the social media marketing tools space and the cybersecurity industry. This award is a testament to our team’s hard work and ingenuity, as we deliver future-ready solutions that combat social threats in the enterprise.”
Social media has become the most prolific mode of communication in human history – nearly 75 percent of Internet-connected people are active on social totaling over 2.5 billion accounts between Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn alone. This growing threat vector requires a new breed of cyber security solution and a company with a unique vision. ZeroFox Enterprise’s Attack Detection System (ADS) delivers both global and organizational specific intelligence, ranging from technical threat indicators to context-rich alerts and analysis. By analyzing social media data from the entities that matter most to an organization and providing alerts on malicious links, inappropriate or sensitive content, suspicious account activity and impersonator profiles, ZeroFox Enterprise empowers organizations to visualize and take action on social media-based threats.

We were greatly impressed by the ingenuity and innovation shown in the entries. Winners of this year’s Tech Trailblazers Awards are some of the most exciting enterprise tech startups making an impact in the business world today,” said Rose Ross, Chief Trailblazer. “ZeroFox’s approach to social risk management positions them in a very unique market niche that brings immense value to organizations who have to battle with the risks of doing business in a digital social media ecosystem.
