Baltimore, MD September 16, 2014 – ZeroFox, The Social Risk Management Company, won Gold in the Best Risk Management Solution category of the 2014 Golden Bridge Awards for the ZeroFox platform, an Enterprise Social Risk Management suite that enables organizations to identify, manage and mitigate information security risk introduced through social media. The ZeroFox team also took home a Bronze Winner award in the Social Media, Networking or Collaboration Innovations category, recognizing the company’s innovation and leadership in preventing cyber-harm, compliance problems and cases of fraud and abuse due to social media usage in the enterprise. The coveted Golden Bridge Awards honor the world’s best in a host of fields, including, products and services, innovations, and executives and management teams.
ZeroFox enables organizations to mitigate cyber attacks targeting their employees, customers and organization that leverage social media. Because social media platforms exist outside the enterprise and at a scale that dwarfs all other forms of digital communication, they have emerged as one of the largest risk vectors to enterprise organizations. Organizations that take social media risks seriously are better equipped to protect against fraud, social impersonations, phishing and malware, undue exposure and compromise, wasted time and money in crisis control, and other reputation or legal harm. With a proper risk management strategy, organizations can effectively leverage the benefits of social media while mitigating cyber harm.
“We’re thrilled to be named a Gold Winner in this year’s Golden Bridge Awards and to be recognized among so many esteemed colleagues and peers in the tech industry,” said James C. Foster, ZeroFox CEO. “For an emerging company like ours to be recognized as a global leader in the risk management space and as an innovator in the social media market shows that we are addressing an increasingly critical issue in today’s marketplace. These awards are a testament to ZeroFox’s commitment to protecting businesses in today’s social media-driven digital business environment.”
