Social Media Security Protection Software

As organizations increasingly rely on social media to grow their brands, attackers leverage the inherent trust and public nature of these platforms to conduct attacks. Protecting brands, executives, employees, and consumers on social media is critical for modern business success.

Social Media Security Protection Software

What is Social Media Security?

The ubiquitous access, global scale and ever-changing dynamics of social media platforms make them inherently attractive targets for threat actors. Social media security is the process by which organizations protect the integrity of their brand and executives’ presence on Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, Twitter, and LinkedIn; and across dozens of emerging online communities where discussions are had, information is gathered, stories are shared and decisions are made.

Why is Social Media Security important?

According to the FBI, social media impersonations have cost businesses worldwide over $5.3 billion. ZeroFox’s sweeping approach to social media security combines AI-driven technology with robust managed services and in-house takedown capabilities. We quickly identify and stop sophisticated impersonations of brands and VIPs, spear-phishing, account takeovers, data leaks, doxxing, harassment and other illegal activity that frequently lead to fraud, scams and cyberattacks.

Integrated social media security and protection across the public attack surface.

Social media is part of a larger ecosystem of publicly available platforms that make up a new attack surface for threat actors to leverage. In order to combat the threats on social media and elsewhere on the web, security teams need integrated external cybersecurity. Comprehensive coverage across social media, surface, deep and dark web ensures that threats are identified and addressed wherever they show up on the public attack surface.

Social media adoption brings new risks

Every industry faces a unique set of risks on social media, many of which have put organizations in the press or at the center of controversy. The rise of social media has introduced a new security paradigm, one that puts users – employees, customers, and partners along with brands themselves – squarely in the attacker’s crosshairs. Social media has become the new cyber battleground, presenting one of the largest, most dynamic risks to organizational security in decades.

Scale of social media
The public nature of social media makes it widely accessible to everyday users and attackers alike. The sheer volume of content makes it difficult for security teams to overcome risks manually.
Social media was designed for connecting and sharing. Once an attacker has entered one of their target’s trusted social circles, it is much easier to entice the target to click a malicious link or file.
Blind spots for security teams
Traditional security tools do not offer visibility into public platforms like social media, leaving security teams blind to potential threats targeting their brand, employees, executives and customers.
