Baltimore, MD, July 30, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- ZeroFOX, The Social Risk Management Company™, announced today it has been recognized as one of 2014’s hottest emerging technology vendors by CRN, the top news source for solution providers and the IT channel. The annual Emerging Vendors list identifies up-and-coming technology vendors that have introduced innovative new products, creating opportunities for channel partners in North America to create high-margin, cutting-edge solutions for their 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 businesses 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.
The ZeroFOX channel program is partner-first and designed to provide social risk management and compliance solutions to enterprise organizations in strategic markets. These markets utilize social media in the regular course of business and understand the chaotic nature of the uncontrolled and unregulated social media space. An important focus within these strategic markets are government customers looking for solutions to protect the United States, her allies, and citizens from cyber threats and attacks through social networks. The program helps increase access to their cutting-edge, market leading platform while simultaneously enabling customers to optimally protect and grow their revenue streams. The program includes such partners as Blackwood and Associates (BAI), International Systems Marketing (ISM), MTN Government, Compsec, Dunbar Cybersecurity, Axon Global Services, and The Newberry Group.
“Solution providers are always on the hunt for the next big technology trend so that they can bring new solutions to their customers before they even know they need them. These vendors are on the forefront of IT innovation and are offering products and services that channel partners can use to stay ahead of the competition,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company, publisher of CRN. “We congratulate 2014’s Emerging Vendors for creating the next wave of technology that will drive the IT industry forward and for opening the door to new, unique solutions from the IT channel.”
“ZeroFOX is honored to be recognized by CRN as one of its 'Coolest' Emerging Vendors for 2014. Not only does this underscore the momentum that ZeroFOX is making in the information security marketplace, it sheds light on the fact that businesses and organizations are starting to pay attention to the risks and vulnerabilities generated by social media usage,” said Evan Blair, ZeroFOX COO. “Social media needs to be looked at as a new endpoint, managed and secured as such. Organizations using social media in a public-facing fashion are creating unregulated business assets that need to be considered part of a potential attack surface. Given the popularity of social media, this issue is becoming increasingly complex and widespread in today’s enterprise environment.”
Companies included in CRN’s 2014 Emerging Vendors list were founded in 2008 or later and are actively working with channel partners in North America. The list, along with information about each vendor, will be published in CRN’s August 2014 issue and will also be available online at www.crn.com.
