BALTIMORE, MD (PRWEB) June 07, 2016
ZeroFOX, the innovator of social media security, won three awards in this year’s Cybersecurity Excellence Awards, which honor companies and individuals that demonstrate excellence, innovation and leadership in information security. ZeroFOX won Fastest Growing Company, Best Social Media Security Solution and Recruiter of the Year for Dave Stromberg.
The Cybersecurity Excellence Awards are produced in partnership with the 300,000-member Information Security Community on LinkedIn, and recognize the world’s best cybersecurity products, organizations and individuals.
The ZeroFOX team has pioneered a cloud-based platform to protect the modern organization from social media risks. The ZeroFOX Platform continuously monitors across social media — LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and more — for security risks and business threats targeting employees, customers and organizations. Using intelligent data collection with an automated scriptable analysis engine, the ZeroFOX platform automatically identifies and remediates impersonator accounts, phishing attacks, fraud, customer scams, exposed PII and more.
“The Cybersecurity Excellence Awards are truly representative of the security industry, nominated and voted on by the biggest group of InfoSec professionals anywhere online,” said James C. Foster, ZeroFOX CEO. “It is an immense honor to win these awards considering they are decided by our peers, not a committee or panel. Knowing that our achievements as a company are recognized by the people we admire and respect the most is a strong validation for the challenges ZeroFOX is tackling. We look forward to continuing to innovate and conquer challenging problems like these that deliver high value solutions to our customers.”
“Congratulations to ZeroFOX for being recognized as the winner in the Fastest Growing Company category of the 2016 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards,” said Holger Schulze, founder of the Information Security Community on LinkedIn. “With over 430 entries, the awards are highly competitive and our winners reflect the very best in product innovation and excellence in the cybersecurity space.”
Since the beginning of 2014, ZeroFOX has enjoyed a 500% employee growth. This rapid growth was facilitated by ZeroFOX recruiter Dave Stromberg, who was instrumental in enabling the organization to expand at such an aggressive rate. As such, Stromberg was awarded Cyber Security Excellence Award of Recruiter of the Year for his efforts. Driven in part by a recent $27M round of funding, ZeroFOX’s workforce now exceeds 130 employees.
