ZeroFOX signs CSSA as sole SA distributor
Cyber security solutions distributor CSSA has won the sole local distribution rights to ZeroFOX, a provider of digital risk protection services. The deal covers ZeroFOX’s portfolio of digital risk protection solutions that cover brand protection, executive protection and domain protection.
Headquartered in Maryland, US, ZeroFOX provides cloud-based software-as-a-service cyber security solutions that, according to the company, combine advanced analytics with deep threat intelligence, human expertise, and streamlined remediation and takedown capabilities.
“ZeroFOX addresses a growing problem – protecting the enterprise’s public attack surface,” says Gabe Goldhirsh, VP MEA, ZeroFOX. “In the current open, digital-first business world, attackers have access to customers, employees and stakeholders, so it is critical to have a solution that can protect this digital footprint outside of traditional boundaries and security controls.”
The challenge facing most organisations today, he says, is that the threat surface is expanding along with changing working models introduced by digital transformation and the global pandemic. It requires a significantly different approach to the traditional defence-in-depth security stack with highly capable analytic scale and automation.
Security platforms have to leverage the capabilities of cloud SaaS, managed services, artificial intelligence, machine learning and automation to fully monitor and protect the business.
According to him, local markets are rapidly adopting mobile and cloud-based solutions that present less secure attack avenues for attackers. “It’s become essential that companies across Africa have the right tools at hand that allow them to remain protected, compliant and capable of operating with peace of mind.”
Goldhirsh says ZeroFOX partners with its customers, using a managed service approach that encompasses onboarding, training, and ongoing support.
