Publisher’s Spotlight: ZeroFox: Protecting You Beyond Your Perimeter

Today’s cyber attackers are looking beyond network systems and devices to target organizations through digital platforms outside your perimeter. It’s time to detect, expose, and disrupt these external threats to your brands, domains and executives before attacks become breaches.  Enter ZeroFox.

With a primary focus on helping businesses and individuals safeguard their online presence and reputation, ZeroFox is a leading external cybersecurity company that provides full-spectrum external threat intelligence, protection and response solutions to protect organizations from threats related to digital risks and attacks that occur on digital platforms, the dark web, and the broader internet landscape.

ZeroFox’s 2023 Brand Protection Report:

  • 35% increase in verified alerts for brand threats related to fraud, scams, and piracy quarter-over-quarter across the ZeroFox customer base, and a nearly 20% increase in brand-related impersonations.
  • 26% increase in fraudulent activity tied to brands observed in this quarter; more specifically, fraudulent job postings identified rose by over 50%.
  • Nearly 20% increase in spoofed domains increased in the second quarter of 2023 versus the first quarter, with just over one-third tied to phishing campaigns.
  • 22% increase in key personnel and corporate social media impersonation accounts with a biography, name and image to legitimize these profiles; those that used a biography with a name only increased 35%.

ZeroFox’s platform utilizes diverse data sources and advanced artificial intelligence driven analysis to monitor and mitigate risks related to social media impersonation, account hijacking, phishing, brand impersonation, fraud, compromised credentials, and other malicious activities.

“With so many advancements in technology, the only way to truly protect your organization proactively is by focusing outside the perimeter. In fact, our team of cybersecurity researchers reported a 164% increase in verified threats against brands between the first and second quarters of 2023. This alarming increase proves that monitoring and securing the ever-evolving digital landscape is more important now than before. While this can be a daunting task, especially as the threats facing organizations have grown more complex as technology continues to evolve. Organizations are in dire need of taking the right steps to proactively protect themselves against domain and social media-based threats to keep customer trust and maintain a positive brand reputation,” said AJ Nash, VP & Distinguished Fellow of Intelligence at ZeroFox.

“Over the years I think there’s been hundreds – if not thousands – of impersonations that have been taken down to protect the online Nokia brand experience. And, for me, that’s the biggest impact of ZeroFox. Our followers know that the Nokia channels they engage with can be trusted, verified, and they are brand compliant.” said Päivi Kalske, Head of Corporate Social Media at Nokia, “ZeroFox has really made an impact by providing real-time alerts for critical impersonations, allowing us to take fast action and process takedowns more effectively and efficiently. ZeroFox is taking care of us in the background so we can then focus on building our social media and brand presence.”
