ZeroFox

Baltimore-based ZeroFox provides a platform that monitors the Internet for social threats that could impact businesses. The platform attempts to identify active and ongoing cyberattacks targeting the company, its employees and end users taking place through social media. It can spot and prevent potential social engineering attacks designed to impersonate key executives within an organization. When it detects suspicious activity, it provides an email alert and gives security teams the ability to address the issue through the platform. Formerly called Riskive, the firm received $2.2 million in funding in 2013. Company Founder and CEO James C. Foster was previously CEO of Ciphent, a software security assessment firm that was acquired by Accuvant in 2010.
