Baltimore, MD. — May 14, 2015 — ZeroFOX, the leader in Social Media Cyber Security, was awarded the Tech Council of Maryland’s Emerging Firm of the Year at the 27th Annual Industry Awards Celebration dinner in Bethesda, MD. The award honors an innovative Maryland business with strong strategic direction and clear differentiators, disruptive technology, a demonstrated ability to attract resources and financial growth.

ZeroFOX has established the social media cyber security market by developing cyber security’s first social media attack detection platform, ZeroFOX Enterprise.

ZeroFOX’s offerings also include a global social media threat stream, ZeroFOX Security Intelligence, and expert services.

As security challenges evolve, we hope Maryland companies continue to push the boundaries of the cyber security industry.”
