WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ZeroFox, a global external threat intelligence and protection provider, today announced a global strategic partnership with Mandiant, a part of FireEye Inc., the intelligence-led security company, to offer ZeroFox’s world-class capabilities for disrupting malicious activity on social media and digital channels, within the Mandiant Advantage SaaS platform, including the disabling of malicious or offensive content and fake accounts and sites.
As the threats facing organizations online continue to increase, security teams must be enabled to disrupt attacks at the source. ZeroFox reported a 140% increase in domain-based attacks and a 300% increase in social media attacks since the pandemic’s shift to a fully remote world. Over the past 12 months, ZeroFox has seen a dramatic increase in requests for malicious content takedowns and an over 60% increase in successful disruption actions to address the rise in social media impersonations, spoofed domains, phishing, fraud, and ransomware.
Through this partnership, ZeroFox’s disruption and malicious content takedown capabilities will be available within the Mandiant Advantage platform. Subscribers to the Mandiant Advantage Digital Threat Monitoring service can review security incidents on the Mandiant Advantage dashboard and immediately initiate action by the ZeroFox global disruption team to tackle domain and social media-based attacks.
