We have built a differentiated, unified cyber platform comprising external attack surface management, digital risk protection, and threat intelligence, and I’m extremely proud of all that we have accomplished over the past decade. I am confident ZeroFox will benefit from Haveli’s deep expertise in cybersecurity as we begin our next phase of growth, expand into new markets, and accelerate customer acquisition.”
