ZeroFox Renews and Expands 8-Figure Contract with Critical U.S. Federal Agency
Extended partnership ensures essential threat intelligence and protection across the entire external attack surface
WASHINGTON, Oct. 24, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ZeroFox, a leading provider of external cybersecurity, is proud to announce its continued partnership with a strategic U.S. federal agency focused on cybersecurity. This renewal marks the 9th continuous year of ZeroFox supporting critical cyber threat intelligence activities. The partnership originated between the agency and LookingGlass Cyber Solutions, which ZeroFox acquired in April earlier this year.
This program supports thousands of users across more than 200 departments and agencies across federal, state, and local governments to provide cyber threat intelligence, attack surface Intelligence, and advanced security operations support. ZeroFox products are integrated into core operational systems, and are often the primary means of consuming Automated Indicator Sharing (AIS), required by all federal agencies.
“We’re proud to play a part in the federal government’s critical cybersecurity initiatives and support their mission to keep organizations safe with our threat intelligence and adversary disruption capabilities,” said James C. Foster, Chairman and CEO of ZeroFox. “This expansion further establishes ZeroFox as a trusted partner of federal agencies and demonstrates continued success in growing our large public sector and enterprise customer base.”
ZeroFox provides government organizations with critical visibility, deep intelligence, and automated protection necessary to identify and address threats outside the perimeter. Using a global data collection apparatus, artificial intelligence-based analysis, and automated remediation, ZeroFox products reduce risk, disrupt and dismantle attackers' infrastructure, and protect organizations against targeted nation-state-sponsored cyberattacks.
“The external attack surface for government agencies is ever-expanding with the proliferation of cloud- and internet-based applications, making it essential to have a complete picture of each agency’s digital risk,” said Dan Smith, Vice President of Federal at ZeroFox. “At ZeroFox, we strive to provide all of our federal customers with the intelligence they need to make informed decisions about how to best secure our nation and its people from external cyber threats. This renewal underscores that commitment – we’re proud to be a trusted partner of the federal government.”
