James C. Foster, CEO of ZeroFox

The dark web and criminal underground are critical requirements of modern threat intelligence programs, and the agitators are moving quickly. Attacks and breaches are occurring at an all-time high, and organizations need a clear view of the underground economy, how bots may be attacking them or if their credentials, credit cards, personally identifiable information (PII), and other information could be traded there, as well as understanding emerging tactics, exploits and vulnerabilities to stay ahead. This new capability increases the scale and comprehensiveness of our dark web intelligence capabilities to our customers, protecting their organization, people, customers, and information.

James C. Foster, CEO of ZeroFox

The combined ZeroFox and Vigilante platform offer powerful dark web intelligence in the form of breach intelligence & response, data delivery, botnet exposure monitoring, and operative intelligence.

We are proud to be a part of ZeroFox and bring our best-in-class capabilities to a broader set of customers. The new combination is the most robust Dark Web offering on the market.
