ZeroFOX Announces Advanced Security for Zoom and Slack
ZeroFOX, the leading provider of public attack surface protection, announced it has extended its artificial intelligence (AI) powered platform to now include advanced cyberattack protection capabilities for business collaboration platforms. The ZeroFOX Enterprise Remote Workforce Protection solution offers advanced threat protection for both Zoom and Slack, cloud-based applications required by organizations in today’s work from home world.
“Continuing a quick pace of innovation and maintaining world-class protection during this pandemic for the benefit of our customers is our priority”
As adoption of these remote work platforms has exploded, emerging threats have developed to capitalize on that adoption. Zoom, in particular, has been the target of many such attacks. The ZeroFOX Alpha Team uncovered thousands of cracked Zoom accounts for sale on a single hacking forum and entire websites dedicated to sharing insecure Zoom call IDs. Although Zoom has recently released updates focused on security and privacy, attackers are still able to easily target organizations and their employees through a variety of attacks that abuse the platform. It is critical to safeguard private information and users that leverage these collaboration platforms to do their jobs on a daily basis.
