MTN Government debuts managed service offering threat intelligence for social media
MTN Government (MTNGOV), a supplier of satellite communications, cybersecurity and integrated intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) solutions serving U.S. DoD and civilian agencies worldwide, announced on March 10 the introduction of the industry’s first “Social Media Threat Intelligence” managed service.
This service is a predictive cyber solution that enables U.S. Government agencies that use social networking, mobile devices and distributed workforces to protect against the onslaught of cyber threats. The solution identifies and analyzes malicious actors, threats and targeted attacks against U.S. Government leaders and agencies, and provides proactive, actionable threat analytics and intelligence in advance of any network compromise.
The service uses a patented enterprise-security platform powered by ZeroFOX, of Baltimore, MD, a social risk and cyber threat intelligence solutions company.
“MTNGOV is partnering with ZeroFOX and other cybersecurity experts to deliver innovative new predictive analytics to our U.S. Government customers,” said Peg Grayson, president of MTNGOV. “Our customers are realizing traditional cybersecurity approaches are no longer working and new approaches are needed to detect cyber intrusions threatening our national security, critical infrastructure, state and local governments, and our U.S. Government leaders.”
MTNGOV is an authorized provider of services offered by ZeroFOX. MTNGOV solutions are customizable, scalable and available as a complete end-to-end managed service.
“ZeroFOX is excited to be partnering with MTNGOV to help the U.S. Government address the increasing risk and cyber threats associated with the continued growth of social media,” said Evan Blair, chief operating officer of ZeroFOX. “The attack surface has expanded, extending beyond our physical network borders. Leveraging the ZeroFOX Platform, MTNGOV is providing clients the ability to proactively defend their data, networks and devices from advanced cyber threats with a completely managed service.”
