Many organizations are still relying on defensive cybersecurity approaches such as perimeter-based firewalls and endpoint based anti-virus software to prevent attacks including ransomware. Unfortunately, these approaches are ineffective at preventing the attacks we see today. BlackFog is disrupting the cybersecurity market with its Anti Data Exfiltration (ADX) technology, a category created in 2021 and pioneered by us. BlackFog prevents and detects ransomware, data breaches, insider threats, ransomware, spyware, malware, phishing, unauthorized data collection and profiling. Using behavioural analysis and data exfiltration technology to stop attacks, BlackFog targets threat vectors when they try to replicate, activate, communicate or exfiltrate data. By neutralizing the attack at multiple points of its lifecycle, it cannot move laterally within the organization.
By looking at the problem in a new way by making the assumption that a hacker who is intent on infiltrating a device or network will eventually get in, BlackFog is able to prevent them from getting out! No exfiltration of data equals no data loss, no data breach, no successful cyberattack and no ransom or extortion.

In early 2022 BlackFog launched its Virtual CISO (vCISO) solution in response to market need for a solution to help small to medium sized businesses who lacked the budget to hire a full time CISO. Designed to provides the expertise organizations need without the hassle and expense of recruiting their own fulltime CISO, the BlackFog vCISO team is made up of ex law enforcement professionals with deep cybersecurity and forensics knowledge. The solutions provide access to BlackFog’s threat intelligence experts, 24/7 protection from cyberattacks, including ransomware, a customer branded console managed by our experts and detailed custom reporting for compliance and auditing purposes.

100% of BlackFog customers have not experienced any unauthorized data exfiltration, and in the past 12 months we’ve successfully detected and prevented 10’s of thousands of ransomware attacks for our customers globally.
