In 3 bullets, summarize why this company is different from the competition and deserves recognition:

- BlackFog is helping organizations globally to finally win the fight against ransomware. When a company uses BlackFog to secure their data, we ensure that no unauthorized data leaves any device – it doesn’t matter where employees are working or on what device, or how an attacker finds their way in.

- BlackFog is the only on-device data privacy solution in the market. By blocking data exfiltration BlackFog successfully prevents data breaches, insider threats, ransomware, spyware, malware, phishing, unauthorized data collection and profiling.

- BlackFog is a market disruptor making major inroads in the industry, as evidenced by a recent successful partnership with Evolve MGA, the largest cyber insurance specialist company in the United States and a partnership with a large South African telco set to be announced this quarter.

Brief Overview

Imagine if SolarWinds and the Exchange attacks had been detected before they had the chance to cause damage. Hackers intent on infiltrating a device or network will eventually get in. The challenge is preventing the attack in the first place and preventing data from being exfiltrated from the device.

Historically, organizations have relied on defensive approaches such as perimeter-based firewalls and antivirus software to prevent cyberattacks. But despite the best efforts of IT departments, around 80% of cyberattacks bypass current cybersecurity systems.

Defensive approaches are ineffective at preventing today’s sophisticated cyberattacks. BlackFog is disrupting the cybersecurity market with its on-device data exfiltration technology which detects and prevents modern day cyberattacks including ransomware. BlackFog has prevented attacks for some of the top organizations in the world such as the Girl Scouts of America, Bergquist, Electrolux and Yamaha.

Our approach uses 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. Utilizing this innovative approach, BlackFog was one of the few companies that detected the SolarWinds and Exchange attacks.
