Rogers (TSX:RCI,NYSE:RCI) announced a cloud-based solution called “Social Media Security by Rogers” that protects customers’ social media accounts.
As quoted in the press release:
Social Media Security by Rogers includes a set of tools that safeguard a business’ social media profiles. These tools are provided and backed by a strategic relationship with ZeroFOX, a North American leader in monitoring social media and digital channels for security threats and business risks, and include:
Always-on insights: Businesses have access to data and insights around the clock that will identify malicious posts, profiles, content and false accounts. A team of dedicated security risk analysts monitors businesses profiles to provide this data.
Real-time alerts: Customers will receive real-time alerts from a dedicated monitoring team so they can take fast action against security threats including customer scams, piracy, account take-overs and impersonations.
Expedited takedowns: Having established direct relationships with major social networks, content can be taken down in as quickly as a matter of hours, whereas it could take days or weeks for a customer to resolve a cyber attack on their own.
“Social media is without a doubt, a core business application – and securing the business, customer and employee engagement across social media platforms is now a priority for security teams and business owners everywhere,” said James C. Foster, CEO, ZeroFOX. “Through our relationship with Rogers Communications, Canadian businesses can now get the leading social media security solution from ZeroFOX delivered by their trusted communications services provider. The problem ZeroFOX and Rogers is solving is part of an evolving security challenge that modern businesses face and one that is costing companies over $1.2 billion globally.”
