OffComm News - - SECURITY -

MTN Govern­ment ( MTNGOV), a sub­sidiary of MTN Com­mu­ni­ca­tions and provider of satel­lite com­mu­ni­ca­tions, cy­ber se­cu­rity and in­te­grated in­tel­li­gence, sur­veil­lance, and re­con­nais­sance serv­ing U. S. DoD and civil­ian agencies world­wide,

has un­veiled the in­dus­try’s first ‘ So­cial Me­dia Threat In­tel­li­gence’ man­aged ser­vice. It is a pre­dic­tive cy­ber so­lu­tion that en­ables U. S. govern­ment agencies us­ing so­cial net­work­ing, mo­bile de­vices and dis­trib­uted work­forces to pro­tect against the on­slaught of cy­ber threats. Specif­i­cally, it iden­ti­fies and analy­ses 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, a so­cial risk and cy­ber threat in­tel­li­gence so­lu­tions com­pany.

“MTNGOV is part­ner­ing with ZeroFOX and other cy­ber se­cu­rity ex­perts to deliver in­no­va­tive new pre­dic­tive an­a­lyt­ics to our U. S. govern­ment

cus­tomers,” said Peg Grayson, pres­i­dent of

MTNGOV.

“Our cus­tomers are re­al­is­ing tra­di­tional cy­ber se­cu­rity 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.”
