ZoneFox appoints Aspectus as its UK communications agency
London, 10th April, 2017 – Aspectus, the specialist communications agency for the financial services, energy, technology and engineering sectors, has been appointed by Edinburgh-based cyber security start up ZoneFox to deliver its UK communications programme.
Aspectus was appointed as the company’s UK communications agency after a successful project to launch its machine learning platform, ZoneFox Augmented Intelligence (AI). Alongside a traditional PR programme, Aspectus will also work with ZoneFox to deliver a fully integrated search and PPC programme.
Founded by Dr Jamie Graves, ZoneFox specialises in providing world-class security systems that effectively combat the growing business issue of insider threats. Graves spun ZoneFox out of Napier University, where he was studying for his PhD, in 2010. Over the last seven years the company has grown to 22 people and in February of this year closed a £3.6M round of investment – the largest book to be closed by Archangels, one of the longest standing VC syndicates in Europe.
Lynsey Jenkins, Marketing Director, commented: “Aspectus is proactive, creative and has an innate understanding of the security market. Acting as our brand ambassador and delivering a constant source of press opportunities, Aspectus will massively help ZoneFox elevate our brand in a very noisy market and engage with our audiences around our User Behaviour Analytics (UBA) platform, technical expertise and USPs.”
Sophie Hodgson, Head of Technology, Aspectus added: “ZoneFox is such a fast paced, dynamic and exciting company. We’re thrilled to be working with them and have already seen some great results. Moving forward we want to utilise our expertise and relationships in order to establish the company as the authority on User Behaviour Analytics and the insider threat, by promoting their award winning technology and Jamie and the team’s expertise across multiple channels.”
