CORRECTING and REPLACING Zingbox Enhances the Security of IoT Devices as Part of Microsoft Active Protections Program

April 5, 2019

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr 5, 2019--Please replace the release dated April 4, 2019 with the following corrected version due to changes to the fourth paragraph.

The corrected release reads:

ZINGBOX ENHANCES THE SECURITY OF IOT DEVICES AS PART OF MICROSOFT ACTIVE PROTECTIONS PROGRAM

Zingbox, provider of the most widely deployed Internet of Things (IoT) security and analytics platform, is now part of the Microsoft Active Protections Program (MAPP). Participation in MAPP is an important part of Zingbox’s continuing efforts to provide real-time proactive security for IoT devices.

MAPP is a program through which security vendors identify vulnerabilities in Microsoft software, pooling research to enhance the overall security of devices leveraging Microsoft software. The program is an arm of the Microsoft Security Response Center (MSRC), a security risk analysis and management center that is on the front line of security response at Microsoft. MSRC releases Microsoft’s monthly security update guide. In addition to identifying new vulnerabilities, as part of MAPP Zingbox receives early access to the center’s security information.

“Zingbox has a long history of collaboration with Microsoft, sharing our research findings to improve the security of IoT devices,” said Xu Zou, co-founder and CEO of Zingbox. “Collaboration enabled by programs such as MAPP is a critical component of IoT security, which requires analysis of all components, including the device software and underlying operating system. We are proud to be the first IoT security vendor to be part of this program and look forward to further expanding our relationship with Microsoft as a member of MAPP.”

Microsoft shares Zingbox’s commitment to delivering quality, protection and security to customers. Its work to expand the MAPP ecosystem by adding new members such as Zingbox is evidence of that dedication. “Protecting customers from harm requires engineering excellence as well as robust partnerships with defenders across the industry,” said Eric Doerr, General Manager of Microsoft Security Response Center. “By sharing actionable security information with trusted partners like Zingbox we ensure customers have effortless access to secure solutions.”
