One of the sectors to have been earmarked for further growth in the coming years is the cybersecurity sector and for good reason too, considering the growing economic threats of cybercrimes. A company in the sector that may deserve a degree of attention this morning is Zerify Inc (OTCMKTS:ZRFY), which has seen its stock go on a strong rally in early trading today following a key development.
The stock has clocked gains of as much as 20.29% after it made a major new announcement. The company, which is known for providing secure videoconferencing solutions, announced today that the Minority Business Enterprise Apex Cybersecurity Solutions Inc would be offering solutions from Zerify to as many as 5000 not for profit health system members as well as the affiliates.
It would also include as many as 1360 acute care hospitals. The Chief Executive Officer of Zerify Mark L Kay spoke about the latest development as well. He noted that everyone at the company was thrilled at the possibility of working with Apex Cybersecurity due to its expertise in the fields of incident response, threat mitigation and data security.
He went on to add that it was a great advantage for the company to have a partner which was involved in the evolving healthcare industry cybersecurity space. It could also prove to be a massive opportunity to scale up as well.
It was also pointed out by Kay that the cyber criminals have now honed in on healthcare organizations in a big way. These criminals not only target the organizations but also try to harm the third party providers and platforms which are connected to the organization.
