The cybersecurity industry is expected to grow in the coming years at a fair clip owing to the rise in cybercrimes and threats, which is why it could be a good idea for investors to consider having an interest in the sector. One of the companies which could well be worth looking into is Zerify Inc (OTC:ZRFY).
On Monday, ZRFY stock gained 9.43% to close at $0.0058 on the unusual volume of 9.85 million, well above its average volume of 6.30 million shares.
Zerify has been in business for more than two decades and is currently best known for providing secure videoconferencing solutions. The company made a major new announcement earlier this month on February 13 when it revealed that it had inked a new partnership agreement with the firm Apex Cybersecurity Solutions Inc. Apex is a minority business enterprise and would be responsible for offering the solutions from Zerify to one of the biggest healthcare providers in the United States.
The Chief Executive Officer of Zerify Mark L Kay spoke about the latest partnership as well. He noted that everyone at the company was thrilled at the possibility of working with Apex Cybersecurity. He went on to add that Apex was expert in the fields of incident response, threat mitigation, and data security, which is why it could be a partnership that could be fruitful for both parties.
It could also prove to be a major new opportunity for Zerify as it tries to make a move into the healthcare cybersecurity space. In recent times, healthcare providers have been the subject of a number of cyber-attacks and hence, could well prove to be the next battleground in the cybersecurity industry.
