Partnering with the MEA region’s leading value-added distributor (VAD) Spire Solutions for the event, this year marks Group-IB’s first appearance at GITEX
Cybersecurity firm Group-IB is showcasing its intelligence-driven Unified Risk Platform at GITEX GLOBAL 2022, the Middle East’s largest technology exhibition. During the event, which runs from October 10-14, visitors have the opportunity to learn more about Group-IB’s full stack of threat hunting and intelligence solutions.
“Group-IB is delighted to be participating in GITEX 2022, a leading event for our industry in the Middle East. Our attendance underscores Group-IB’s established and ever-growing presence in the region, and follows on the back of a significant strengthening of our capabilities and skill sets in the Middle East and Africa,” Ashraf Koheil, Director of Business Development, Middle East & Africa at Group-IB, said.
Partnering with the MEA region’s leading value-added distributor (VAD) Spire Solutions for the event, this year marks Group-IB’s first appearance at GITEX, just under 18 months after the company opened the doors of its Middle East & Africa Threat Intelligence & Research Center in Dubai, UAE.
“Group-IB is looking forward to meeting with representatives from its ever-growing client base, including some of the region’s top banking and financial institutions, along with representatives of its thriving partner ecosystem,” Ashraf Koheil said.
On the opening day of GITEX 2022, Group-IB’s Principal Incident Response and Digital Forensics Analyst (MEA) Svetlana Ostrovskaya participated in the exhibition’s conference track and detailed how Group-IB’s Compromise Assessment capabilities can help organizations discover the hidden threats buried in their networks.
Group-IB: From strength to strength in MEA
Ever since the launch of the company’s regional HQ in Dubai, Group-IB analysts have gone to great lengths to protect the region’s organizations and internet users through the discovery of a range of threats at the hands of malicious actors.
In its 2021/22 Ransomware Uncovered report, Group-IB detailed how 147 MENA companies had their data uploaded on ransomware leak sites between Q1 2021 and Q1 2022, and our analysts recently discovered that 17 UAE companies were targeted in a campaign by the ransomware gang Conti.
When it comes to protecting consumers, Group-IB’s Digital Risk Protection team has uncovered how Middle Eastern users were targeted by the highly sophisticated scam-as-a-service program Classiscam. Our findings show that more than 280 users in the Middle East have been victims of the scam in 2022, with the average amount being stolen by users coming in at 1,961 AED ($534).
Group-IB’s Digital Risk Protection team has also discovered more than 120,000 fraudulent domains linked to a wide-scale scheme that saw malicious actors impersonate more than 500 brands in the Middle East and Africa.
Additionally, our researchers have uncovered more than 15,000 fake web pages and social media posts in a complex HR scam over the past year, along with more than 200 domains linked to a fake investment scam.
Unified Risk Platform: Threat Intelligence in Action
Launched in June 2022, Group-IB’s Unified Risk Platform is an ecosystem of solutions that understands each organization’s threat profile and tailors defenses against them in real time, offering organizations 360° protection from malicious actors.
The Unified Risk Platform allows organizations to quickly deploy and integrate the full force of Group IB’s cybersecurity solutions, including our Managed XDR, Attack Surface Management, Fraud Protection, Digital Forensics & Incident Response, and Threat Intelligence services.
Meet Group-IB at Spire Solutions, Stand H2-B1, at the Dubai World Trade Center, where their team will be on hand throughout the full GITEX 2022 program to talk through all your cybersecurity needs.
