Over time, Group-IB’s Digital Forensics and Incident Response team (DFIR) team has developed proprietary technologies and systems to perform correct and timely forensic examination, analysis of malware and traces of hacker attacks, including those within deleted and encrypted data, which laid the groundwork for Group-IB’s unique threat hunting ecosystem of products and services.
