Group-IB, a Singapore-based cybersecurity company that specializes in preventing cyberattacks, has been recognized with a 5-star rating by CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, in its 2021 Partner Program Guide for its global MSSP (Managed Security Service Provider) & MDR (Managed Detection and Response) program. The annual guide provides a conclusive list of the most distinguished partner programs from leading technology companies that provide products and services through the IT Channel. The 5-Star rating is awarded to an exclusive group of companies that offer solution providers the best of the best, going above and beyond in their partner programs. Group-IB received the highest ranking from the CRN just 3 months following its MSSP & MDR program launch.

Given the importance of IT vendor channel programs, each year CRN develops its Partner Program Guide to provide the channel community with a detailed look at the partner programs offered by IT manufacturers, software developers, service companies, and distributors. Vendors are scored based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support, and communication. CRN analysts assessed Group-IB’s MSSP & MDR program according to the above criteria and gave it the highest score.

Group-IB’s MSSP & MDR program allows partners to integrate Group-IB Threat Hunting Framework (THF) and award-winning Digital Forensics and Incident Response (DFIR), and Digital Risk Protection into their offerings.
