Group-IB, one of the global leaders in preventing high-tech crimes and providing high-grade Threat Intelligence and best in class anti-fraud solutions, will now afford protection to the Fight Nights Global brand, one of the largest European promoters in the industry of mixed martial arts. An agreement to this effect was recently signed by the parties.
Fight Nights Global regularly organizes major tournaments, where the strongest Russian fighters contend with top-notch opponents from the USA, Brazil, Europe, Asia and the CIS. However, there is a flipside to the popularity of mixed martial arts: a higher risk of fake ticket sales, phishing websites and various fraudulent schemes targeting the famous brand. Such threats are fraught not only with reputational risks, but also with direct financial losses due to lost profits.
As a partner of Fight Nights Global, Group-IB will promptly respond to online threats directed against the promoter’s brand. The GIB Brand Protection service detects and blocks fake websites, phishing pages, false promotions and other fraud schemes. By combining search, big data and machine learning technologies, the service automatically tracks online use of the brand. This way its owner can quickly learn about websites, social media groups, ads, mobile apps, contextual advertising breaching the company’s rights and eliminate the majority of violations on a pre-trial basis.
