Group-IB Signs Partnership Agreement with Corr-Serve in South Africa

Group-IB, one of the global cybersecurity leaders, has signed a partnership agreement with Corr-Serve, a South African value-added distributor of IT solutions. The partnership allows Corr-Serve to bolster its cybersecurity portfolio with the full stack Group-IB’s solutions and services, dedicated to detecting and preventing cyberattacks, including with cyber threat intelligence, in-depth attack analysis, and effective incident response.

According to a recent Hi-Tech Crime Trends 2021/2022 report, South African enterprises were the most frequent targets of the sellers of access to compromised networks in H2 2020 — H1 2021 in Africa. South Africa’s share accounted for almost 25% of the total number of access sales in Africa during the reporting period. A sharp increase in the number of offers to sell access to compromised corporate networks became one of the underlying trends on the cybercrime arena. Initial access brokers actively partner with ransomware operators removing the need for them to break into corporate networks on their own.

To address these ever-evolving cyber threats in the region, Group-IB makes its full gamut of highly sophisticated software and hardware solutions designed to monitor, identify, and prevent cyber threats available for the resellers in the Corr-Serve fold. Group-IB’s flagship products named one of the best in class by Gartner, Forrester, IDC, Frost & Sullivan, and KuppingerCole Analysts AG include Threat Intelligence & Attribution, Threat Hunting Framework, Digital Risk Protection, Fraud Hunting Platform, Asset Zero (Attack Surface Management), and Group-IB Atmosphere (Cloud Email Protection). Additionally, Corr-Serve reseller network will enjoy Group-IB’s cybersecurity service wing. The partnership allows Corr-Serve to bolster its cybersecurity portfolio with globally recognized products and services guarding companies in more than 60 countries against known and unknown threats to digital assets.

Group-IB’s adversary-centric approach based on 18 years of experience brings a much-needed solution to South African shores. With identity fraud on the rise, reportedly over 330% last year, solutions that help prevent and investigate are critical at this point in time. We’re proud to be able to add the best online fraud detection and enterprise fraud management solutions to our books.
