Spire Solutions and Group-IB have partnered to bolster Middle East’s cyber environment. Group-IB, a solution provider devoted to detecting and preventing cyberattacks, identifying online fraud, investigating high-tech crimes, and protecting intellectual property, has struck a collaboration agreement with Spire Solutions. The collaboration will enable the Middle East region’s organizations, private and public entities to improve their cybersecurity posture by leveraging Group-IB’s ecosystem of unique threat hunting and intelligence, anti-fraud and digital risk prevention solutions, and award-winning services.
Some of the world’s largest financial and industrial hubs are located in the Middle East and Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region. As a result, both financially driven threat actors and APT groups see the region as an attractive target. Industry-specific cyber threat intelligence, digital risk prevention, and investigative tools are required as part of the GCC’s efforts to improve its cyber resilience. This will be possible thanks to the collaboration between Group-IB and Spire Solutions, which will provide customers with comprehensive solutions.
Customers in the region will be able to use the whole Group-IB service and product portfolio, including Group-IB Threat Intelligence & Attribution, Threat Hunting Framework, Fraud Hunting Platform, and Digital Risk Protection solutions, as a result of this relationship. Group-IB’s cybersecurity ecosystem and patented breakthrough solutions assist cybersecurity teams in consolidating, prioritizing, and responding to threats.
To aid the region’s fight against cybercrime, Group-IB opened its regional headquarters and MEA Threat Intelligence & Research Center earlier this year. Group-IB’s aim to continue increasing its market reach in the Middle East and GCC region is exemplified by the distribution deal with Spire Solutions.
Spire Solutions has a strong track record of effectively providing innovative cybersecurity solutions to customers in the Middle East and Africa. Spire is one of the region’s major value-added distributors of specialty cyber security systems and services, serving more than 15 nations. Spire has earned a reputation as a preferred security partner for CISOs at a variety of government agencies and businesses. Spire has been empowering its partners for more than a decade by offering an understanding of the local security and threat landscape, as well as having a specialized section focusing on cyber threat intelligence, comprehensive risk protection, and response.
“The Middle East and GCC is one of the fastest-growing and demanding markets striving for continuous improvement in all aspects including government, services, banking with cybersecurity at the forefront,” commented Group-IB MEA Director of Business Development Ashraf Koheil.
Also added, “We are excited to be represented by Spire Solutions in the region. The company has a wide network of partners and substantial technical expertise in the region. Spire Solutions’ well-established operations will facilitate Group-IB’s efforts to secure an increasing number of companies in the Middle East and GCC region against constantly evolving threats and assist them in adopting a comprehensive cybersecurity approach.”
“As they fast-track their digital transformation journey, governments and enterprises in the region are increasingly encountering a growing number of cyber risks, threats and attacks. By joining forces with Group-IB, we aim to deliver comprehensive protection to our customers and build a vibrant regional cybersecurity ecosystem. Spire Solutions partnered with Group-IB owing to their expertise in threat intelligence, detecting and preventing cyberattacks, online fraud, and IP protection. Under the distribution agreement, we will promote Group-IB’s technologies, help to expand their regional footprint, and grow potential business opportunities through our regional sales and marketing expertise, extensive partner network, and strong customer portfolio.” said Rami Refaat, Head of Cyber Threat Intelligence Business Unit at Spire Solutions.
