Intact wins Group-IB distribution rights
Intact Software Distribution has won the distribution rights to Group-IB, a high-grade threat intel-ligence and anti-fraud solutions provider.
"The company's experience and threat intelligence is unprecedented, and has been fused into an eco-system of highly sophisticated software and hardware solutions to monitor, identify and prevent cyber threats," says Simon Campbell-Young, CEO of Intact Software Distribution.
According to him, Group-IB is a perfect addition to the Intact stable, and Intact aims to offer a complete security solutions to clients.
He says Group-IB is the unquestioned leader in advanced threat protection, and will benefit In-tact's clients enormously. Intact, in turn, is well placed to help grow the Group-IB brand in South Africa and the rest of the continent, he continues.
Group-IB has four flagship solutions that Intact will be offering its customers: Threat Intelligence, Threat Detection System (TDS), Secure Bank and Secure Portal.
Threat Intelligence delivers quick attack and threat notifications for the business, its clients and partners. It also enables direct access to compromised data and tactics, techniques and proce-dures (TTPs) of malicious activity, and offers detections, analysis and forecasts of hacking ac-tivity in the areas of interest. It features an easy-to-use Web interface for data search and analy-sis, personal cyber intelligence analyst support, and tailored reports and malware analysis.
Campbell-Young says TDS is a tool used to identify unusual happenings on, or threats to the network in real-time. It warns about malware and infected devices on an organisation's wireless networks, and provides manual log analysis and allocation of critical incidents by Group-IB ex-perts.
Secure Bank controls risks related to the weakest link in the online payment security chain - a company's clients. "It detects fraud preparation and execution without installing any software on client devices by identifying several threats, including malicious injections in an online banking system, phishing and social engineering attacks, unsanctioned remote connection to a consum-er's device to conduct transactions on his/her behalf, and malicious code to conduct automatic payment or substitute account details on consumer devices. It also roots out new versions of malicious software and intrusions through zero-day vulnerabilities," he explains.
Lastly, Secure Portal enables businesses to control risks related to a vulnerability in the Internet business security chain: Web site users. "The solution detects fraud preparation and attempts in real-time without installation of any additional software on client devices to identify several threats. These include unsanctioned access and use of sensitive or confidential information, bank card data collection and stolen card use, and phishing and social engineering attack meth-ods," concludes Campbell-Young.
