Group-IB has been named one of the leaders in the global cyber threat intelligence market by Frost - Sullivan, the international research and consulting firm.

According to Frost Radar: Global Cyber Threat Intelligence Market 2021, Group-IB, with its Threat Intelligence - Attribution (TI-A) platform, is one of the most innovative threat intelligence vendors and the third-largest one, with a 15% share of the global market.

The Frost Radar analytical research reports benchmark companies innovation focus and growth performance. When it comes to Group-IB, Frost - Sullivan analysts particularly highlighted the growth rate of the company, noting its average revenue growth of 72% in the past three years.

Group-IB's TI-A system, offering customer-tailored data on threats and attackers, is used by banks and financial organisations, state agencies, telecom and FMCG companies in more than 60 countries.

Organisations around the world use the solution to prevent, deter and defeat cybersecurity incidents by analysing and attributing cyber attacks, hunting for threats, and fortifying network infrastructure.

Group-IB has gathered data from extensive cyber-intelligence infrastructure from a comprehensive and unique range of sources, including exclusive data from investigations conducted with law enforcement partners.

The system's collection capabilities cover various subsets of battleground intelligence, including APTs, malware, and criminal activity, gathered as part of incident response operations and international investigations.

These collection capabilities enable customers to have a tailored, region-specific threat landscape that switches accordingly to the changes in the actions and strategies of adversaries.

Organisations can use Group-IB's graph network analysis to correlate and analyse threat actors and events. Alternatively, they can consume intelligence by integrating Group-IB TI-A directly into their security ecosystem due to integration options.

Organisations can further augment their internal capabilities with Group-IB's in-house Digital Forensics and Incident Response (DFIR), Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-GIB), and Investigations team.

This enables organisations to utilise the experience of skilled analysts if they need assistance with investigations or incident response.

Powered by more 100+ patents for unique innovations, Group-IB boasts broad capabilities for threat intelligence analysts. As a result of its innovations, Group-IB is rapidly gaining mindshare in the cybersecurity industry and threat intelligence community, the report states.

Group-IB CTO and co-founder Dmitry Volkov says, "Developing its solutions, Group-IB has been trying to ensure a proactive protection for its customers by equipping them with tools that can foresee attackers behaviour.

"This is achieved thanks to Group-IB Threat Intelligence - Attributions huge database containing over a billion domains, SSL-certificates, hundreds of millions IP-addresses, as well as the history of all the changes in the global network for the past 10 years.

"This database makes it possible to extract the digital fingerprint of a specific cybercriminal or cybercrime gang targeting our customers and determine his presumed identity. The data gathered can serve as a starting point for a further thorough investigation by law enforcement."

To continue the company's growth, Group-IB is focused on forming partnerships with law enforcement agencies and non-governmental and inter-governmental organisations worldwide.
