Group-IB Signs Distribution Agreement with Tech First Gulf


Group-IB has announced the signing of a distribution agreement with Tech First Gulf, a leading value-added distributor in the Middle East and Africa (MEA) region. The partnership, signed in May 2023, will see Tech First Gulf promote Group-IB’s full stack of sector-leading cybersecurity solutions to its wide network of valued vendors and resellers in the Middle East and western, eastern, and central Africa, creating pathways for the localized delivery of Group-IB products and services.

The agreement covers Group-IB’s entire Unified Risk Platform ecosystem, comprising Threat Intelligence, Attack Surface Management, Fraud Protection, Digital Risk Protection, Managed XDR, and Business Email Protection, along with Group-IB’s sector-leading services such as Incident Response, Audit & Consulting, and Cybersecurity Training. Group-IB’s cybersecurity solutions are recognized as some of the best in class by leading independent research firms Gartner, IDC, and Frost & Sullivan.

Tech First Gulf specializes in providing cutting-edge IT products and services to its network of 2,500-plus partners across the Middle East and Africa. The company, which has a network of 11 regional MEA offices, specializes in providing added value to companies in key verticals such as government, BFSI, oil and gas, and health care. Group-IB’s products and services will feature heavily within Tech First Gulf’s growing cybersecurity offering.

“Group-IB is actively working to develop its regional partner network in Africa, and partnering with Tech First Gulf, a distributor that shares Group-IB’s mission of fighting against cybercrime, is another achievement for the company. We don’t simply provide services to our partners; we cultivate relationships and prioritize value creation for both the distributor and the end client. We look forward to leveraging Tech First Gulf’s extensive expertise in the African market to provide a greater level of cybersecurity services for public and private organizations on the continent, and across the broader MEA region,” Ashraf Koheil, Group-IB’s Regional Sales Director META, said.

“We are excited to announce our new distribution agreement with Group-IB, a leading provider of cyber security solutions, for the MEA region. By combining TFG’s regional knowledge with Group-IB’s global experience, we will be able to provide tailored cybersecurity solutions that meet the unique challenges and requirements of this region. We are confident that this collaboration will be a significant step forward in strengthening the cyber security posture of businesses in MEA, and we look forward to this strategic partnership with Group-IB,” Akashdeep Singh, Tech First Gulf’s Chief Strategy Officer, said.

Group-IB continues to monitor and respond to active and emerging digital threats in the MEA region from the company’s Digital Crime Resistance Center in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Group-IB Threat Intelligence discovered that, between H2 2021 and H1 2022, 150 MEA companies had data leaked on dedicated leak sites by ransomware gangs following successful attacks. This research, published in Group-IB’s Hi-Tech Crime Trends 2022/2023 report, also revealed that Israel (23 companies), South Africa (21) and Turkey (14) were the most affected MEA countries by ransomware attacks in the recording period.
