NEW YORK, NY (PRWEB) October 04, 2012
Group-IB, the leading Russian IT security company, has agreed to a consulting and services partnership with CloudeyeZ, a global virtual lost and found that looks for compromised intellectual property. In addition, CloudeyeZ Team Member Dan Clements has been named Managing Partner of Group-IB US.
As NASA has partnered with the Russian Space Federation in real space, CloudeyeZ has partnered with Group-IB US in cyberspace on shared intelligence, threat assessment, adversary profiling, and joint co-operation with international cybercrime investigations.
“I'm pleased to become the Managing Partner of GIB US, which will allow our companies to drill down on cyber intelligence to help determine which adversaries have compromised computer systems”, states Dan Clements, former founder of CardCops and current Team Member and Spokesperson for CloudeyeZ.com. “Group-IB US has cultural and deep technical advantages that may help assess what was taken and possibly retrieve lost Intellectual Property or data for our clients.”
Group-IB offers a full range of security services, from preemptive internal and external security assessments to creating layered defenses to 24/7 incident responses with complete forensic lab analysis. “Our partnership with CloudyeZ will allow our companies to work together to demystify the anonymous adversaries and provide better cloud intelligence to corporations, financial institutions, and law enforcement,” said IIya Sachkov, CEO of Group-IB. “The basis of this global intelligence allows us to better design security systems to protect digital assets and help thwart attacks from malious programs.”
Group-IB.com is the first company in Russia and the former Soviet Union working professionally and comprehensively in cybercrime investigation, information security breaches, and computer forensics. As part of the company, a computer forensics lab provides independent computer forensic investigations, including for Russian law enforcement agencies. Created on the basis of Group-IB, the CERT-GIB computer emergency response team operates around the clock. Group-IB is part of LETA Group.
CloudeyeZ.com is a group of international security professionals who have teamed up to offer a progressive solution of possibly recovering lost property from the cloud. Some team members are well known in the press, others are not. CloudeyeZ is united in the belief that cloud based computing and storage on multiple servers that cross global jurisdictions, is absolutely insecure.
For years team members have been involved in security compromises where companies deny hacks, call in law enforcement, maybe fess up, and then blame some third party. This process doesn't confirm what was actually hacked, with very few hackers actually going to jail, and the company may suffer a goodwill loss. This negative protocol usually doesn't allow for any chance of getting the property back. Team members have worked with global banks, Fortune 500 companies, and the investigative units of many governments. It was here it was learned the traditional methods of security investigation and enforcement have proven not to be a deterrent to people who may pose a security threat. Hacking seems to be on a global rise. Since companies and governments lose property every day, this alternative model helps get their property back.
