Abdi İbrahim, a multinational pharmaceutical company with 4600 employees, is recognized globally for its significant contributions to the healthcare industry. However, with its global reach, Abdi İbrahim faced a complex cybersecurity challenge - phishing attacks that target their business and supply chain.

Abdi İbrahim wanted to safeguard their assets by effectively identifying and counteracting malicious activities using reliable threat intelligence data. They sought a solution that offered a comprehensive view of threat actors, enhanced their investigative approach, and accelerated their Incident Response (IR) efforts. Their goal was to

  1. to block threats before they could reach them or their supply chain,
  2. to prevent damage if threats had already infiltrated.

After reviewing different threat intelligence platforms, Abdi Ibrahim chose Keepnet Labs. Unlike others that only provide threat feeds, Keepnet provided trusted, reliable data and enabled peer-to-peer threat sharing. This led Abdi Ibrahim to automate responses to threats, enhancing its digital security and reinforcing trust among clients and supply chains while protecting its global brand integrity.
