LexisNexis And Appdetex Form Alliance to Protect Global Brands in Europe

LexisNexis And Appdetex Form Alliance To Protect Global Brands In Europe From Brand Abuse In Digital Channels

Analysis shows that abuse by systemic networks has accelerated during the COVID-19 pandemic and now accounts for 25% of confirmed cases

LONDON & NEW YORKMarch 24, 2021LexisNexis Legal & Professional, a leading global provider of legal, regulatory, business information and analytics, and Appdetex, a global brand protection leader and expert in online detection, assessment, and enforcement of online infringement, today announced a strategic alliance to bring Appdetex digital brand protection solutions to global brands in Europe and the Middle East. The alliance combines the strong global presence of LexisNexis® with best-in-class solutions from Appdetex that automate finding and removing malicious online brand impersonators swiftly to minimize financial and reputation damage.

“With the accelerated adoption of digital channels during the COVID-19 pandemic, brand abuse has become systemic,” said Faisal Shah, CEO of Appdetex. “Coordinated networks and individual bad actors have stepped up creating fake websites, mobile apps, ads, and social profiles to prey upon internet and mobile users and interrupt interactions between customers and the brands they trust. Our alliance with LexisNexis, a global intellectual property protection leader, will enable us to expand into new geographies more quickly than we could on our own.”

A recent Appdetex analysis of more than 100,000 online infringement and other abuse cases over a one-year period found that 25% of brand abuse is part of a systemic brand abuse network. The analysis also showed that in just six months unabated abuse network connections increased by 30% while the number of abuse network nodes grew by nearly 10x.

“Aggressive attacks on our customers’ brands in digital channels generate additional cost of doing business from lost sales and potential legal liabilities,” said Joe Froehlich, Managing Director, LexisNexis Intellectual Property solutions. “Four of the world’s five most valuable brands rely on Appdetex for digital brand protection. The alliance with Appdetex will enable LexisNexis to provide global brands with another layer of protection for their intellectual property by mitigating digital risks.”

Through the alliance, LexisNexis will expand its Intellectual Property portfolio in Europe and the Middle East with the addition of Brand Protection powered by Appdetex.
