Clarivate Analytics plc, a global leader in providing trusted insights and analytics to accelerate the pace of innovation, has announced the completion of the previously announced agreement to sell the MarkMonitorTM brand protection, antipiracy and antifraud business to OpSec Security, a global leader in anti-counterfeiting and brand protection solutions.
As a result, MarkMonitor and its domain management business will continue to be an integral part of Clarivate’s intellectual property offerings, which includes CompuMark, Derwent, Techstreet and the recently acquired Darts-ip.
The domain management landscape has changed dramatically over the last 30 years. The first domain was registered in 1985 and with the increase of online crime and the launch of generic top-level domains (gTLDs), brands now need to take more proactive steps to protect their reputation and their customers. Domains can be a significant asset for organisations, not just in terms of brand building and competitive distinction but also in boosting revenue through increased web traffic, setting up brands for long-term success by building trust, professionalism and credibility. As such the MarkMonitor domain management business fits well within the Clarivate intellectual property solution portfolio.
