The story of brand security

1994

Domain names obtainable in Sweden

Entrepreneurs Hans Thorén and Per-Anders Hurtig are among the first to give the public an opportunity to acquire domain names and hosting solutions.

1999

Sweden's first ICANN registrar

The monopoly on .COM is abolished and ICANN is formed. Our journey starts with the company becoming Sweden's very first ICANN-accredited registrar. This means that we also are Europe's third and the world's seventh registrar.

EARLY 20000S

Protection for intellectual property grows

In the early 2000s, companies see an increased need to monitor and strengthen their intellectual property rights. Ports Group becomes an early player in brand management, which contributes to the company's continued strong growth.

LATE 2000S

The world’s organizations go online

Digitization is gaining momentum and the world is changing rapidly. It is now a matter of course for all businesses to be available online and on social media. This development attracts the interest of criminals, who see opportunities to commit new types of fraud by taking advantage of the security loopholes that now expose companies and their data.

2016

A vision for Brand Security

Ports Group becomes even more pronounced in its vision to protect brand assets around the world. Our new aim is to become an all-in-one partner in Brand Security as we have the in-house expertise required to deliver a complete solution for all disciplines of brand protection – legally, digitally, and technically. 

2018

Ports Management is launched

Companies are seeing a growing need to gather, review and manage their global brand assets. We see an opportunity to create a digital solution where customers can make purchases and renewals themselves, but also get a comprehensive overview of their asset portfolio. This originates the development of our pioneering customer platform Ports Management.
