Jeff Roy, President, IP Group, Clarivate, said, "In today's digital economy, you can't have a commercial enterprise or launch a new offer without a solid domain strategy in place. Yet, domains come with security risks, including infringement, cybersquatting and cyberattacks. At Clarivate, we offer smart, safe, and secure solutions to manage corporate-sized domain portfolios – with unparalleled service and guidance. We're excited to extend these capabilities to Mainland China as part of our overall regional investment – with a focus on better serving the local market and helping our customers and partners around the world to more effectively operate in one of the fastest growing regions when it comes to Intellectual Property."
