Cyber insurance provider Cowbell Cyber has announced the launch of a new program designed to provide its clients with comprehensive, closed-loop risk management.
The new Cowbell Connect is a partnership program between Cowbell Cyber and a number of cybersecurity vendors, data aggregators, risk mitigation and other service providers. The program combines these resources to help Cowbell’s clients handle cyber incidents.
Through the program, Cowbell Cyber bundles cyber coverage with risk assessment, quantification, and mitigation as well as pre- and post-breach services.
“The complex worlds of cybersecurity and insurance have traditionally operated in silos. Cowbell Cyber brings the two worlds together to make it easy for policyholders to understand where they stand against today’s biggest cyber threats,” said Cowbell Cyber vice president of market engagement Isabelle Dumont. “Cowbell Connect brings together the richest partner ecosystem made up of partners and experts to enable closed-loop risk management from identification, quantification, remediation and financial protection.”
The vendors participating in the program, and the services they provide include:
- Data aggregators: Advisen, Dun & Bradstreet, DarkOwl
- Cloud providers: Microsoft 365, Azure, AWS and Google
- Cybersecurity platforms: Qualys, Safeguard, Security Studio
- Training providers: Wizer
- Managed service providers
- Incident response services
- Digital platforms and ecosystems
- Industry associations: Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America (IIAB), the Insurance Agency Owners Alliance (IOAO), the Insurance Connector, and the Stay Safe Online program
“Businesses need a 360-degree view of their cyber risk that is continuously updated and includes vulnerabilities, cloud threats, and compliance gaps,” said Qualys vice president of strategic alliances and channel development Karun Malik.
“The strategic alignment between SafeGuard Cyber and Cowbell Cyber is a win for customers seeking to mitigate risks and protect themselves against advanced digital threats,” commented SafeGuard cyber VP of strategic partnerships Karen Kukoda.
