Guardz announced the launch of its cyber insurance

May 2024 by Marc Jacob

Guardz announced the launch of its cyber insurance offering coupled with active cyber protection, tailored specifically for small and medium sized businesses (SMBs). Available across the US to businesses both directly and through a network of Managed Service Providers (MSPs), the unified Guardz offering is bridging the gap of secure and insure that SMBs and MSPs face in the cybersecurity realm. For the first time, it allows SMBs that were not previously eligible for cyber insurance to receive the protection, coverage, and support they need to thrive in an evolving threat landscape.

The challenge for SMBs seeking cyber insurance is evident: despite 89% recognizing its necessity, only 26% have secured it. This gap highlights long standing issues in the industry, marked by complex and time-consuming processes for obtaining cyber insurance, challenging eligibility requirements, high risk, and high costs. SMBs need to be protected from the inside out, and yet they encounter barriers such as intricate underwriting, tedious questionnaires, and a lack of tailored policies. At times, SMBs can’t even qualify for a policy due to a lack of sufficient cybersecurity protections, or the high risk they pose for the insurance carrier results in prohibitively expensive policies. With new SEC cybersecurity rules now in effect, preparedness is all the more important for private companies of all sizes, necessitating both active protection and insurance for true cyber resilience.

Guardz aims to set a new industry standard with its AI-powered, unified detection, response, and insurance coverage, available both directly to SMBs online via the Guardz website and to those businesses working with Guardz MSP partners. Now available across a majority of US states, the cyber insurance policy offers competitive pricing and a coverage limit of up to $3M, including media content liability, hardware replacement coverage, and ransom payment coverage. Guardz automatically assesses and monitors the inquiring business’s cyber posture, simplifying and shortening the onboarding process while eliminating tedious questionnaires normally associated with applying for a new policy, ultimately saving valuable time and resources for businesses.

For SMBs who are currently uninsurable due to a lack of specific security measures, Guardz seamlessly connects them with its MSP partners, ensuring access to expert support. Additionally, offering these previously ineligible companies the unified Guardz cybersecurity solution renders them eligible to purchase a policy. This personalized approach not only ensures tailored solutions and cyber resilience for businesses, but also fosters additional collaboration with the MSP community, empowering them to deliver exceptional services to their clients alongside Guardz.
