Data breach cyber insurance complements SnoopWall’s network security offering

 

ATLANTA, March 6, 2017 – Assurant, Inc. (NYSE: AIZ), global provider of risk management solutions, is teaming up with breach prevention leader SnoopWall to protect small and medium enterprises from data breaches and cyberattacks.

SnoopWall’s NetSHIELD award-winning breach prevention appliances provide agentless network access control technology, manage and quarantine internal threats, detect rogue assets and identify critical vulnerabilities in real time. Assurant’s coverage helps these businesses recover quickly in the event a breach should occur. Potential benefits include coverage for restoration costs, liability, fines or regulatory penalties, up to $250,000. Assurant will handle claims as part of the service.

“SnoopWall’s technology helps ensure businesses stay safe from data breaches – and as specialists in risk management, we’re standing behind them, combining security and cyber insurance for their users,” said John Frobose, senior vice president, Assurant.  

“Cybercrime is expected to cost the world $6 trillion annually by 2021, up from $600 billion today,” said SnoopWall CEO Gary Miliefsky. “Small and medium enterprises generate more than 80 percent of global GDP, and have become the No. 1 target of cybercriminals. With Assurant, we’re protecting these businesses who could hardly afford even a single breach.”

The SnoopWall partnership is the latest in a series of technology-based innovations in risk management from Assurant, which also safeguards millions of electronics owners, car- and home-sharing customers, and small package shippers.
