Adding financial protection to lower risk for small to midsized businesses
ATLANTA, Sept. 26, 2016 – Assurant, Inc. (NYSE: AIZ), global provider of risk management solutions, is teaming up with website security company GamaSec to significantly lower the risk of attacks on small and medium business websites.
Assurant is providing support for the limited warranty issued by GamaSec with its new GamaCyber website security offering. The warranty helps businesses get back on their feet after damages from website or web application attacks, including costs related to data restoration, customer notification, credit monitoring, public relations and more – up to $50,000 for impacted users.
“Small and medium businesses can run significant risks if their websites and web applications are vulnerable,” said John Frobose, senior vice president, Assurant. “As specialists in risk management, we’re working with GamaSec to strengthen the resilience of businesses in the event they fall prey to web attacks.”
“Customers are demanding cyber-security offerings that integrate warranty protection at an affordable price,” said Robert Zimmer, vice president, Strategy & Business Development, GamaSec. “With Assurant’s support, GamaSec is introducing GamaCyber, an offering that combines website security and a limited data-breach warranty.”
The GamaSec 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.
