Cisco, Apple, Aon, Allianz Partner to Address Cyber Risk Management

Cisco, Apple, Aon, and Allianz have announced a new cyber risk management solution for businesses, comprised of evaluation services from Aon, technology from Cisco and Apple, and options for enhanced cyber insurance coverage from Allianz. 

The solution is designed to help a wider range of organizations manage cyber risk associated with common malware-related threats. 

The new solution is aimed at helping organizations better manage and protect themselves from  the cyber risk associated with ransomware and other malware-related threats, which are the most common threats faced by organizations today.

The new solution covers the primary dimensions of cyber protection for businesses.

The key elements of the offering include a Cyber Resilience Evaluation performed by Aon cyber security professionals who assess interested customers’ cyber security posture and recommend ways to help improve their cyber security defenses.

In addition, customers using Cisco Ransomware Defense, and/or qualified Apple products can be eligible for the Allianz-developed enhanced cyber insurance offering. This, in combination with individual risk insights gained through the Cyber Resilience Evaluation, makes possible the enhanced cyber insurance coverage to Cisco and Apple business customers. Enhancements include policy coverage terms and conditions, including potentially qualifying for lower, or even no, deductibles in certain cases. The cyber insurance coverage is underwritten by Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty (AGCS). According to the companies, Cisco Ransomware Defense is part of Cisco’s integrated security portfolio that leverages threat intelligence from Cisco Talos to see threats once, and block them everywhere, while iOS devices help ensure that each component of the system is trusted, from initial boot-up to installing third-party apps.

Organizations using the solution will have access to Cisco and Aon’s Incident Response teams in the event of a malware attack.
