Challenges Faced by SMBs in Obtaining Cyber Insurance

In today’s digital landscape, SMBs face a daunting challenge when obtaining cyber insurance coverage. Despite the escalating threat landscape and the potentially devastating impact of cyber attacks, many SMBs grapple with limited resources, expertise, and the complexity of insurance requirements. From stretched budgets to a lack of in-house cybersecurity talent, SMBs are often ill-equipped to meet the stringent criteria set by insurance providers. Coordinating with multiple vendors, navigating evolving cybersecurity standards, and balancing cost considerations further compound the challenge. The statistics highlight this challenge: while a staggering 89% of SMBs recognize the necessity of cyber insurance, only 26% have managed to secure it.

Guardz: Bridging the Gap Between Cybersecurity and Insurance

Guardz is thrilled to launch its latest Cyber Insurance offering to SMBs and aims to set a new industry standard with its AI-powered, unified cybersecurity and insurance offering. 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 combines its expertise in cybersecurity and insurance processes to create an optimized “secure and insure” package for MSPs to offer their SMB clients. This holistic approach addresses the gap between small businesses’ cybersecurity capabilities and insurance requirements, ensuring they are well-prepared to face evolving cyber threats while meeting insurance standards.
