Property and casualty insurer The Hartford has expanded its range of cyber services with two new partnerships that will help detect digital risk exposure on the dark web and safeguard business infrastructure.

Customers will also be offered a custom report containing analysis of recent third-party breach exposure, and a list of employee accounts most at risk for account takeover, impersonation, or phishing.

The second new offering makes use BlackBerry’s CylancePROTECT software, which provides a tailored high-efficacy endpoint security platform through a licensing partnership with Verizon Managed Security Services (MSS).

This includes artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to detect widespread security threats, identification and blocking of known and unknown malware, and installation, monitoring, and alert response expertly managed through Verizon MSS.

The Hartford believes the new offerings will complement its existing portfolio of cyber services, which includes access to a data privacy and cybersecurity attorney, security awareness training, automated security ratings, and 24/7 cyber claims hotline.

“New cyber threats pop up every day and we are continuously looking to stay ahead of the curve to protect our customers with the latest technology and services,” said Jacob Ingerslev, Head of Cyber Risk at The Hartford.

“These new offerings help keep customers’ data safe by preventing cyber-attacks from happening in the first place and mitigate the impact when they do occur.”

Tyler Carbone, CSO of Terbium Labs, also commented: “We are pleased to be a featured technology in The Hartford Cyber Center and to partner with a company that shares a common commitment to helping organizations manage digital risk, prevent fraud, and protect against online intrusion and data theft.”

“BlackBerry is excited to partner with The Hartford to offer AI-powered endpoint security with CylancePROTECT,” added Steve Struthers, Vice President, Global Solutions and Alliances at BlackBerry.

“We created this exciting program exclusively for The Hartford to offer their customers a proactive security solution that enhances or replaces legacy antivirus and dramatically reduces the risk of cyber attacks.”
