Don't Break the Bank for Security: Cyvatar, Cysurance Deliver Affordable Protection

Don't Break the Bank for Security: Cyvatar, Cysurance Deliver Affordable Protection

By Greg Tavarez

SMBs are often more underserved and vulnerable than larger enterprises when it comes to cybersecurity. Here's a breakdown of why:

  • Limited resources: SMBs typically have smaller budgets and fewer IT staff compared to large enterprises. This makes it difficult for them to afford expensive security solutions and hire dedicated cybersecurity professionals.
  • Lack of expertise: Even if they wanted to implement the best security measures, SMBs may not have the in-house knowledge to do so effectively.
  • Targeted attacks: While large enterprises are prime targets, hackers also find SMBs attractive because they often have weaker defenses.

The result can be a dangerous situation where SMBs are increasingly hit by cyberattacks, often with devastating consequences.

Cyvatar looks to help. But who exactly is Cyvatar?

Cyvatar isn't your average cybersecurity company. They are set to change the way businesses fight cyber threats. Forget complex setups and endless bills. Cyvatar offers a streamlined subscription service.

As a one-stop shop for total cybersecurity, their team of experts handles everything: assessing business needs, installing defenses, keeping things running smoothly and fixing any issues that arise. All for a predictable monthly fee.

No hidden costs, no surprises, just complete peace of mind. Plus, businesses can cancel anytime if their needs change.

Also, Cyvatar's solutions comply with the principles set forth by the Center for Internet Security Controls, which aligns with all major certifications, including SOC 2, HIPAA and NIST CSF.

“Cyvatar brings enterprise-level products and expertise to SMBs that help them continuously manage and remediate risk in an all-in-one solution," said Corey White, founder and CEO of Cyvatar.

And recently, Cyvatar and Cysurance, a next-generation risk mitigation company that insures, warrants and certifies security solutions deployed by enterprise end-users, announced that the Cysurance Certification and Warranty program covers Cyvatar's cybersecurity as a service offerings.

Cysurance identifies best-in-class security solutions that meet the strictest insurance underwriting standards. This means these solutions address security weaknesses across hardware, software, infrastructure and services, regardless of industry or location. By choosing Cysurance-approved options, businesses minimize their cybersecurity vulnerabilities.

An added benefit: Warranties on these certified solutions help reduce out-of-pocket costs like deductibles if a cyberattack occurs.

Cysurance offers Cyvatar customers insurance premiums 30% to 55% lower than comparable cyber insurance policies. This pricing advantage is due to Cyvatar's certification in addressing a comprehensive range of controls, including but not limited to vulnerability scanning, next-generation endpoint security, email phishing protection. Others include MFA, cloud security management, cyber insurance and 24/7 security operations center.

These controls will create better protection for Cyvatar clients and mitigate risk, thus enabling more favorable insurance rates.

“As a program underwriter, the warranties associated with our certification can be applied to cyber insurance deductibles or any other expenses incurred during a security incident or breach,” said Kirsten Bay, CEO of Cysurance. “The added layer of financial security provides peace of mind for Cyvatar customers navigating the complex landscape of cybersecurity threats.”

To summarize, as Bay also mentions, Cysurance-certified solutions from Cyvatar will mitigate vulnerabilities encountered by leaders in the public, private and nonprofit sectors.
