Keeping your business secure just got a little bit easier, as NordPass is officially partnering with Cowbell Cyber to offer small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) a more comprehensive security solution.
While enterprise businesses are often well protected from cybercriminals, smaller organizations often don't have the resources to fend off any and every attack that comes their way. In fact, some hackers specifically target small and medium-sized businesses because of this perceived lack of protection.
Fortunately, cybersecurity providers are taking notice and making an effort to provide tools that keep small and medium-sized businesses safe.
NordPass Partners with Cowbell Cyber
Announced in a press release this week, NordPass Business is reportedly partnering with Cowbell Cyber, an AI-powered cyber insurance provider aimed at helping smaller businesses protect themselves from the evils of malware, ransomware, and the like.
“Together with our partners NordPass, Cowbell brings streamlined access to top cybersecurity solutions to current and future policyholders to maximize their ability to be secure,” said Theresa Le, Head of Claims & Risk Engineering at Cowbell Cyber. “We connect directly with trusted partners to improve the cyber risk profile of our policyholders.”
NordPass will be combining with Cowbell Rx — the company's referral marketplace — and will provide the NordPass Business platform to policy holders for 15% off. The partnership's goal is to provide a more comprehensive, affordable way for small and medium sized businesses to protect themselves online from potential threats.
Do you need to protect your business online?
It may seem like an unnecessary expense, particularly if you've got a strict budget, but the reality is that protecting your business online is vitally important to the longevity of any successful business. Cybercrime is notably on the rise, particularly in the business world, with cost estimates nearing $400 billion on a yearly basis.
“With ever-increasing cybercrime, we highly encourage all of our customers to think about cyber insurance,” said Gerald Kasulis, Head of Business and Channel Operations at NordPass. “Implementing and using a password manager, having Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) in place, or having an import detection response tool — all of these things reduce your risk, and that ultimately may increase your chances of securing a cyber-insurance policy.”
In so many words, you absolutely should protect your business online. Whether it be through password managers, cyber insurance, or some combination of the two, small and medium sized businesses need to take the threat of cybercrime seriously or face the dire consequences.
