Sophos partners with Cowbell Cyber

Sophos, a UK-based provider of cyber security solutions, has partnered with cyber insurance provider Cowbell. As part of the partnership, Sophos clients in the US will be able to share their security health information with Cowbell to better facilitate optimal premium quotes and policies.

In addition to the connector between Sophos Central and Cowbell, which will be generally available in April, Sophos will facilitate access to Cowbell insurance through the Sophos Marketplace.

“Specifically with this partnership, Sophos endpoint customers will be able to ‘opt-in’ to share with Cowbell their endpoint security health status from the Sophos Central platform, using a new data connector. This easy-to-enable connection will streamline Cowbell’s risk assessment process, allowing assessors to efficiently evaluate Sophos customers’ defenses against the requirements needed for insurance policies. Ideally, the best cyber defense is to have proper protection, detection and response security already in place, but some organizations still need guidance on best practices. This partnership will enable Sophos and Cowbell to provide real-time feedback to our customers about how to improve their practices and risk profile, if needed. We’re excited to work with Cowbell to help forge this path for our customers and other SMEs.” – Raja Patel, senior vice president of products at Sophos.

“Cowbell is committed to making it easier for SMEs to obtain cyber insurance as part of their overall cybersecurity strategy, particularly with the non-stop evolution of cyberattacks. Our partnership with Sophos supports this commitment, and together we are providing easy, direct access to our cyber insurance services, opportunities for dynamic risk assessment, solutions for improving risk profiles, and optimized premiums. Our partnership with Sophos will expand access to cyber insurance to SMEs, plus provide flexible options based on the size of the company and the coverage needed.” – Rajeev Gupta, chief product officer and co-founder at Cowbell.
