ActZero to Partner with Zeguro to Give Holistic Cyber Risk Management and Response for all Businesses

ActZero | June 10, 2021

ActZero, a cybersecurity startup, has decided to partner with Zeguro, a cyber-insurance provider, to create a complete cyber risk management solution for mid-size and small-size businesses.

As ransomware is becoming the norm and bad actors come against SMBs that are less-well-resourced, businesses seek far better solutions for security and insurance. To keep business premiums low and business secure, cyber insurance providers have long been advocated for clients to leverage response and detection capabilities that will reduce various risks of cyber threats in operations. This relationship will enable multiple organizations to know about management strategies of risks across both paths. The intelligent managed detection and response (MDR) service of ActZero provides protection, response, and monitoring 24/7 support.

Earlier times, advanced cybersecurity technologies were accessed by corporates only as it was considered a luxury. SMBs can effectively prevent intrusions and manage threats with ActZero. Innovation in machine learning and artificial intelligence and a novel combination of threat-hunting expertise of the platform will assist SMBs for it. ActZero has the capabilities that strengthen its clients to elucidate and toughen their security, strengthen their defense competencies, and significantly decrease risk over time.

The mission of Zeguro is to simplify cyber insurance through effortlessly achievable and comprehensible cyber quotes that can obtain in a few minutes. Customers of ActZero can take benefit of its relationship with Zeguro to inexpensively accomplish coverage for loss of revenue from payment fraud, breaches, regulatory fines, ransomware, and more.
