As Attacks Rise, Paladin Offers Cybersecurity Platform Free to Insurance Agencies

April 17, 2020

Paladin Cyber is offering independent agents and brokers throughout the U.S. free one-year enrollment in its Paladin Shield cybersecurity platform. The offer is in response to more employees working at home and a sharp rise in cyber attacks related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Paladin Cyber provides cyber protection for small and medium businesses. Its Paladin Shield product provides inbox protection, browser defense, continuous vulnerability assessment and employee cyber-security training, to guard against COVID-19-related phishing attacks, hacking, ransomware and other cyber-related incidents.

According to the company, the platform defends against 99% of attacks targeting browser vulnerabilities and protects against most email inbox exploits, which it says have spiked during the pandemic,

“With many agents and brokers across the U.S. now forced to have their employees work remotely, they’ve significantly increased their vulnerability to potential cyber-attacks,” said Han Wang, CEO, Paladin Cyber.

Wan said if agencies haven’t done so already, they should ramp up their protection against heightened cyber risk – “not only for themselves, but also to reduce the risk of infecting clients with whom they communicate by email or transact business online.”

Paladin said it has streamlined installation to meet the needs of small companies and the tools and features of the Paladin Shield platform can be fully implemented in minutes by companies with no IT capabilities or experience.
