Cowbell, a provider of cyber insurance for small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), has announced a collaboration with Microsoft and Ingram Micro Inc. (Irvine, Calif.). Through this collaboration, Cowbell policyholders gain access to complimentary Microsoft Exchange migrations to Microsoft 365 Business Premium, empowering SMEs to harness the full potential of AI and achieve seamless transitions to the cloud while ensuring enhanced cybersecurity hygiene and risk assessment for new policies, according to a Cowbell statement.
The new relationship harnesses the capabilities of the Cowbell Connector for Microsoft to offer a seamless transition to Microsoft 365. Cowbell now offers free cloud migration services to businesses in the U.S. and U.K., providing its policyholders with the ability to enhance their security posture, reduce exposure to cyber threats, and earn a 5 percent premium credit at renewal by implementing essential security measures, including multi-factor authentication and Microsoft Defender for Microsoft 365.This collaboration simultaneously fosters the adoption of cyber insurance within the SME market.
“Cowbell is dedicated to enhancing our customers’ cybersecurity posture, especially as cyberattacks are on the rise for SMEs,” comments Manu Singh, VP, Risk Engineering, Cowbell. “We are thrilled to partner with Microsoft to provide valuable services and resources to our policyholders.”
Strengthening the Community with Security Solutions
“As cybersecurity attacks continue to rise, our vendor partners are coming together to strengthen the community with security solutions that meet updated cyber insurance requirements,” comments John Dusett, Executive Director & Category Leader, Cloud & Strategic Vendors, Ingram Micro. “Cyber insurance often starts as a business decision to financially insulate a company in case of a breach—for our resellers and their end customers, it also creates a framework for establishing security policies utilizing tools like Microsoft 365 to protect their businesses.”
Prior to the migration, each organization will undergo an evaluation of their current IT infrastructure, and once the scope of the migration is understood, Ingram Micro’s partners provide estimates for migration duration, with an average turnaround time of one week, the Cowbell statement says. Once the cloud migration is completed, organizations will have the opportunity to gain a deeper level of insights on their cloud environment through Cowbell’s cyber platform, the vendor adds.
