CrowdStrike Launches Falcon for Insurability Program

CrowdStrike Launches Falcon for Insurability Program

Deploying CrowdStrike’s Falcon in their existing solution will enable global organisations to strengthen their resources against cyber criminals.

CrowdStrike unveiled Falcon for Insurability, a new program allowing cyber insurers to provide organisations with cyber protection from the AI-native CrowdStrike Falcon cybersecurity platform at preferred rates. 

With Falcon for Insurability, insurers including Ascot Group, AXA XL, Beazley Insurance, Berkley Cyber Risk Solutions, Coalition and Resilience reduce underwriting risk knowing that insured organisations have best-in-class cyber protection from the Falcon platform to improve cyber resilience and stop breaches.

The persistence and sophistication of cyberattacks continue to create cyber risk underwriting challenges: more organisations are having to decide between paying higher premiums, receiving reduced coverage, and rationalising their cybersecurity spend. Carriers are requiring companies to have advanced cyber defences to qualify for policies, excluding many from obtaining coverage.

Falcon for Insurability allows carriers to provide the world’s most advanced AI-powered protection at preferred rates. With the Falcon platform, organisations can detect 96% more threats in half the time compared to other vendors, and conduct investigations 66% faster – significantly improving their ability to stop breaches. This reduces cyber risk for companies and underwriting risk for carriers, allowing more businesses to obtain coverage while increasing their cyber defences.
