Tenable Launches Cyber Insurance Report to Increase Insurability and Lower Premiums for Customers


Tenable has added a Cyber Insurance Report within its Tenable Vulnerability Management solution, which summarizes exposure information relevant to cyber insurance providers in an effort to streamline the policy underwriting process for both insurers and customers. The Tenable Cyber Insurance Report will enable insurers, for the first time, to measure preventive security programs by sharing vulnerability data that resides within the firewall.

Tenable has also partnered with Measured Analytics and Insurance on a referral program that provides qualifying Tenable customers with savings on cyber insurance policies. The relationship represents a new data-driven model for the cyber insurance business, with tangible savings offered to customers.

In a hard market, with premiums rising, even obtaining a cyber insurance policy is no longer guaranteed. It can also be a lengthy process for organizations seeking coverage, with labor-intensive and inefficient applications often based on lengthy, manual surveys of external risk data, which are little more than an estimate of an organization’s true cyber risk profile.

Even for companies with strong cybersecurity practices, risk-averse underwriters may scrutinize the available information and delay what should be a quick process. With Tenable’s Cyber Insurance Report, customers can share data that shows the insurance companies in black and white detail that they maintain good security hygiene along important dimensions.

Jack Vines, co-founder and CEO, Measured Insurance, said, “Measured was founded on the principle that not just any data can be used to underwrite cyber insurance,” “By enhancing our AI-driven underwriting models with ‘inside-out’ data from Tenable and other partners, we’re able to build a holistic understanding of a client’s risk profile, which often results in savings on cyber insurance. Our integrated partner approach provides distinctive insight on risk, making all participants more secure and cyber resilient.”

Measured Analytics and Insurance offers advantaged pricing to qualified applicants who have a Tenable Vulnerability Management license and hit appropriate thresholds in their Cyber Insurance Report. Prospects could also receive additional discounts per additional licensed Tenable solution.

Ray Komar, vice president of technical alliances, Tenable,“Most of the focus to date on assessing cyber risk for cyber insurance policies has been on whether a company has an adequate breach detection and response capability. But incident response means something has already gone wrong,” “There’s never been a way for insurers to measure preventive security, until now.”
