Cyber Searchlight

A state-of-the-art cyber product designed specifically for the SME market and constructed around the cyber needs of SMEs and their brokers.

The impact of a cyberattack can be devastating both in terms of financial loss and loss of reputation.

Traditional insurance has added to that problem by making the insurance solutions seem complex and confusing.

But Cyber Searchlight focuses on the assistance process that follows a cyber event, and aims to provide a responsive, straightforward service in a business’ hour of need.

Treat it like a fifth emergency service, helping to get your clients back up and running.

Key product features include pre-priced proposal forms, an online broker portal and no excess on first party coverage.
