Cyber Catalyst by MarshSM offers organizations greater clarity and confidence in selecting cybersecurity offerings that can have a meaningful impact on cyber risk.
Cyber CatalystSM also gives cybersecurity vendors a high visibility platform to efficiently showcase products and services to the marketplace.
Clarity in a Crowded Cybersecurity Market
The cybersecurity market is estimated to reach $120 billion in 2019, with 3,000+ cybersecurity firms offering thousands of products and services to combat and reduce cyber risk. Not only is it challenging for organizations to navigate; it can also be difficult for cybersecurity vendors to stand out and differentiate their products and services.
Cyber CatalystSM offers cybersecurity vendors an efficient way to present their solutions to an influential audience, and to the broader market.
In Cyber CatalystSM , cybersecurity firms can submit eligible products and services for evaluation by leading insurers. Those products and services viewed as effective in reducing cyber risk will be designated as “Cyber CatalystSM".
The Cyber CatalystSM designation indicates that leading cyber insurers consider that offering as effective in reducing cyber risk, and it can be a powerful tool used by cybersecurity firms in their marketing.
