Cyber Coverage for Your Clients

Coalition is the first insurance-enabled technology firm built to help businesses before, during and after a cyber incident. During the online quoting process, your network and web properties undergo an automated risk assessment to identify known issues and potential security weaknesses.​​

Once coverage is bound, Coalition provides ongoing monitoring for new and emerging threats specific to the information technology used by the insured, adding an extra layer of defense. All policies include this technology-driven approach—which includes automated alerts, threat intelligence and ongoing policyholder monitoring—along with a dedicated claims and security team should a breach occur.

Through the Big “I" Markets platform, any Big “I" member agency can quote and bind insurance online. Big “I" members also have direct access to Coalition's licensed agents and renowned cybersecurity experts via online chat throughout the sales and underwriting process.
