Kivu and Lockton MEDR Announcement

Kivu Consulting partners with Lockton to provide a cost-effective solution to reduce ransomware risk.

Kivu, a leading cybersecurity solutions provider, and trusted partner to insurance carriers and law firms is pleased to announce a new partnership with Lockton, the world’s largest independent insurance brokerage, to provide small and middle market enterprise access to Kivu’s Managed Security Service. This partnership provides a cost-effective and class leading solution to minimize ransomware risk. With competitive pricing, this solution is no longer exclusive to large enterprises.

With Kivu’s Managed Security Service (MSS) in the driver’s seat, Kivu can reduce the risk of a cybersecurity incident utilizing Endpoint Detection & Response (EDR) software in tandem with our Security Operations Center (SOC). Endpoint security secures each device on your network by running at the core of an endpoint’s operating system where the EDR software monitors all processes in real-time. This protection secures endpoints through application control, effectively blocking the use of applications that are unsafe or unauthorized. Utilizing machine learning the EDR software identifies and flags threats—effectively stopping and isolating ransomware. However, it is Kivu’s SOC that is the key to a safer business environment. The SOC ingests indicators of compromise from Kivu’s threat intelligence database into the EDR solution—allowing the software to quickly identify malware. Further, with 24x7x365 administrative console monitoring, SOC analysts will investigate all suspicious activity, triage it according to urgency, and take necessary steps to protect endpoints.

With Kivu managed EDR, the Lockton client will gain:

  • Advanced anti-malware and anti-viral protection to detect and isolate malware across multiple endpoints and operating systems
  • Machine-learning classification to detect zero-day threats in real-time
  • Proactive security to ensure safe browsing on the web
  • Data classification and data loss prevention
  • Integrated firewall to block hostile network attacks
  • A centralized endpoint management platform to improve visibility and operation

Pairing a EDR solution managed by Kivu’s SOC and supported by Kivu’s threat intelligence is advanced, agile technology coupled with real human expertise to provide an extra layer of security that will ensure the Lockton client can fend off ransomware, and other malware to be a better risk for Lockton’s insurance carrier partners at an affordable price.
