    Apple today announced a new cyber risk management solution aimed at the enterprise market and launching with partners Cisco, Aon, and Allianz. Each company is adding their own expertise into the solution, including cyber resilience evaluation services from Aon, the "most secure" technology from Apple and Cisco, and options for enhanced cyber insurance coverage from Allianz.

    The goal is said to help businesses better manage and protect themselves from the risk of cyber attacks, like ransomware and other malware-related threats. In the announcement, Apple said that the "low adoption" of cyber insurance amid an increased risk of attacks led to the new partnership, which ultimately aims to help businesses become "more resilient" to these threats.

    Businesses taking part in the solution will potentially qualify for lower, "or even no," deductibles in some cases, as well as gain access to "market leading" policy coverage terms. The key elements of the solution include:
    Apple CEO Tim Cook said that the partnership will help make cyber insurance "more accessible" for the businesses that partake in the solution. In total, Apple's iPhone, iPad, and Mac devices are said to be the tools supported under the new insurance.
    Cisco has launched a new website with more information about the cyber risk solution. For business interested, Apple said that the solution is available starting today.

    Nice gossip, this is why I love technology, can’t wait for more juicy information such as this. Stuff that matter! I totally lost interest for what this article is about now, also too complicated to understand

    It's common knowledge really. No bad blood between them....and it's in the Apple rights agreement on every device. I was being facetious ;)

    smells like vapourware. this whole ransomware mitigation is basically screwing with dns name resolution (cisco acquired opendns some years ago) but this is a short sighted method to fight RW. coordination of dormant infected host can be done w/o dns - albeit they use the most trivial way - over legitimate channels, like twitter. the dns stuff is working now, and you get the service mostly for free from many ISPs. indeed they “censor” the internet, which can be abused. on the other hand, cisco is keen to attract more customers to the opendns platform, as collecting dns queries & setting up profiles based on them can bring them quite a lot data which then can be “monetized”. and actually you are paying them to give away your data... wherever insurance companies appear, it starts smell like a nice rip-off to happen soon. internetis a pretty good place to milk the masses
