HARTFORD, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 18, 2019--
The Hartford has expanded the range of services designed to protect customers from the costly risk of cyber-attacks. The new additions to The Hartford Cyber Center include detection of digital risk exposure across the dark web from Terbium Labs®, as well as a custom product that uses BlackBerry’s CylancePROTECT® artificial intelligence (AI) and machine-learning software to safeguard business infrastructure.
“New cyber threats pop up every day and we are continuously looking to stay ahead of the curve to protect our customers with the latest technology and services,” said Jacob Ingerslev, head of cyber risk at The Hartford. “These new offerings help keep customers’ data safe by preventing cyber-attacks from happening in the first place and mitigate the impact when they do occur.”

Analysis of an organization’s recent third-party data breach exposure; and

"We are pleased to be a featured technology in The Hartford Cyber Center and to partner with a company that shares a common commitment to helping organizations manage digital risk, prevent fraud, and protect against online intrusion and data theft," said Tyler Carbone, CSO of Terbium Labs.
