Cybereason and Aon Join Forces to Identify Cyber Threats and Mitigate Risk Before They Become Consequential Breaches

Oct 13, 2021

Cybereason, the leader in operation centric attack protection, and Aon, a leading global professional services firm, today announced an alliance to help protect clients from sophisticated cyber attacks. 

The Cybereason Defense Platform, together with Aon’s Cyber Solutions, will enable clients to better prevent, detect and respond to cyber threats utilizing a combination of services and solutions. This alliance will help to improve the overall security resilience of clients of both firms, to prevent cyber risks from materializing into consequential breaches while managing the impact of cyber incidents through enhanced incident response capabilities.

The recent COVID-19 pandemic has reshaped the nature of business and launched many organizations into an accelerated digital evolution, consequently extending their attack surface and intensifying cyber risk. Through this alliance, organizations will benefit from Cybereason early attack detection and response capabilities to improve client security and maximize return on investment, together with Aon’s extensive experience in cyber risk management, technical proficiency and cyber incident response, helping clients assess, define and improve security capabilities to navigate this long-tail risk.  

“Clients are making critical business decisions daily and rely on Aon’s Cyber Solutions for insights that align security, risk and insurance. Their Security Advisory services assist in enhancing existing cyber security strategies, the development of security and threat management capabilities, as well as incident response plans, which we then deliver through our advanced EDR capabilities,” said Tristian Elder, Vice President of EMEA Partnerships, Cybereason. “We are honored to work with Aon and we look forward to seeing our clients draw a wealth of benefits from our offerings.”

Aon’s Cyber Solutions offers holistic cyber security, risk and insurance management, investigative skills, and proprietary technologies to help clients uncover and quantify cyber risks, protect critical assets, and recover from cyber incidents.

“As a trusted advisor, we strongly believe in providing organizations with the critical insights they need to make better-informed, risk-based decisions relating to cyber security, especially during an incident or potential breach. We want to help our clients remain resilient when preparing for evolving threats such as ransomware in today’s dynamic threat landscape,” said Kraig Rutland, Vice President, Cyber Security EMEA at Aon. “The alliance with Cybereason will provide clients with world-class threat analysis, investigation and response at scale.”
