Cowbell Tackles Rising Demand for Cyber

Cowbell Cyber, an AI-powered cyber insurance provider for small to medium enterprises (SMEs), announces the launch of Cowbell Re, its highly anticipated cyber insurance captive, to address the increased demand for cyber insurance while helping policyholders build cyber resiliency and close insurability gaps.

The creation of Cowbell Re reflects the company’s commitment to cyber insurance and confidence in its unique approach to cyber risk underwriting.

Cowbell experienced exceptional growth in 2021, driven by its AI-assisted underwriting, reaching more than $200 million in premium run-rate. Unique to the cyber insurance industry, Cowbell’s modern underwriting is backed by data, AI and the industry’s largest risk pool – 21 million accounts covering 62 percent of U.S. SMEs.

Cowbell’s underwriting improves risk selection, validated by below-industry reported claims (less than 1 percent), and responds in near real-time to emerging threats without losing speed in its ability to present quotes and issue policies.

“Cowbell’s cyber insurance platform brought innovation, efficiencies, and robust cyber coverage to the market as we developed the industry’s largest cyber insurance distribution network,” said Jack Kudale, founder and CEO at Cowbell Cyber. “With the launch of Cowbell Re, we are directly taking on risk and reiterating our commitment to empower businesses to minimize cyber incidents.”

Cowbell Re gives the company more flexibility in addressing expanding demand from its growing distribution network of 2,000 agencies and 12,000 producers nationwide. With Cowbell’s closed-loop approach to risk management – Assess, Insure, Improve – bolstering the company’s aggressive loss control strategy, along with its precision in underwriting, Cowbell Re further supports Cowbell’s expected growth trajectory, while helping keep loss ratios at the lowest in the industry.

The resources, bundled at no charge in Cowbell’s cyber policies, help empower businesses to be proactive in eliminating risk exposures.
