Corvus Insurance, a Boston-based InsurTech company that empowers commercial insurance brokers and policyholders to predict and prevent complex risks, today announces the expansion of its product line with Smart Tech E&O, a data-enabled Tech E&O and Cyber Liability policy. The product helps brokers and policyholders to better predict and prevent risk through automated IT security analysis, industry benchmarking and ongoing monitoring, in addition to providing the components of a conventional Tech E&O/Cyber Insurance policy. Corvus writes Smart Tech E&O with Crum & Forster and targets most technology-based services companies earning up to $1 billion in annual revenue.

Smart Tech E&O™ joins Corvus’s line of Smart Commercial Insurance® products, which includes Smart Cyber Insurance®, Smart Cyber Excess™ , and Smart Cargo + Cyber™. Each Corvus product provides transparent underwriting and Dynamic Loss Prevention® (DLP) reports with detailed IT security information. With its DLP reports, Corvus provides cybersecurity benchmarking and actionable IT recommendations for each account.

“At Corvus, we work to knock down the walls separating brokers and their clients from innovation,” said Phil Edmundson, founder and CEO of Corvus. “With Smart Tech E&O™, we do this by monitoring IT security assets and providing actionable IT security recommendations. This aligns our interests with our brokers and policyholders. Together, we can use innovative products like Smart Tech E&O™ to lower the cost of risk and make the world safer.”

The underwriting process for Smart Tech E&O™ relies on the company’s Corvus Scan™, which gathers data from organizations' web-facing IT infrastructure. The scan compares an insured's IT Security to the Corvus database of cyber events. This underwriting process, automated and powered by machine learning, allows Corvus to offer brokers a shorter Cyber Insurance application. Corvus uses this data to produce a Smart Score™ and actionable IT security recommendations, enabling commercial insurance brokers and their clients to better predict and mitigate risk. For accounts with the best scores, Corvus offers insurance with lower prices and broader coverage. Ongoing monitoring and regular reports provide value beyond throughout the policy year.

In addition, the Smart Tech E&O™ policy form contains broad 1st party and 3rd party insuring agreements and includes enhanced coverage for Contingent Business Interruption, System Failure, Social Engineering Attacks, Ransomware, Reputational Loss and Multimedia Liability.

Corvus is offering Smart Tech E&O™ in partnership with Crum & Forster, a leading national property and casualty insurer. Crum & Forster is Rated “A” Excellent by A.M. Best.
