9. Cyber Risk Insurtech of the Year

Nominee: Evolve MGA

Evolve’s Dark Web Scanning technology, proactively proves that all businesses have a cyber exposure, helping brokers sell cyber insurance to the tricky client that “doesn’t believe they can get hacked.” Included on every cyber quote proposal, business owners are getting up front access to their employees information that has already been breached. The average American has 90 accounts online. Most people do not realize that hackers attack these companies all the time to steal credentials and take advantage of businesses. This has been an absolute game changer for brokers dealing with businesses owners that do not believe they have a cyber exposure!
