Today, on the European Data Privacy Day, Nationale-Nederlanden and MMOX launch MMOX Smart. The first all-in-one cyber protection service for SMEs: smart software with a recovery service and insurance. The starting point of the service is complete unburdening of the entrepreneur when it comes to cyber security.
‘At the innovation lab of Nationale-Nederlanden, Sparklab, we have been conducting cyber security pilots with SMEs via the Dutch Cyber Collective for some time now. What we learn from these experiences with entrepreneurs is that they either want to maintain control themselves or preferably outsource everything’, says Kokke van der Werf, director of NN Sparklab. ‘MMOX Smart was developed for the latter group. In 2019, you can't escape looking at cyber security seriously. Together with MMOX, we developed a way to do this without the entrepreneur having to worry about it.’
Suitable for SMEs
Matthijs Blokker, director of MMOX, confirms this. ‘MMOX Smart is a box with smart software that is connected as a gatekeeper for the company network. It is the translation of a successful MMOX product that has been protecting corporates and (government) institutions against cyber attacks for years. It detects potential threats before they enter the network. It filters out what does not belong in the network. MMOX Smart is suitable for networks of all shapes and sizes and is therefore extremely suitable for SMEs’, says Blokker.
Reimbursement and insurance
‘In addition to the technology, we also offer insurance’, says Van der Werf. ‘We want to fully support the entrepreneur in the field of cyber security. An important factor in this is that they do not have to wonder what happens if something does slip through the net.’ The cooperation of Sparklab with MMOX Smart guarantees the entrepreneur that any damage will be repaired by MMOX experts or by experts from the entrepreneur's IT supplier. These costs will be reimbursed. The insurance covers not just the costs of repairs but also costs of indirect damage. An insurance of Hiscox is used to this end.
