Jury results about startups
The jury concluded that MMOX can play a significant role in securing the SMBs in the Netherlands. “MMOX has found the right balance between external cybersecurity-monitoring (CERT) and partnership with insurers. They are an affordable solution with guarantees, this is something that appeals to SMBs. They are starting to build a strong client base.” (Read more about the jury review). In addition to successfully introducing a product (cybersecurity), traditionally difficult within the SMB, the numbers presented and the knowledge demonstrated by MMOX made a very professional impression.”
Supplier of the Year
For the nomination of Supplier of the Year for SMBs, there were a total of 19 entries submitted. MMOX and Nationale-Nederlanden are among the final 10. According to the jury, “it is exceptional that the insurer and the cyber specialist in The Hague jointly introduced a Cyber Security solution for SMBs.

The concept has been applied already by large companies and governments and has now been made suitable for SMBs as well.
