PARIS 06-Oct-2016 — /EuropaWire/ — Atos, a leader in digital services through its technological brand Bull, and Marsh, one of the global leaders in insurance broking and consultancy in company risk management, have signed a partnership to provide an optimal and innovative response to the management of cyber risks for French corporations.
The number of cyber attacks is increasing exponentially every year, and is drastically impacting the digital transformation of large French corporations. Through their partnership, Atos and Marsh are creating a single entry point to a range of products and services in order to increase the value of investments in “cyber protection” and optimize the costs in “cyber insurance.” They provide a global response in the field of consultancy, brokerage, and technology, in order to find a solution for both the financial and technological risks that face companies affected by cyber threats.
Customized and tailored support as a result of this partnership covers the establishment of an environment to manage company cyber risks, the detection and evaluation of vulnerabilities, the processing of incidents, and their transfer to cyber risk insurance, as well as support with the management of damage and neutralization of cyber attacks to ensure everything gets back to normal as quickly as possible.
“Thanks to this partnership with Marsh, we will be able to provide an optimal response to our clients who are currently in the digital revolution and investing in solutions using the cloud, the Internet of things, or big data. We will help them to manage and control risks, and also protect their business environment 24/7 to effectively fight against cyber attacks. This agreement allows us to strengthen our development strategy for the Cyber Security products offered by the Group,” says Pierre Barnabé, Chief Operating Officer, Big Data and Security for the Atos Group.
For Stanislas Chapron, Chairman Corporations and Client Consultancy at Marsh Continental Europe, “This collaboration with Atos is enabling us to fully handle our clients’ risk exposure linked to IT systems, by combining the technical expertise of Atos with the expertise of Marsh: consultancy, management, and transfer of cyber risks.”
