Aon and HP Inc. are partnering to promote blended business continuity, disaster recovery, IT security and cyber risk management services.

The “holistic” solution from Aon and HP encompasses hardware-level security protection, risk assessment and remediation, incident response, and options for enhanced cyber insurance coverage. The solution is available through the HP Device as a Service (DaaS) offering, which provides multi-OS device management support and advanced analytics and proactive management capabilities, the company says.

The integrated set of risk management tools includes:

  • Aon Cyber Resilience Evaluation: Aon's cybersecurity professionals will use Aon's proprietary assessment tool to evaluate a company's cybersecurity posture and provide recommendations to improve defenses.
  • HP DaaS: Allows businesses to offload the task of supporting, securing, and managing multiple devices. The service provides analytics and proactive management service that offers actionable analytics and fleet insights to uncover potential device health and security risks.
  • Aon Premier Cyber Insurance Panel: Deploying HP's DaaS and conducting Aon's Cyber Resilience Evaluation will enable companies to qualify for enhanced cyber insurance coverage.
  • Aon Incident Response Services: Organizations will have access to Aon's incident response team in the event of an attack, including incident response retainers.

"Combining Aon's deep cybersecurity capabilities and risk management solutions with HP's world-class security features and device management capabilities through HP DaaS further enhances our ability to meet changing customer needs," said Christoph Schell, president, Americas Region, HP.

The Aon-HP joint offering is expected to launch in fall 2018. Initially, the offering will be available directly from HP and through channel partners in the U.S. only, becoming available outside of the U.S. over the next year, the companies say.
