Liongard and Cork Announce Strategic Cybersecurity Collaboration

Liongard, known for its expertise in Configuration Change Detection and Response (CCDR), has entered into a partnership with Cork, a cyber warranty specialist catering to Managed Service Providers (MSPs) focused on small businesses and their software solutions. 

This move aligns with the notable 50% surge in cyber insurance premiums in 2022, a trend influenced by increased ransomware attacks and the growth of online commerce, according to a Bloomberg report.

Liongard's CCDR platform, combined with Cork's cyber warranty offering, aims to strengthen businesses' cybersecurity measures. One standout feature of Cork's offering, termed "Protection from the Inside Out", provides swift financial settlements after security incidents, which may enhance the confidence of MSP customers.

Liongard's CCDR platform emphasizes configuration change detection, enabling MSPs to safeguard client environments actively. The Cork warranty solution will be accessible to both existing and new Liongard platform partners.
