ANNAPOLIS JUNCTION, Md., July 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- PROTEUS Technologies (PROTEUS), an innovative leader in Cyber Security, and The Jacobs Company, an independent, commercial insurance brokerage firm, today announced its new strategic partnership. This partnership will bring PROTEUS' CyberVigilance™ services directly to the Jacobs Company client community to deliver cyber liability insurance as security risks continue to increase.
Mike Jacobs, CEO for The Jacobs Company, states, "By combining The Jacobs Company's extensive business experience and wealth of resources, with PROTEUS' CyberVigilance™solution, we can define exciting, new cybersecurity services for our diverse portfolio of clients from nearly every industry."
PROTEUS and The Jacobs Company recognize that many companies are now taking a closer look at the protection provided by cyber risk insurance policies as security breach incidents continue to increase and gain publicity, and as government agencies become more actively involved in policing the corporate response.
PROTEUS' CIO and Chief Technologist for CyberVigilance™, Eric Schlesinger, further emphasized that "Cyber security measures have advanced by leaps and bounds over the past decade, but unfortunately, cybercriminals have sharpened their game even more. Security breaches are now a fact of life together with taxes and death, but with this partnership, The Jacobs Company client community can better manage the risks related to a security breach and reduce the significant cost that can result from them."
Unlike other Cyber Security firms, PROTEUS takes a blended Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) 7-layer model and NIST Cybersecurity Framework approach thereby allowing customized engagements with each client, rather than the traditional one size fits all model to secure networks, systems, applications, and data. Methods are honed and strengthened by 15 years of experience focused on combating (defending, attacking, and exploiting) cyber threats within the Federal Intelligence Community, and specifically, the National Security Agency.
PROTEUS' CIO and Chief Technologist for CyberVigilance™ stated, "We're thrilled to be The Jacob Company's Cyber Partner while building upon our DOD/IC experience, and bringing that robust expertise into the Commercial market."
