“This milestone enables us to accelerate the pace of our innovation and better serve our brokerage partners and clients,” said Rotem Iram, co-founder and CEO of San Francisco-based At-Bay. “Becoming an insurance company reinforces our commitment to building the next generation of insurance and addressing the critical challenge of cyber and digital risk.”

At-Bay currently offers cyber insurance, technological errors and omissions and various professional liability insurance policies through wholesale brokers and digital channels. The company said it plans to issue policies through its carrier later this year.
At-Bay’s coverage and monitoring services “enables its more than 28,000 policyholders to proactively manage their digital risks. As a result, At-Bay customers experience 5x fewer ransomware attacks compared to the industry average.”
