Axio’s New Partnership with NFP Expands Cybersecurity Capabilities

Published by Axio

Axio is excited to announce our partnership with NFP. NFP is a leading insurance broker and consultant with expertise in employee benefits, property and casualty, retirement, and individual solutions. With this partnership, Axio released a new platform Axio360 QuickQuant, to expand cybersecurity capabilities.

This partnership will give insurance buyers for community banks, a holistic view of their cybersecurity risks. Axio360 QuickQuant will allow users to benchmark their insurance program limits against NFP’s client portfolio of over 200 banks. This will allow users to identify and address gaps and refine their program.

“The Axio360 QuickQuant platform was built to fundamentally redefine how community banks solve cybersecurity problems by using real-life cyber events to enable business-centric decision making by putting the risk in financial terms,” said Scott Kannry, CEO for Axio. “Our operating system aligns all key constituents and delivers clarity in real-time. This partnership with NFP allows our software to deliver a simple and effective process to overcoming cyber challenges.”

“Cyber risk remains a significant challenge and requires that we evaluate our client’s overall exposures from a first- and third-party perspective,” said Akhil Chopra, managing director and head of NFP’s cyber and network security practice. “Axio360 QuickQuant aids in this process by stress testing existing policies and analyzing peer group data to help us create tailor-made insurance solutions. Preparation is critical and we are excited to be working with Axio to enhance our ability to prepare our insureds for potential cyber events.

“The cybersecurity needs of community banks remain highly underserved, primarily because many insurance brokers either don’t understand the inherent complexities or try to overstate their capabilities,” said Mark Flippen, managing director of NFP’s financial institutions group. “We have the expertise to address the fundamental queries buyers have, helping community bank leaders understand their cyber risks, decipher what it is they’re actually buying, and fix any gaps in their existing coverage. Our value is driven by specialized technical advice and exceptional ongoing service, and the Axio360 QuickQuant platform complements this value in ways that will benefit our community bank clients.

We’re excited to be partnering with NFP and are looking forward to what’s ahead. Read the full press release here.
