Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) announced that its cybersecurity solutions, the HPE-exclusive silicon root of trust and the Aruba Policy Enforcement Firewall (PEF), have been recognized for their ability to reduce risk by insurers in the Cyber CatalystSM program created by Marsh, a global leader in insurance broking and risk management. Cyber Catalyst is Marsh’s new cybersecurity evaluation program that enables customers that adopt designated technologies to be considered for enhanced t******************* on cyber insurance policies from participating insurers.

The average cost of cybercrime for an organization is $13 million, according to a recent report by Accenture. Cyber insurers, with extensive experience in responding to catastrophic and costly cyber events, are constantly searching for effective ways to help businesses strengthen their security position.

The Cyber Catalyst program brings together eight of the world’s leading cyber insurers to evaluate cybersecurity products and services and identify those solutions they believe can be effective at improving cybersecurity posture and reducing cyber risk. The program followed a rigorous, multi-stage evaluation process in which each of the participating insurers assessed cybersecurity solutions’ ability to address major risks like data breach, business interruption, data theft or corruption, and cyber extortion. A majority voted to designate the following HPE cybersecurity offerings as Cyber Catalyst solutions:

HPE-exclusive silicon root of trust:
 HPE provides the only industry-standard servers with a silicon root of trust capability built into the hardware, which prevents compromised firmware code from executing. The HPE Silicon Root of Trust is offered on HPE ProLiant servers, HPE Apollo systems, HPE Synergy Compute Modules, and HPE SimpliVity.

Aruba Policy Enforcement Firewall:
The Aruba Policy Enforcement Firewall thwarts unauthorized access to valuable or sensitive data through role-based user, device and application policies, and is an integral part of HPE’s strategy to provide a zero trust boundary at time of network access.
