Online security insurance provider Coalition has collected $10m in its Series A round.

Other products include funds transfer fraud, business interruption, ransomware, network breaches, system failure, and digital asset restoration, among others.

Clients also receive free cybersecurity solutions to help prevent any attacks, helping to monitor any customer’s breached passwords, ransomware protection, software patching, DDoS mitigation, threat monitoring and ethical hacking to find issues.

This equity injection will be used to support the growth the company’s engineering team, and expanding its risk management platform.

Coalition CEO and co-founder Joshua Motta said, “Solving cyber risk doesn’t mean solving security failures. It means allowing companies to embrace technology while remaining resilient to the risks that accompany it. We provide companies with free cybersecurity to prevent loss before it occurs, and expert response and comprehensive insurance coverage when all else fails.”
