BOXX and Zurich Insurance Group launch innovative cyber protection app in Switzerland

BOXX Insurance Inc., an award-winning global InsurTech that combines cyber insurance and security, has partnered with Zurich Insurance Group in Switzerland to introduce a cutting-edge cyber risk solution.

This collaboration aims to provide digital protection for individuals and families.

The partnership between BOXX and Zurich Insurance was established to address the critical need for comprehensive protection against digital threats. The companies have developed a user-friendly solution to help individuals and families better predict and prevent potential scams and digital threats.

BOXX Insurance, known for its innovative approach to cyber security, and Zurich Insurance, a leading global insurer, have designed an app that offers a personalized digital safety experience. The app is available in Switzerland, supporting English, German, French, and Italian, and features an easy-to-use interface.

The app provides essential services to prevent digital threats and offers emergency assistance. Key features include identity protection, a secure VPN, secure WiFi, safe browsing, device protection, a password manager, and edutainment to raise awareness of personal cyber security. It also offers emergency support and assistance from cyber security experts for IT-related problems.

Vishal Kundi, CEO and Founder of BOXX Insurance, said, “We created this to give individuals and families what they want – an app that delivers an essential bundle of tools at users fingertips including access to experts in the event of a cyber emergency.

“Smartphones have become the fastest-selling gadgets in history. They have penetrated every aspect of daily life. The average person picks their phone up to 100 times a day so if we want to make their world a digitally safer place, we have to ensure their phone and their usage is better secured.”

René Harlacher, Chief Underwriting Officer of Zurich Insurance in Switzerland, added, “An extensive research conducted by Zurich Insurance in Switzerland showed that many are not aware of online dangers and that around a quarter have already been victims of a cyber-attack. In addition, customers are simply overwhelmed with the range of cyber products.

“At Zurich, it’s our mission to go beyond mere protection, and also offer our customers tools to help them build resilience and implement preventative measures against cyber risks. Based on these facts, we are expanding our cyber offering for private individuals so that we can provide them with support before, during and after a possible cyber-attack. This is exactly where our joint offering with BOXX Insurance comes in, as a way to lend additional support to our customers.”
