PRESS RELEASE: KYND recognised as a global Top 100 InsurTech innovator for second year in a row


Insur Tech 2022

2022 marks KYND’s second consecutive year of recognition in Fintech Global’s distinguished list highlighting the world’s 100 best-in-class companies operating in the InsurTech space.

KYND Limited, a leading provider of next-generation cyber risk management solutions, today announced it has been named in this year’s InsurTech100 for its innovative use of technology to help strengthen business cyber resilience and power growth in the cyber insurance market. This is the second consecutive year that KYND has earned a spot on the prestigious list organised by specialist research firm FinTech Global.

As the threat of devastating cyber-attacks increases, so does the demand for cyber insurance products. As a result, the global cyber insurance market is projected to grow from $11.9 billion in 2022 to $29.2 billion by 2027. But the combination of a shifting market, the ever-expanding digital threat landscape, and evolving insureds’ needs has driven the need for far more innovative solutions in the industry that can both effectively help tackle cyber risk and successfully harness this growing demand.

Being very aware of the sector’s persistent challenges, KYND has worked extensively to deliver next-generation cyber risk management technology for the benefit of every party in the cyber insurance value chain. Since its inclusion in the InsurTech100 in 2021, KYND has not only made sustained headway in the industry transforming the way insurers assess and manage cyber risk, but it has also undergone a significant expansion of its services, including the launch of the ground-breaking KYND READY.

Launched just under a year ago and having already received recognition from some of the world’s leading insurance firms, this first-of-its-kind risk management initiative was purpose-designed to accelerate and simplify cyber insurance processes for brokers and their clients. Through a combination of cutting-edge risk management technology and expert support, the KYND READY service enables organisations to effectively improve their cyber risk profile pre-submission/renewal to facilitate favourable risk transfer. Furthermore, its continuous monitoring and alerting capability firmly supports insureds in their efforts to maintain resilient cyber defences throughout the lifetime of their policy.

Andy Thomas, CEO and Founder of KYND, commented: “We’re incredibly honoured and proud to be recognised as one of the world’s leading InsurTech innovators for the third year in a row. Riddled with increasing threat volumes and more stringent underwriting assessments, cyber insurance remains difficult to navigate for brokers and their clients alike – despite its apparent necessity. That’s why at KYND, we’re challenging the convention that obtaining cyber coverage must be a complex process by delivering next-generation, frictionless solutions that unlock the power of proactive cyber risk management for businesses globally, enable successful cyber insurance applications, and drive profitable growth for our partners.”

Richard Sachar, CEO of Fintech Global, said: “.Faced with seismic shifts in consumer behaviour, the so-called “race to digitalise” and challenging market conditions, insurers have their work cut out for them. The InsurTech100 lists helps senior insurance executives in the industry filter through the noise in the market by highlighting the tech companies transforming sectors such as underwriting, embedded insurance, pricing, distribution and data & analytics.”
