Ontinue, a provider of AI-powered extended managed detection and response (MXDR) services, has struck a partnership deal with Antigen Security, a cyber risk management firm, intended to improve the cybersecurity posture of customers and reduce insurance costs.

Introducing Titan Defense Complete

The agreement has produced Titan Defense Complete, powered by Ontinue ION MXDR. Titan Defense Complete is a security solution that helps companies of all sizes effectively manage cyber risk. It does so by combining Ontinue ION MXDR with Antigen Incident Response services plus financial protection in the form of cyber liability insurance.

The joint solution has been vetted and certified by multiple cyber insurance carriers, making customers who use it eligible to save up to 90% on their cyber insurance premiums, the companies said in a prepared statement.

Commenting on the partnership, Chris Raniere, Ontinue chief revenue officer, said:

"Antigen is an ideal partner, offering industry-leading capabilities in incident response (IR) and recovery engineering that complement our ION MXDR service, while enabling customers to dramatically reduce their cyber insurance costs. Many of our customers are interested in bolstering their security portfolio with IR services, and we are excited to recommend a partner like Antigen, which has been pre-approved by several major cyber insurance carriers to perform IR work for their clients."

More Offerings from Antigen and Ontinue

In addition to offering Titan Defense Complete, Antigen and Ontinue will offer the following services:

  • The companies will refer existing customers and prospects to each other. For Antigen, this includes its IR Consulting services, which helps companies experiencing an active breach contain, remediate and recover their environments.
  • Antigen offers its Rapid Response IR Retainer service, which allows companies to preemptively purchase an IR service retainer so Antigen can immediately respond should a company experience a breach.

Steven Legg, Antigen chief executive and co-founder, explained that vetting is key to the partnership:

"With Antigen Titan Defense Complete, powered with Ontinue ION MXDR, we are providing companies with a vetted security solution that fulfills insurers' requirements. This eliminates the time-consuming process to evaluate security vendors and allows customers to move quickly to improve their security postures, protect themselves from business-disrupting attacks and dramatically lower their cyber insurance costs."
