As an MGA, Converge merges cyber insurance, security, and technology to provide cyber insurance and effective cyber protection.
Converge uses a data ecosystem supported by professional underwriting to offer accurate cyber risk solutions that boost outcomes for its clients including small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs).
In July 2023, insurer QBE North America forged a partnership with Converge to introduce a cyber insurance programme under which the latter will serve as a programme administrator.
Converge is the third firm focusing on the cyber insurance market to be incubated by Forgepoint.
