Earlier this week, Westland teamed up with BOXX Insurance to offer cyber insurance to homeowners in Canada.
Under the alliance, Westland will give its customers access to BOXX Insurance’s cybersecurity and insurance solution, called Cyberboxx.
Cyberboxx policy includes a suite of cyber tools designed to block online threats.
Among other things, it also offers insurance against identity theft, cyberstalking, cyberattacks, and data breaches.
In July this year, Westland acquired Andrew Agencies to expand its presence in the central Canada region.
