Protecting SMEs from cyber risk is the ambition of the French startup Dattak, which has just raised 7 million euros from XAnge and business angels, including Matthieu Bébéar (ex-Chief Business Officer at Axa). InsurTech wants to respond to an increasingly important issue among SMEs, as 50% of SMEs that are closed for several weeks after a cyber attack go bankrupt within 6 months, according to a study carried out in 2019 by the UK insurer Hiscox.
Launched in December 2021 by Benoit Grouchko and Charlotte Couallier, Dattak implements an insurance product for VSEs and SMEs that aims to compensate them in the event of a cyber attack, but also a technology that reduces these risks. The start-up is aimed directly at brokers. The technology it has developed allows them to obtain a quote in just one minute with a fully digital subscription process.
“We provide insurance intermediaries with cyber insurance products adapted and flexible for SMEs”explains Benoit Grouchko, CEO and co-founder of Dattak. “We also rely on the technology that will profile the customer business to offer them an appropriate insurance premium.”
With about fifteen employees, Dattak aims to double its workforce in the coming months by recruiting sales representatives, insurance expert profiles and engineers. “We will continue to invest in product development, whether from an insurance or cyber security perspective. We will also accelerate our development from a commercial point of view. »
