In the last couple of weeks, cybersecurity firms WhiteHat and FireEye have begun to roll out product liability protections for their customers.
WhiteHat is enhancing its Sentinel Elite Web vulnerability assessment service, which offers full-refund warranty guarantee policy, by doubling breach loss coverage to $500,000.
Meanwhile, FireEye “has obtained US Department of Homeland Security certification of its Multi-Vector Virtual Execution engine and its Dynamic Threat Intelligence cloud offering under the agency’s SAFETY Act program, which protects its customers from lawsuits and other litigation in the wake of a major cyberattack.”
The idea of liability protection for security software customers has been floated for a while by security experts as a way to protect users whose products fail to stop bugs and cyber attacks.
