Ascent Underwriting, a trading division of insurance broker Safeonline, has launched a general liability coverage extension for small and mid-market business clients, as part of its new coverage initiatives.

The new coverage, which complement’s Ascent’s products for professional and non-tangible risks, is designed to link the gap between business risks related to cyber threats and more traditional general liability exposures.

In addition, the coverage will also offer a network security and professional risks solution with extra coverage modules for general liability written on an occurrence basis with a separate limit of indemnity.

Ascent director Gareth Tungatt said, "Ascent’s ability to offer a comprehensive solution will eliminate some grey areas of coverage between cyber and traditional policies and ensure clients have access to comprehensive protection for both their current exposures and emerging risks."
