Secura are delighted to announce that TIW Group have selected the Virtual Private Cloud to support their business critical insurance applications.
TIW Group designs, builds and implements software solutions that service global clients from the insurance and reinsurance sector and with a rapidly growing solution portfolio and client list, they required a secure, scalable and highly available hosting solution to underpin their operations.
TIW Group specialise in building and implementing cloud-based SaaS solutions that allow simple, secure trading and information exchange for any type of insurance organisation.
Founded in 2005, the senior management team brought together expertise from the fields of insurance and technology to create solutions that applied technology to the industry in new ways, with a fresh perspective on how software can make an impact on what has been a very traditional industry.
TIW Group has since played a prominent role in assisting with insurance reforms, regulation and in particular, the processing of London Market risks, premiums and claims.
They have won several ACORD awards and more recently the Technology Initiative of the Year from the London Market Awards.
TIW Group offer a range of solutions to the insurance market that facilitate simple electronic requests for quotation, placing risks or processing endorsements, connecting their systems directly to brokers, cover holders and TPAs and making it simple to store, manage and access vital documents via the cloud with any device, at any location.
Their efficient platforms and solutions coupled with mobile delivery have revolutionised traditional insurance business processes and strategies.
The Secura Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) offers the high levels of performance and availability that TIW Group require to deliver secure, critical applications.
Architected with no single points of failure, high availability is standard across the platform, with additional resilience provided by VMware vSphere software offering automatic failover at virtual machine (VM) level.
This design gives TIW Group the assurance that their SaaS applications are going to deliver the high levels of availability that their global client base demand.
As the VPC is a multi-tennant environment, TIW Group can quickly add additional capacity to support new services and customers, as and when required. This flexbility, combined with the resource-based pricing model, ensures that TIW Group are in complete control of their platform and costs and can shape their infrastructure directly in proportion to new client services and company growth.
TIW Group applications exchange, store and support confidential client data, with billions of pounds worth of transactions flowing through their systems annually – so security was a primary consideration in the choice of any hosting partner and platform.
Secure by design, the Virtual Private Cloud is delivered from multiple Tier 3+ data centre facilities based in the UK, all with the highest levels of physical security. All of the data centres and Secura’s own data handling processes are ISO 27001 accredited.
