Based in the Lloyd’s of London building, Atrium Underwriters is a long-established leading specialist insurance and reinsurance business. Operating within the Lloyd’s market and with a history dating back to the 1930’s, Atrium Underwriters are security conscious to their core. Like many companies in the insurance sector, data security is paramount to their business. Over the last 12 years BlueFort has partnered with the IT team. Within this time, BlueFort has introduced innovative solutions to strengthen Atrium’s data security posture; working to defend against and minimise the potential effects of a breach.
Noticing a recent increase in appetite for home working, Atrium approached BlueFort to discuss their plans to implement cloud-based infrastructure and BYOD as they had some concerns about delivering a positive user experience while ensuring that their data security wasn’t compromised. After listening to Atrium’s requirements, BlueFort recommended solutions including RSA’s Identity based Multi-Factor Authentication and MobileIron’s Enterprise Mobility Management which have helped Atrium maintain their strong security posture without compromising the user’s experience.
Commenting on this, Garry Lewis, Head of IT at Atrium Underwriters explains, “RSA is a great authentication platform, because we can now extend it to authenticate cloud applications as well as our traditional remote access use cases. Atrium is going through a lot of change so it’s great for both our IT team and our end users that we can use technology that we are familiar with and we can be assured that it’s secure. BlueFort were on hand throughout the process for any queries that we had.”
