Insurance IT Services: Reduce Downtime and Keep Your Data SecureIt is known that insurance companies and agencies deal with a considerable amount of their clients' personal data. Therefore, their task is to keep that data safe and protected from potential theft and loss that would cost them a lot of money.

To reduce potential delays and downtime while sharing the files, you're advised to consider insurance IT services that will help your business go seamlessly. By minimizing downtime and keeping your data secure from unauthorized access, your insurance company or agency can experience significant improvements in terms of business performance and client satisfaction.

Insurance IT Services: HIPAA & NIST CompliancesInsurance companies possess tons of confidential information about their clients, which puts them at risk of being a target of malicious activities conducted by hackers. Accordingly, the government has set the regulations about cybersecurity and data protection with which insurance companies need to comply to gain awareness about information safety. Such regulations are listed in HIPAA and NIST frameworks, whose goal is to help state insurance regulators understand cybersecurity risks and find ways to prevent their further execution. These documents contain guidelines on how to identify risks, how to mitigate them, and what to do in case of data breaches. So, what is our task here? Both HIPAA and NIST are quite comprehensive documents, whose understanding requires the assistance of a professional IT guy who’ll be ready to lead a client through the regulations and do the necessary system analysis to determine potential risks and their elimination. A failure to comply with HIPAA or NIST often brings severe consequences to companies, which may be obliged to pay a legal fine that may cost them up to $4 million. Such events may affect a company’s reputation and business performance, bringing long-term effects. It’s vital to know that all insurance companies should be NIST-compliant, while those that issue health insurance must comply with the rules listed in HIPAA.
Cloud Computing Solutions for InsurersCloud computing has become the most convenient solution for offices, regardless of the job a company’s performing. It has significantly facilitated the workflow, sharing data among staff, and most importantly, it has developed the most advanced security features. We know how important it is to communicate with your clients and staff seamlessly, even while working outside the office. Therefore, our awarded IT company offers the following solutions that can help you enhance communication with your team:
- Microsoft Office 365 is a multifunctional solution that includes cloud versions of Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Microsoft Teams, and other essential platforms used for everyday office work. It’s convenient for completing tasks on the go and maintaining communication with your team, even from your smartphone.
- Microsoft Azure is a more comprehensive platform that provides an enterprise-like experience you will enjoy. You’ll have an opportunity to store all your critical business data on an intelligent, trusted and secure cloud premise without breaking a bank.
Backup and Data RecoveryWhen you handle tons of confidential data, you must be prepared for unforeseen events that could cause permanent data loss. To prevent that, you should implement an adequate and efficient backup solution that will help you recover the information lost due to a computer and system fail, natural disaster, employee’s mistake, or cyberattacks. We’re offering you three backup and data recovery options in case something goes wrong:
- On-site backup: To make sure you can restore your computer and server to the previous state, you can count on on-site backup. It includes downloading data from your server and storing it on the external hard drive, which means that you can access it at any time.
- Off-site backup: Such backup is usually done weekly or monthly, depending on your business needs.
- Cloud backup: You can do cloud backup as many times as you find it convenient. It’s quite a suitable choice for storing files and folders that contain data about your company and clients.
Network Security for Insurance CompaniesNow that business and communication are mostly done over the Internet, you must make sure your network is a safe place for completing your job. Cyberattacks can cause a lot of problems that may affect your business, which is why you should never ignore any suspicious activity in your system. Since we're specialized in the field of cybersecurity, we can recommend the installation of the following software to your system in order to stay protected from advanced malware:
- Antivirus software: The installation of business antivirus software will provide enough protection from the most innovative types of malware, including ransomware, adware, spyware, Trojans, phishing and more.
- Endpoint protection: Server antivirus is critical for protecting your confidential business data stored on your server. However, if you’re utilizing less than 10 workstations, you may not need this type of protection.

Managed IT Services for Insurance Companies and AgenciesManaged IT services are also known as outsourcing, which means that they include third-party companies that will do the IT job for your firm. Such companies are quite a suitable solution for businesses that don’t want to waste their time, money and nerves doing something that has nothing to do with their core profession. Secure Networks ITC delivers the most prominent managed IT services for your insurance company that’s about to grow and develop.
