We’re pleased to announce that award-winning motor insurance underwriters Direct Commercial (DCL) have signed a new contract with us.
Specialising in commercial motor insurance, DCL is a long-standing PSU customer, with IT services including hosting and Office 365, plus Mitel maintenance.
We have recently secured a new contract to host DCL's infrastructure on our Reliance 2 Managed IaaS platform, providing them with the performance they require to deliver critical business applications and services.
This is being expanded with a further contract to support the deployment of a new multi-factor authentication service with conditional access. This enhanced security feature will require users to provide additional information to verify their identity before logging in. Alongside this, conditional access will ensure users already on the DCL network are not asked to authenticate. This additional IT security will be delivered via an app on the users’ phones.
DCL’s hosting is on our Reliance 2 platform, which offers Managed Infrastructure-as-a-Service. The managed element makes Reliance 2 stand out from traditional IaaS solutions by taking away the headache of managing the operating system and constant updates.
