Encrypt email, audit data movements and manage virtual machines.

Effective security for the insurance sector.

Personally Identifiable Information sits at the heart of every Insurance database. Your precious data asset poses many risks. Each record has a value. Criminals strive tirelessly to access or steal details for re-sale or fraudulent use.

Insurers have a duty of care – to customers, intermediaries and regulators alike. The Financial Services Authority exacts specific industry requirements for compliance. Companies in breach face costly fines - and shattered reputations.

Directives such as the 2007 Anti Money Laundering Regulations have increased the need for due diligence checks and storage of results. Both Insurers and their IFA intermediary and broker supply chains must maintain robust, secure data security practices and controls to satisfy specific operating requirements - such as those detailed in the Personal Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard.

From pioneering standardised email encryption, to data audit and control solutions, to managing security across virtual machines – these are just some of the ways Trend Micro is reducing insurance risk.

Encrypt email across your agent network.
Protecting sensitive communications.

Unlike other network traffic, email is inherently insecure.

Entire email message contents are sent in ‘blocks’. If intercepted, sensitive contents can be read. 87% of UK life and pensions companies and their IFA networks don’t have secure email systems. Over half are waiting for an industry standard to be put in place.*

In partnership with Origo, the UK’s financial services industry body, Trend Micro is rolling out this vital email encryption solution - allowing confidential client data to be exchanged quickly and securely whilst preventing data leakage and loss.

Powered by Trend Micro’s advanced encryption technology, Unipass Securemail will work with any email client or mailbox. The system is easy to use and ubiquitous. No pre-enrolment or exchange of keys needed - simply a one-time registration on first use. Insurance industry licensing ensures the service is free for all your IFAs and their clients.

Audit and control employee compliance.
Tracking how your data is moved.

Whether data is at rest, in use or on the move, as an insurer you and your supply chain need to recognise your security vulnerabilities and regulatory duties.

The difficulty comes with measuring and quantifying diverse, far-reaching security issues. Trend Micro understands that Audit and Control sit at the heart of mitigating the risks raised by compliance requirements.

Our Audit interventions help to identify where data is held, which data is sensitive and if it is adequately protected – for example encrypted. With the ability to regularly scan employees’ laptops, for example, you can produce an inventory of all instances of Personally Identifiable Information – and act to eliminate exposure and risk. You can also map the movement of data, revealing potential vulnerabilities or compliance conflicts.

Trend Micro’s Control interventions provide the ability to monitor, investigate, report and manage threats. Our technologies can discover if a system has been hacked or exposed to malware and report where data was moved or if it was changed. Coupled with wide ranging solutions for data leak protection, policy-based validation and enforcement, and email encryption, we can help you meet your compliance requirements – efficiently and cost-effectively.

Maximise savings with secure virtualisation.
Consolidating your data centres.

Many insurers are turning to server virtualisation to reduce data centre costs. Virtual machines offer attractive benefits: lower energy consumption and emissions, lower capital expenditure through more cost-effective use of hardware resources, easier management and faster disaster recovery.

But virtualisation also poses unique security risks. The multiple virtual machine guests co-hosted on the same physical server each demands its own malware security. Typical anti-malware solutions are not ‘virtually aware’. A simultaneous full system scan can significantly degrade host performance.

Virtual environments are especially vulnerable when virtual machines are dormant or offline. Conventional VM security solutions can’t scan or update dormant machines. When the machines are brought online, virus pattern files are out of date - they may already be infected with malware. Further, in high-use environments such as insurance and financial services, patching windows have either been minimised or eliminated. This leaves virtual machines vulnerable to attack and compromise from both within and outside the host environment.

Trend Micro offers content security solutions specifically designed to meet these virtualised data centre challenges. Our layered core protection uses dedicated scanning virtual machines coupled with real-time patching agents within each virtual machine, shielding data from threats and providing updates seamlessly on-the-fly.
