Data center services firm IXEurope has sealed an agreement with London-based marketing consultancy IT Accord.com Ltd to promote the company’s services to the 450 companies affiliated to Lloyd’s of London.
Lloyd’s is the world’s leading insurance market, providing specialist insurance services to businesses in over 200 countries and territories. The Lloyd’s affiliate companies are keen to increase their levels of security and off-site storage, making IXEurope’s data center service of particular interest.
IXEurope works with enterprise and internet customers to provide data center infrastructure to house their IT systems more cost-effectively than through in-house provision. The benefits of this include optimized IT performance, improved systems availability and reduced corporate risk through improved regulatory compliance.
IXEurope has a number of innovative and very attractive services that would benefit insurance companies in Lloyd’s and the wider London market. As well as IXEurope’s data center service, we feel that business continuity could also be a highly-demanded option, commented IT Accord.com’s business development director, Brian Groves.
The UK insurance industry is under constant pressure to comply with new regulations, achieve higher levels of security and demonstrate robust business continuity planning: IXEurope can help in these areas, he continued.
IT Accord.com, which is itself based at Lloyd’s, will initiate a number of campaigns in 2007 and ensure that IXEurope is well represented at Lloyd’s.
