Amica Insurance Selects UltraDNS for Enhanced Network Security and Manageability

Amica Insurance, the oldest mutual insurer of automobiles in the United States, announced today that it has selected UltraDNS' Managed DNS Service to deliver enhanced online functionality and network reliability. By deploying onto the UltraDNS platform, Amica improves the reliability and capacity of its online claim-reporting and insurance-quoting services.

Amica's mission is to enhance the financial security of its customers by offering personal insurance protection and other related services at the lowest reasonable cost, consistent with sound financial management. As a customer-centric company, Amica is migrating many business applications to the Internet to give its customers the best possible service and convenience of use. By implementing UltraDNS' managed services, Amica is also able to protect its customers from Internet security vulnerabilities, including pharming and network threats that could present financial dangers.

"The manageability and network security of the UltraDNS service were key criteria in making the decision to move to UltraDNS. We gain all the advantages of a managed service while retaining granular control over our DNS records," said Ron Rivet, Network Operations Manager, Amica. "The UltraDNS user portal allows us to delegate responsibility of domains to various users, making it easy for our administrators to publish DNS changes and manage our entries across the organization."

Backed by an industry leading network uptime Service Level Agreement (SLA), Amica Insurance leverages UltraDNS' fully fault-tolerant, global directory infrastructure to provide critical layers of network security, reliability and management. Utilizing the UltraDNS advanced management portal, Amica can seamlessly modify DNS records and have the changes propagated globally in near real time.

"We are pleased to add Amica to the growing list of enterprises that recognize the vital role UltraDNS solutions play in securing Internet-based operations."
