Spear Technologies, the first and only insurance solutions provider to develop applications using the Microsoft Power Platform, today announced the launch of SpearCloud, the company’s new cloud hosting environment and related services.
SpearCloud is built using Microsoft Azure, which means security is built in from the ground up. Spear customers automatically gain the benefit and backing of Microsoft’s team of security and compliance experts, and the ongoing innovation provided by this team.
Insurance organizations may choose to host their insurance solution on SpearCloud for two main reasons: 1) they may be looking for a convenient means to transition to SpearClaims, the company’s flagship claims solution, or 2) they be looking for a better experience with a cloud hosting vendor.
“Many organizations currently on legacy claims systems are finding that existing vendors are abandoning support – or they’re threatening to halt support when they learn a customer is switching to a different solution,” said
“In another scenario, an organization might have an insurance system hosted on another vendor’s cloud and want to make a shift for an overall better experience,” said
“Besides the typical benefits of leveraging a cloud hosting environment – such as avoiding the expense of on-premises hardware, network equipment, and in-house IT staff – we also gain access to Spear’s very experienced IT team to both support our legacy claims system and help us transition to SpearClaims. And all of this enables us to stay focused on our customers and provide them with a high level of service,” said
SpearCloud offers a unique combination of hosted services including:
- A production environment based on the client’s data and storage requirements.
- Support of a legacy system, provided by the Spear Technologies team.
- Data encryption at rest using Azure
Key Vault, Data Encryption Keys, and Key Encryption Keys– all of which ensures security and confidentiality of protected health information (PHI) and personal identifiable information (PII) in the hosted environment.
- Around-the-clock monitoring and maintenance by Spear’s IT experts.
- Read and write access within the production system via a secure virtual private network (VPN).
