Veracode certifies Intellect SEEC’s commitment in developing secure business applications
New York and Chennai, September 19th 2016 — Intellect SEEC, the insurance software division of Intellect Design Arena earns the VerAfied status for its product Intellect Risk Analyst. The newly achieved status demonstrates that Intellect is committed to developing secure software products and digital platforms for their customers, shortening the company’s sales cycle and giving them a competitive advantage over companies offering similar solutions.
The VerAfied status offered by Veracode demonstrates that Intellect SEEC is actively identifying and remediating vulnerabilities to provide its customers with one of the highest levels of software assurance and security verification. In addition to proving Intellect SEEC’s capability, it is a clear indicator to the customer base that the company’s security has met or exceeded industry standards for security, reliability and compliance.
Intellect Risk Analyst is the most advanced underwriting risk assessment tool in the industry. It applies highly advanced artificial intelligence, machine learning and line-of-business-specific underwriting rules and risk predictors to thousands of data sources and deep web searches. The result is a highly intuitive and interactive dashboard that summarizes everything an underwriter, analyst, actuary or an agent needs to know about a risk within minutes. Apart from providing an effective and efficient underwriting experience, Intellect wanted to ensure that its clients can rest assured that business critical data related to customer identity, sensitive bank and credit card information are fully protected and securely handled. In this direction, they pursued the VerAfied status, confident of its independent status.
Commenting on the certification, Pranav Pasricha, CEO, Intellect SEEC, Intellect Design Arena, said, “Insurers are preparing to better-serve customers and in that direction, they are majorly restructuring their technology infrastructure. Much like in other industries, insurance carriers too prefer IT-light and cloud-based solutions which has increased the likelihood of encountering complex security risks. Intellect follows secure development practices. In addition to the robust product experience, we want to extend the most secure environment in which sensitive and confidential information is exchanged. Achieving VerAfied status, an independent and third-party verification is a testimony to our commitment to providing a secure business environment.”
“We are finding that CIOs and CSOs are asking their purchasing teams to take security into consideration when procuring new applications. For this reason, it is important that software vendors find a way to demonstrate that their software is built using secure development practices,”said Chris Wysopal, CTO and CISO, Veracode. “The VerAfied mark tells the world that Intellect SEEC is assessing for application vulnerabilities and complying with industry standards, but more importantly, it lets their customers know Intellect SEEC is a vendor they can trust to keep their data secure.”
