Level 3 Communications, Inc. today announced that it has been selected to manage the contingency site of CAIXA SEGUROS Group as part of an expanded contract with the organization. According to the agreement, Level 3 will manage a disaster recovery solution between Cotia, São Paulo, and the Group’s primary site in Brasília.

CAIXA SEGUROS will use Level 3’s data center as a new operational contingency site in the event of business-impacting disasters to ensure the security and resiliency of its customers’ information. While Level 3 already provides storage solutions for the group, the expanded agreement offers CAIXA SEGUROS protected data storage in a facility with the network accessibility and power reliability necessary to provide seamless service to its nine million customers worldwide. Level 3 will be responsible for managing the contingency site, while the infrastructure team of CAIXA SEGUROS will focus on the internal demand related to insurance and other services provided by the company.

“With this Level 3 data center acting as a contingency site for critical customer information and services, we can assure even more availability and security for our customers. In the event of a cut off in the Group’s main system, the backup environment will automatically be activated, avoiding technology failure or any service disruption for our customers,” said Dominique Dieuzaide, CIO for CAIXA SEGUROS.

“The intelligent contingency plan developed by Level 3 to CAIXA SEGUROS brought an awareness in the internal IT staff for the consumption of professional services, while optimizing the productivity of the area," said Lincoln Moreira, Executive Manager of Infrastructure for CAIXA SEGUROS.
CAIXA SEGUROS is a private organization dedicated to protection in the insurance, social security, capitalization, consortium, health and dental insurance industries. CNP Assurances, a leader in the insurance market based in France, and Caixa Econômica Federal, one of the largest federally owned banks in Brazil, are shareholders of the company.

“The implementation of these services on a mainframe platform for CAIXA SEGUROS demonstrates Level 3’s ability to support the growing need among enterprises for efficient, reliable and secure access to critical data even in the most dire of circumstances,” said Marcos Malfatti, senior vice president of Sales for Level 3 in Brazil. “For this kind of project, complete confidence between customer and supplier is crucial. We are delighted to know that CAIXA SEGUROS trusts the work and professionalism of Level 3 enough to grow our relationship.”
