El Segundo, Calif.-based Computer Sciences Corp., a consulting and information technology services firm, has launched a strategic alliance with Austin, Texas-based software technology provider InfoGlide Corp. The agreement calls for the cooperative development and marketing of fraud detection products and services for the property and casualty insurance market. Additionally, InfoGlide has granted CSC exclusive global rights to resell the company's Fraud Investigator software, an application developed specifically for the property and casualty insurance Special Investigations Unit (SIU) market. Because insurance fraud is a $26 billion per year problem, many states have mandated that insurers establish SIUs to implement anti-fraud programs.Fort Worth, Texas-based insurance agency InsureZone has acquired AgentSecure Enterprises Inc., a provider of Web-based insurance service designed for small and rural commercial agents.

AgentSecure's business model revolves around establishing exclusive marketing alliances with state associations within the independent insurance agency system. Last October, it launched a Web site, www.agentsecure.com, to enable rural agents to better serve customers. InsureZone, a "clicks-and-mortar" insurance agency, offers small commercial coverage online and offline through partnerships with major banks and Web portals. AgentSecure.com has established working relationships with such carriers as CNA, The Hartford and Zurich North America.

Using proprietary technology to streamline the application and policy-writing process, ePolicy says it is able to deliver high-quality insurance products in a matter of minutes instead of days.
