Fireman's Fund Insurance Co. has signed a five-year, $42 million contract with AT&T to develop a secure, high-speed, integrated network. AT&T's design and management of an Internet Protocol Virtual Private Network (IP VPN) will provide 4,500 employees in 60 FFIC locations across the U.S. with faster access to data on premiums, claims, insurance quotes and other critical customer information.

Thee new network, which replaces several disparate voice and data networks provided by multiple vendors, will also support Fireman Fund's mission-critical applications, expanding the company's range of services both internally and externally. A key benefit of the new network will be the consolidation of an integrated voice-and-data system, allowing 60 different Fireman's Fund office locations nationwide to share a common communications platform, providing for significant time, service and control efficiency.  The insurer will also deploy AT&T's Internet Protect to continuously and proactively monitor the network for potential cyber-security breaches.
