Royal Sun Alliance has teamed with Sun Microsystems and JCP to insure UK users against the misuse of transaction information to try and boost consumer confidence in online trading.
The aim is to make users feel secure that if they use Sun?s Solaris operating system and JCP?s Trustbase security products, they will not lose any business because information has fallen into the wrong hands.
Royal Sun Alliance is underwriting a specific insurance policy to protect both customers and businesses from losses arising from the capture, and capture and misuse of data in any transaction.
The policy will protect online companies? customers if it can be proven that their personal details were stolen during the course of a transaction and then used elsewhere.
JCP?s Trustbase platform is based on a public key infrastructure data delivery mechanism to ensure the authentication, integrity and confidentiality of sensitive data. Sun has a reseller agreement with JCP for Trustbase (See Newswire 8 May).
