Data is an increasingly valuable asset for organizations. Protecting them from internal or external corruption and illegal access prevents the company from financial loss, reputational damage, degradation of consumer confidence, and brand compromise.
In addition, with the arrival of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), it was necessary to be even more attentive when handling the most diverse information. Within this context, companies are increasingly investing in technological solutions that inhibit this type of risk and possible attacks, whether manual or cybernetic.
This was the path taken by one of act digital’s clients. The company is one of the largest insurance companies in the world and, knowing the importance of good digital security, decided to invest in modern technology to guarantee secure access to its information.

Client: insurance company in the process of modernization
The insurance company, which operates globally, has been in Brazil for over 40 years and has a solid structure. Its ecosystem has more than 60 branches and offices in several cities across the country.
The insurance sector is one of the fastest growing in our country, as people understand the need for this solution to bring more peace of mind to their lives. However, companies need to modernize to meet current demands.
Our partner’s growth is linked to the digitization of its business and the increase in the number of employees and the data it receives and handles on a daily basis. Therefore, investing in technology and security is a necessary concern.
Challenge: simplify authentication and authorization
When the client approached us, their main objective was to simplify the authentication and authorization management of employees and partners in their system, with the aim of increasing the level of security in their accesses.
With the pandemic, many employees started to work remotely or in a hybrid way, making companies need to redouble their care with information security.
Knowing that the human factor is one of the main factors responsible for attacks, and also a gateway for hackers and other threats, the insurance company turned to act digital to help resolve this issue.
Solution: efficiency and security in authentication
In order to keep information secure even with brokers working remotely, act digital made a technological change and in the architecture used for user authentication (employees, brokers, customers), thus meeting the demands of growth and security.
To create the solution according to the project’s demands, we used a set of methodologies, always focusing on mapping all employee access and security needs.
Therefore, we used the workshop method with mixed dynamics of Lean Inception and Design Sprint to identify the insurance company’s needs. Here at act digital, solutions are designed in a customized and exclusive way for each client, as we understand that each corporation has unique challenges to overcome.
We also developed a solution that met the demands of the business and the broker, such as the creation of a unified corporate login API for integration in internal and external channels.
In the development of the solution, the act digital team used several technologies, such as:
- Spring Boot
- AWS (Cloud, CloudWatch, Redis, DynamoDB, SQS...)
- Postman (Test Automation)
Results: centralized authentication management
As a result, in addition to security improvements, such as the implementation of the 2AF (Second Authentication Factor) for the company and brokers, we also built a new corporate login concept, replacing the old solution, which had a decentralized management model.
The new solution helped to standardize authentication management, ensuring that employees’ routine is safe and effective, including brokers and associates who work in the most different locations in Brazil. With an understanding of the challenge and the right solution, we meet customer expectations regarding the security of their information.
