Lloyds of London has launched a secure Web hosting service for companies operating within the Lloyds insurance marketplace.

The service - a network protected by multiple firewalls - sits between Lloyds' own network (LIN) and the Internet.

The hosting service allows customers to develop their own business applications and manage their own Web sites in a buffer zone.

"By offering a buffered zone between the LIN and the Internet a high degree of protection can be given against unwanted access or even attack," said Brian Potter, manager for infrastructure services at Lloyds.

Users can access the service globally through secure Web sites as well as exchange sensitive data across the Internet using either user ID and password identification or SecureID token authentication.
