About MAP

Established in 2000, Managing Agency Partners Ltd (MAP) is an independent agency underwriting in the Lloyd’s of London insurance market. Renowned for its expertise across a dynamic insurance market, MAP, as a regulated organisation, demands a robust and highly secure IT infrastructure.

“For over two decades, METCLOUD has been a trusted partner to MAP, delivering professional services and continuous managed support and security services. METCLOUD has significantly strengthened MAP’s cybersecurity, seamlessly integrating with our Microsoft technologies. With tools like Microsoft Sentinel and Defender MXDR, we are ensured robust protection against cyber threats, securing our ability to be a leader in the Llyods market."


Managing a wealth of sensitive data, MAP faces the risk of cyber threats that could lead to unauthorised access, financial fraud, and service interruptions, potentially causing reputational damage and financial losses. Furthermore, compliance with strict data protection regulations, such as the GDPR and Data Protection Act also underscores the need for a robust cybersecurity strategy to safeguard operations and maintain client trust.

Consulting firm Deloitte reported, “Cyber-attacks in the insurance sector are growing exponentially as insurance companies migrate toward digital channels in an effort to create tighter customer relationships, offer new products and expand their share of customers’ financial portfolios.” Moreover in 2023, US insurance giant Genworth Financial disclosed that it has been compromised by a significant data breach, affecting millions of its policyholders, with hackers gaining unauthorised access to the personal information of between 2.5 million and 2.7 individuals, including customers and insurance agents.

This is why MAP has prioritised investments in security solutions, such as Microsoft Sentinel. With a commitment to staying ahead of evolving cyber threats, they sought a solution capable of seamless integration with both third-party stacks and Microsoft technologies.
