Perficient Data & Analytics

Zurich’s acquisition of Bright Box, a company which provides telematics solutions “that link drivers to their vehicles, and the vehicles to networks of car dealers and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs),” is an excellent example of this.

On October 8, 2014, the Department of Homeland Security reported that over the course of several months, the network of a large critical manufacturing company was compromised.
