The Challenge

ResilienceDirect™ is an online private network that enables civil protection practitioners to work together – across geographical and organisational boundaries – during the preparation, response and recovery phases of an event or emergency.

The free-to-use platform enables emergency responders to cooperate and share information in real time, ensuring that action is coordinated. The platform currently has more than 35,000 users logging on every week.

The Technology Chosen - Private Cloud

ResilienceDirect™ needed a solution to provide elasticity and scalability to cope with a huge spike in users logging onto the platform and sharing vast amounts of data during an emergency situation. When the government sent the hosting contact to tender it needed a provider that guaranteed a stringent level of security, while delivering value for money.

We have to be as secure as anyone can possibly be - UKFast are the best in their league and really help to keep the UK safe.

The Solution we Delivered

UKFast provides ResilienceDirect™ with a private cloud solution offering scalability and elasticity when needed. Hosted from UKFast's data centres and backed by our award-winning support, data sovereignty and security is assured. ISO 27001 and Cyber Essential plus certified, the ResilienceDirect platform is accredited by NCSC, administered by an SC Cleared team. ResilienceDirect is protected by a secure architecture, Protective Monitoring and a full disaster recovery site to ensure the system is available to support incident responses.
