UKFast Bolsters G-Cloud 11 with Additional Security Services
Article date: Wed, 10 Jul 2019 10:03 GMT
Cloud hosting firm UKFast today announces that it is approved by the Crown Commercial Service (CCS) to supply 22 separate cloud offerings – across hosting, software and support – through the latest iteration of the government’s G-Cloud framework, G-Cloud 11.
G-Cloud supports the procurement by public sector bodies of cloud computing services.
UKFast’s full flagship eCloud portfolio is available for use by the government through the framework, alongside cybersecurity and software as a service (SaaS) products. eCloud helps hundreds of public sector organisations deliver services more efficiently and effectively.
Cyber Incident Response, Cybersecurity Consultancy and Penetration Testing & Ethical Hacking have been added to UKFast’s existing offerings on the framework.
Head of UKFast Public Sector, Stephen Jewell, said: “As more and more organisations put their trust in G-Cloud as a way of doing business, it’s becoming a really effective way to connect with prospective customers.
“Following investment in HSCN and the level of technical capability it opens up, we’d expect to see a spike in cloud adoption in the health service over the next 18 months and a further increase in healthcare organisations looking to G-Cloud to support procurement."
UKFast’s public sector department accounts for a steadily increasing percentage of the firm’s overall revenue, with a growing client portfolio including the Cabinet Office, MoD, major police and healthcare software providers and NHS Trusts.
UKFast CEO Lawrence Jones said: “Security and reliability are at the forefront of every business’s mind right now and, of course, that should be no different in the public sector. eCloud is wholly UK based and, with our suite of security products and ultra-secure data centre space, we’re perfectly equipped to help protect public sector data and keep services online.”
