Local and national government
Supporting digital transformation
Across local and national government, UKFast is supporting secure cloud-led digital transformation. We’re not just implementing that strategy, we are a critical part of it, chosen to host the Cabinet Office’s ResilienceDirect™ platform and a range of initiatives to improve productivity and cost efficiencies.
Investment in technology
With increasing pressure on budgets and growing demand for online services, it’s vital for all areas of government to choose the right technology partner. UKFast has invested heavily in building dedicated data centres and has a management team experienced in fulfilling the unique demands of government.
Part of the team
As central government forwards the digital transformation agenda with programmes like Cloud Native, and local government strives to action these initiatives, we have become part of the team for organisations, councils and authorities across the UK.
Fast and cost-efficient
Wherever public sector organisations need to focus their digital transformation, we help them get there faster, with absolute assurance of data sovereignty, information security and GDPR compliance, along with significant cost efficiencies.
As a government hyperscale computing partner, we help local and national bodies to retire costly and inefficient data centres by migrating entire IT environments to the cloud.
Secure, compliant collaboration
Our cloud solutions hold pan-government (NCSC) accreditation and certification for specific private networks. In this way, we enable secure collaboration between different government departments and private industry without cross-contamination. At the same time, we help reduce costs and complexity, with no compromise on compliance or capacity.

UKFast has built and managed dedicated private and public cloud solutions, designed specifically for central and local government and its partners for over 20 years. We are supporting services to over 80,000 end users, including all the emergency services through our long-standing partnership with ResilienceDirect™.
