Egress Switch encryption services available to procure via the G-Cloud 7 Framework
London - November 2015 - Egress Software Technologies, a market-leading provider of Cloud-based encryption services, today announces its acceptance onto the G-Cloud 7 Framework, the UK Government’s programme committed to encouraging the adoption of Cloud services across the Public Sector. Inclusion into the framework will help organisations procure Egress Switch encryption services to meet their secure information sharing needs.
The G-Cloud 7 Framework represents a highly efficient and cost-effective route to procure Switch, the only desktop and gateway encryption product to have achieved UK Government's CESG Commercial Product Assurance (CPA) certification. Using Switch, Public Sector customers are able to share OFFICIAL and OFFICIAL-SENSITIVE data over the internet without the need to manage external third party credentials.
Utilising G-Cloud 7, customers can benefit from the entire Switch platform of services, designed to offer unprecedented levels of flexibility and integration with existing infrastructure in order to protect all forms of shared electronic data. Switch services include: secure email and file transfer; managed file transfer, offering automated bulk file transfer; secure online collaboration; and secure web form.
These services can be procured on the G-Cloud 7 Framework via Egress Platinum Partners: NTS UK - part of Capita plc; Sapphire; and Softcat Ltd.
Commenting on the announcement, Egress CEO Tony Pepper states: "We continue to see increasing demand from customers wanting to procure our encryption services through the G-Cloud Framework. This is a reflection of the work carried out by the Crown Commercial Service (CCS) to build a digital marketplace that offers genuine benefit to end-users, giving them access to innovative, leading-edge Cloud-based solutions and technology.
"I am therefore delighted that our leading partners have chosen to include Switch services as part of their G-Cloud offerings. By working closely with these value-added resellers and our public sector customers, we will continue to deliver cost-effective encryption services that protect the highly sensitive information organisations need to share with external third parties outside their accredited networks."
