London – August 2016 – Egress Software Technologies, a market-leading provider of cloud-based data security services that protect information throughout its lifecycle, announces its acceptance onto the G-Cloud 8 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 services to meet their secure information sharing needs.
The G-Cloud 8 Framework represents a highly efficient and cost-effective route to procure Switch services. These include Switch Secure Email and File Transfer, the only email and file encryption solution to achieve Commercial Product Assurance (CPA) certification by UK Government body CESG, enabling customers to share OFFICIAL and OFFICIAL-SENSITIVE data over the internet without the need to manage external third party credentials.
Other Switch services available on G-Cloud 8 include email and document classification, managed file transfer, secure online collaboration; and secure web form. As a result, organisations can protect all forms of shared electronic data, as well as benefit from unprecedented levels of flexibility and integration with existing infrastructure.
These services can be procured on the G-Cloud 8 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 Switch services via the G-Cloud Framework, and therefore we are delighted to be included in the eighth version alongside a number of our key partners. Egress’ successful experience of G-Cloud is directly related to the Crown Commercial Services’ (CCS) dedication to building a digital marketplace that offers genuine benefit to end-users, giving them access to innovative, leading-edge Cloud-based solutions and technology.
“We look forward to continue working alongside our partners and public sector customers via the Framework to deliver cost-effective data security services that classify, protect and control the highly sensitive information organisations need to share with external third parties outside their accredited networks.”
