Defence.

Data protection:
Sensitive, specialist
delivery of secure ICT.

Like all government departments, the Ministry of Defence is on a journey of digital transformation, as laid out by ISS. New ways to deliver information services to the end user, such as the use of secure cloud, are urgently required. The old ways of working – with inflexible, expensive, slow-to-change contracts and infrastructure – are becoming a thing of the past. The speed of change in the information world means that MOD must deliver services more quickly and more efficiently, and be more connected than ever before, yet maintain the security that defence demands.

UKCloud recognises this requirement and is working with MOD and other large government departments to deliver that change through the use of cloud services. Using our secure, connected and resilient cloud platform, we can deliver information outcomes more rapidly and effectively, allowing ISS to concentrate on what the user wants, and invest more time and resource in things like application development and information innovation.

Using our experience of providing assured cloud solutions to other government departments such as the Ministry of Justice, Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs and the Home Office, UKCloud is in a strong position to help MOD with its own transformation programme, most notably with Defence as a Platform, which demands universal access, evergreen services and avoidance of vendor lock-in. UKCloud can deliver against these requirements, providing a true cloud that is connected, transparent, elastic, secure and easy to use.

Our assured cloud computing services are dedicated to the UK public sector and offer:

1

Connectivity:

We’re the most connected cloud provider to secure government networks; we’re a certified Public Services Network (PSN) service provider, connected to the RLI and an aggregator for the N3 network.

2

A proven platform:
Delivering services to the Ministry of Defence, the Ministry of Justice, the Home Office and other departments with data sensitive applications.

3

Security:
Protecting citizen data, our services were previously Pan Government Accredited up to IL3, and so are suitable for data at OFFICIAL (including OFFICIAL-SENSITIVE).

4

Sovereign :
As a UK company, our cloud platform is only hosted in the UK in close prolixity to other known assets.

5

Cost efficiency:

Simple hourly charges, pay only for what you use.

6

Greener cloud:
Our services are CarbonNeutral ® Cloud Services and we also have CarbonNeutral ® Company status.

 

We work directly with MOD on a number of projects. We also work with an extensive community of partners that focus specifically on serving the defence community to including many of the large System Integrators, Fivium, nine23, Niteworks, Mears Housing and SecureCloud+. Together with our Partners we can deliver the secure solutions that are needed to deliver critical services to the defence community in a more agile and cost-effective manner.

We’re doing
something different

Critical services for a critical service.
