Protecting vulnerable people. Tackling serious and organised crime. These are complex undertakings that need multi-agency collaboration to deliver effective outcomes.
A cloud-based platform can overcome the technical and networking obstacles to collaboration. But the sensitive nature of the information involved means you can’t simply use an internet-accessible application hosted in a generic public cloud.
That’s why Alliantist developed PAM, a secure cloud-based collaboration platform that helps organisations work better together on sensitive projects. The main challenges Alliantist faced when choosing a hosting environment for PAM were:
Alliantist delivers specialist cloud services that are underpinned by a heritage in partnering and collaboration, and reinforced with trusted and certified information security management systems.
PAM is hosted on UKCloud’s Elevated OFFICIAL cloud platform. As well as being suitable for data at OFFICIAL-SENSITIVE, this platform is shielded from the public internet. Access is via UKCloud’s PSN-P connection, which provides onward connectivity to other secure community networks used by PAM customers.
UKCloud meets the high standards of security and accredited Alliantist was looking for. It operates across two sites, enabling data replication for a resilient solution. And it enables Alliantist to manage and scale the storage and hosting environment in line with customer demand.

100+ organisations in the criminal justice, healthcare and local and central government communities use pam. They rely on it to accelerate problem resolution, drive more informed decision-making, and enhance the likelihood of successful outcomes.
