Public Services Network (PSN)

Owned by the government, the PSN serves as a high-performance network for all public sector organisations. Helping increase interoperability amongst departments and reducing repeat work. 

At UKCloud, our native connectivity provides access to most central, local and devolved government organisations. Cleared to carry both Assured and Elevated workloads  now even your most sensitive systems can move to the cloud. 

To use this network, your organisation must have a PSN compliance certificate. 

Restricted LAN Interconnect (RLI)

RLI is a high-security network with pre-approved connection options for the defence community and industry partners.  

Available as part of our multi-cloud offering, defence organisations can quickly access the critical information they need to deliver new and existing services in the cloud. Not only will your data be hosted in our state-of-the-art facilities – but you’ll also benefit from direct access to one of the UK’s most secure networks. 

Connection to RLI is subject to vetting and approval from the MoD. 

Health and Social Care Network (HSCN)

HSCN is a high-speed data network dedicated to health and care – replacing the previously used N3 network. As with PSN, RLI, and Janet – this network was launched with the hope to improve interoperability amongst its incumbents. 

Built on the crown campus, UKCloud offers native access to HSCN – providing healthcare organisations with the opportunity to take applications with dependencies to this network and deliver them in the cloud. 


Janet – owned by Jisc – is a high-speed network for the UK research and education sector. Janet currently serves over 18 million users and is the most active National Research and Education Network in Europe – carrying 1.5 petabytes worth of data each year. 

Built on the Crown Campus, UKCloud offers direct access to the Janet network so the education industry can access the data and resources they need to deliver new and existing services in the cloud. 

Assured Official

The UKCloud Assured OFFICIAL cloud platform previously achieved CESG Pan Government Accreditation (PGA) and is PSN accredited to host OFFICIAL data (including OFFICIAL SENSITIVE) which is accessible via native connectivity to DDoS protected internet, PSN, HSCN and Janet networks dependent on relevant accreditation. You can also connect private connections, and the platform undergoes regular audits and CHECK tests

Elevated Official

The UKCloud Elevated OFFICAL cloud platform previously achieved CESG Pan Government Accreditation (PGA) and is PSN accredited to host OFFICIAL data (including OFFICIAL SENSITIVE) which is accessible via native connectivity to PSN, RLI and other secure or/and encrypted government networks dependant on relevant accreditation.

You can also connect private connections, and the platform undergoes regular audits and CHECK tests. This isolated platform allows UK public sector organisations to create highly secure workloads in the cloud, whilst segregating data and compute functions into either the Assured or Elevated platforms to ensure data is secure.

Above Official

UKCloud offers uncompromising security and integrity.

As the only UK sovereign Strategic Cloud Provider with government-approved secure facilities and security-cleared staff, we bring the power of the cloud into the most secure and sensitive environments. Making it easy to connect and share information between security domains.

Your mission-critical systems operating at Tier 2 or SECRET require the highest levels of integrity and availability – and our platform is ready to deliver superior levels of resilience.

Native access to the Health and Social Care Network (HSCN)

Our health cloud platform is cleared to host your most secure and sensitive systems and comes with native access to the HSCN network.

Carbon Negative Solutions

All of our customers enjoy a monthly carbon offset certificate as standard. And after being recognised by a Strategic Supplier of Multi-Cloud by the Crown Commercial Service (CCS) – we are committed to going carbon negative.

The right platform for every workload

Our multi-cloud has something to offer for everyone. Rehost enterprise systems with VMware, or deploy new, cloud-native solutions with open source. No matter your digital maturity, our security-cleared staff are here to help.

Go public or private

No matter how small the gain, we know that every detail matters when it comes to keeping patient data safe. That’s why we’re proud to be able to offer health organisations choice. A choice of technology, a choice of connectivity options, and a choice on deployment types. Deploy new solutions via a public cloud, a private one or in your own data centre facility.

We know it’s sometimes easier to push through new, digital projects as a capital expense (CAPEX) – and if that’s the case, we’re happy to oblige.

Cross Domain Security Zone

Give secure, internal-enabled access to HSCN with Cross Domain Security Zone (CDSZ).

With CDSZ, Health Trusts and ISVs can give UK citizens intermittent access to patient data stored on HSCN – helping to improve interoperability amongst health departments and deliver nextgen digital health services. Aligned to NCSC’s Cloud Security Principles, CDSZ can also be used to help mobilise your workforce and put patient data into the hands of those that need it most.

UK Sovereign Data Centres

Outdated hardware can be a ticking time bomb.

As was shown in 2017, hackers won’t think twice about using hardware vulnerabilities to their advantage. And with cyber threats by organised crime and nation-states at an all-time high, health organisations need to do everything they can to protect patient data. Wipeout decades worth of technical debt by hosting critical systems in our state-of-the-art, UK-sovereign data centres.

Cyber Essentials Plus

We have been assessed in five key control areas – boundary firewalls and internet gateways, secure configuration, access control, malware protection and patch management. The Plus level additionally requires thorough independent technical checks of UKCloud’s platforms and systems, and seeks to identify whether they could be compromised by a variety of different cyber-attack scenarios


Our ISO27001-certified Information Security Management System (ISMS) is based on a robust framework of information security policies and procedures, aligned with the our Risk Assessment Methodology.

This methodology constantly assesses a wide variety of threats and vulnerabilities which may compromise information assets or the supporting assets on which they depend for their security.


ISO27017 builds on ISO27001 by providing a more focused approach to managing the risks associated with the selection and use of cloud computing environments, from the perspective of both the cloud provider and the cloud consumer.

We were one of the first organisations to achieve external certification against the ISO27017 standard.
