We design, build and manage IT infrastructures that support secure connectivity and information sharing.
Through our experience of connecting to secure networks, such as GCSx and the NHS’ N3, we have become a trusted advisor to bodies such as Capital Ambition (previously London Connects), Socitm, ADASS and NHS CfH (Connecting for Health).
We provide information security consultancy, infrastructure design and managed security services to local government, health authorities and commercial organisations, especially where connection to the GCSx and N3 networks is required.
Information security is not just about IT solutions
We provide services that encompass the identification of all information assets, and measure the risks associated with those assets. This involves looking at information held both on computer systems and paper records, and in assessing the risks presented by the people who have access to that data.
Of equal importance to the design of IT infrastructure and networks are the associated policies and procedures around handling data.
Our consultants are well versed and highly skilled in both areas – offering leadership and advice with the message that it is not just the IT management’s function to worry about Information Security management.
The challenge of information sharing
Organisations working with vulnerable people, such as Local Authorities, NHS Trusts and Third Sector organisations share a key challenge – to share information across the boundaries of their own infrastructure. This clearly presents further challenges to protecting the security of that information, yet this requirement is being driven by powerful political and legislative pressures.
For example, the Department of Work and Pensions are responsible for the payment of Housing Benefit to claimants; however the administration of claims is the responsibility of the Local Authority.
With our proven track record in the field of designing, implementing and managing secure infrastructures which are fully compliant with the standards prescribed by central government and the NHS for secure information sharing, we are in a fantastic position to ensure that your organisation can share sensitive information securely, either internally or externally, massively reducing the threat of data loss.
Managed Security Services
We have considerable experience in providing hosted and remote managed services. From our Remote Management Centre, we provide a range of managed services that include hosting, network and systems administration, security monitoring and the management of VPNs, firewall and authentication systems.
The main risk to the security of IT systems is not malicious attack. Most issues arise because someone has done something inadvertently, creating a security vulnerability. With the increase in Internet connectivity and transfer of data by email, the likelihood of systems being compromised through security breaches is increasing significantly.
Over many years, our Remote Management Centre has built a reputation for its security services which include: Intrusion detection, Mail screening, Screening against web-born malicious code, User authentication, Data encryption, SSL VPN, URL screening, 24 hour cover.
