iland certified under G-Cloud 11 framework to deliver cloud hosting
London – 2nd July, 2019 - iland, an industry-leading provider of secure cloud services, today announced it is certified under the G-Cloud 11 framework to deliver cloud services. This is the sixth year in succession that iland has been listed as a G-Cloud supplier, emphasising the company’s commitment to delivering cloud-based services to public sector organisations in the UK.
The G-Cloud framework, an agreement between the UK government and suppliers that provide cloud-based services, acts as a digital market for public sector bodies to search for cloud-based services. iland is a global provider of secure and compliant infrastructure as a service (IaaS), disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS), and backup as a service (BaaS) with nine data centres around the world including London and Manchester.
“G-Cloud has far-reaching benefits for the public sector in selecting and purchasing cloud services, cloud hosting, cloud software and cloud support,” said Frank Krieger, iland vice president of governance, risk and compliance. “It makes it easy for public sector organisations, including central government, local authorities, blue-lights and the NHS, to purchase iland solutions, and it affords them the confidence to know that we meet stringent government-set standards.”
G-Cloud services are divided into three categories:
· Cloud hosting such as content delivery networks or load balancing services
· Cloud software including accounting tools or customer service management software
· Cloud support for migration services or ongoing support.
Krieger added: “With the UK government’s mandate of increased cloud adoption, public sector organisations in the UK need to easily understand, implement and use cloud services to drive cost savings and IT efficiencies. With advanced security features including vulnerability scanning, encryption, intrusion detection, anti-virus and anti-malware combined with an award-winning management console, iland is bringing the next generation of cloud solutions to UK government entities.”
iland adheres to European compliance certifications including ISO 27001, ISO 9001, ISO 20000, CSA STAR and BS 10012. Its secure cloud services, covered by G-Cloud, are delivered from strategically-located data centres in London and Manchester and include public cloud with advanced security and compliance, disaster recovery as a service and cloud backup.
