Redscan, the managed threat detection, incident response and penetration testing specialist, today announced the availability of its services on G-Cloud 11 – the latest iteration of the Government platform created to make it easier for public sector organisations to procure cloud-based services.

 

The Redscan services to be listed are ThreatDetect™– Managed Detection and Response as well as CREST-accredited Penetration Testing and IT Health Checks. These services are highly suited to organisations on a digital transformation path, which need to comprehensively secure growing cloud and hybrid IT environments as well as achieve compliance with the highest information security standards.

More and more government bodies are adopting cloud services and storing sensitive data in environments such as Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and Office 365. Redscan helps organisations protect and monitor these environments in order to significantly reduce information security risk and achieve compliance with the GDPR and NIS Directive, as well as the Government’s own Cloud Security Principles,

Organisations across the public sector are adopting cloud applications apace, but are struggling to update their security practices at the same rate,” said Mark Nicholls, Redscan CTO. “By delivering services that help improve cyber resilience and achieve deep threat visibility, Redscan enables organisations to embrace digital transformation with confidence.

Many organisations, for instance, are still unsure of their responsibilities when it comes to securing both public and private cloud environments. There is a widely held assumption that providers are solely responsible for security when this is not the case.

Our services on G-Cloud 11 help bridge the cyber security skills and resource gap, providing the cyber offensive expertise and intelligence needed to safeguard against sophisticated and targeted threats.

Redscan’s CREST approved penetration testing service helps organisations to discover and address gaps in their cybersecurity that could lead to networks, systems, applications and users being compromised by cybercriminals.
