Skyscape Cloud Services today announced that the Public Services Assurance & Accreditation Board (PSAAB) has issued Skyscape with a Public Services Network (PSN) Accreditation Certificate. This allows UK Public Sector organisations to connect securely to Skyscape’s Pan Government Accredited cloud solutions via the PSN.
In addition to the Accreditation Certificate, Skyscape is also now one of a very small number of cloud providers offering Compute, Storage and Email services to be formally recognised as a PSN Service Provider (PSNSP) offering services at IL2 and IL3.
“PSN Accreditation Certificate for our cloud services is another milestone” commented Simon Hansford, CTO of Skyscape Cloud Services. “As the G-Cloud Framework continues to drive competition and innovation in the UK public sector IT market, it’s great that we’re able to stand out by offering our customers resilient and assured services that are connected to the PSN.”
“Following Pan Government Accreditation of our services at IL2 and IL3, and our recent ISO20000 announcement, this accreditation provides further testimony of our commitment to meeting the assurance needs and service standards that our UK public sector customers demand,” continued Hansford. “We’re proud to be leading and innovating the cloud services market in the UK and remain committed to ensuring our services are aligned to the Government ICT agenda. The PSN provides an assured network over which government can safely share services and collaborate in new ways, more effectively and efficiently. The fact our accredited services can now be delivered over the PSN means our customers can achieve these benefits without compromising security or performance.”
