Thales will be providing the Insolvency Service with secure network connectivity services for the next five years under new contract
Public sector contract for secure connectivity

Thales UK has been awarded a five-year contract to provide secure network connectivity services to The Insolvency Service, part of the UK’s Department for Business Innovation & Skills (BIS). This is the first IL3 contract awarded under the Government’s Public Services Network (PSN) Connectivity framework, which will provide network security at Business Impact Level 3.

Thales will deliver secure Wide Area Network (WAN) services across The Insolvency Service sites, including head office, regional offices and associated data centres. In addition Thales will be responsible for the migration of the existing network onto the new secure communications network and associated support services.

The contract award demonstrates Thales’s expertise in providing secure network and communication services, and positions Thales as a key supplier to UK central government and its vision of offering secure network services through the PSN initiative. With a track record of delivering secure networks across the defence, enterprise and transport industry sectors for more than 30 years, this success illustrates Thales’s capabilities in providing holistic physical, network and cyber-security solutions.

Sam Keayes, Vice President for Security and Consulting at Thales UK, said: “I am pleased that Thales has been selected to provide secure network services to The Insolvency Service. This success reinforces Thales’s position as a key provider of secure network and cyber-security services for the Government and the country’s Critical National Infrastructure. Thales has invested heavily in developing our PSN offers over the past twelve months. Securing this contract has given us a good foundation to win future business.”

PSN has been designed to provide a foundation for Government ICT and is being implemented across the UK public sector. By creating one logical network, based on industry standards, and a more open and competitive ICT marketplace, PSN enables government to safely share services and collaborate in new ways – more effectively and efficiently than ever before.
