Panda Security, The Cloud Security Company, are proud to announce their participation in the Government Procurement Service (GPS) G-Cloud Programme to provide their cloud computing solutions the whole public sector.
Available on the CloudStore, Panda Security's award winning cloud-based network antivirus solution Panda Cloud Office Protection (http://govstore.service.gov.uk/cloudstore/panda-cloud-office-protection) which includes URL filtering and Device control.
Benefits of using the G-Cloud programme include:
• Increased government economies of scale
• Selection of ICT systems in order to support government policies and strategies;
• Dynamic and responsive procurement marketplace to deliver faster business benefits and reduce cost
• Meet environmental and sustainability targets
The G-Cloud Programme is a cross government initiative as part of the Government ICT Strategy, designed to shake up traditional government buying patterns by enabling public sector bodies to procure off-the-peg cloud services from a wide range of suppliers, both big and small.
G-Cloud is a framework - once on the contract, any public body can purchase your company’s services directly without ever having to go to tender. A buying catalogue that lists all services you can offer under one easy to use contract.
It dramatically speeds up the procurement process, with the record for negotiating and awarding a contract being less than 24 hours; a very different approach to Government procurement.
There are videos, including G-Cloud in 60 seconds, available at http://www.youtube.com/user/GCloudStore
