Redscan services on G-Cloud 12, helping secure public sector against cyber attacks

G-Cloud 12

Latest services help secure the cloud, protect remote workers and rapidly respond to threats

Redscan, the Managed Detection, and Response and Penetration Testing specialist, today announced the availability of its services on G-Cloud 12 – the latest iteration of the UK Government’s cloud procurement platform.

The Redscan services listed are ThreatDetect™– Managed Detection and Response as well as CREST-accredited Penetration Testing and IT Health Checks. These services are designed to enable organizations to reliably secure their infrastructure and assets as well as rapidly detect and respond to threats.

Ever-increasing attacks on providers of critical services mean that cybersecurity is of huge concern across the public sector. An increase in remote working has only increased overall risk and complexity – a challenge that Redscan’s security experts, technology and threat intelligence are proven to help organizations address.

“Events over the last six months only remind us of the value of the public sector and the importance of ensuring that organisations within it have access to the support they need to defend against the threats they face daily,” said Mark Nicholls, Redscan CTO.
