Public sector users of the agreement can select Commissum IT Health Checks, CHECK Penetration Testing services and other assurance services, knowing that the services have been certified by the NCSC. This will provide Commissum access to the whole of the UK public sector market. The agreement will be available to central government departments and all other UK public sector bodies, including local authorities, health, police, fire and rescue, education and devolved administrations.
Replacing the multiyear Cyber Security Services 2, CSS3 gives buyers fast, simplified access to all NCSC Assured Services.
Commissum has been a member of the NCSC CHECK Scheme and an
NCSC Assured Service Provider since November 2018 and has seen significant
growth in its public sector business, becoming a key service provider to many
Central Government agencies and departments as well as suppliers to Government
and the MOD who require CHECK services.
Frank Green, Chief Sales Officer, had the following words to offer:
“This agreement is testament to strong engagement and collaboration with suppliers and buyers from both CCS and NCSC. It is expected to simplify the selection and purchasing workflow for buyers of NCSC Assured services and allow Commissum’s current clients and prospective clients a clear and swift route to market for our services."
Commissum has built a strong reputation within Government in
a short time because of the high quality of services delivered in a flexible
and pragmatic way and this agreement helps those organisations, who are
required to transact through a CCS agreement, to access our services where they
may not have been able to in the past. More choice can only mean better value
for the taxpayer and innovation in service delivery which should allow the most
agile and forward thinking players, like Commissum, to gain a competitive edge.”
