OGC has been set up to lead a wide-ranging programme to modernise procurement in government, and deliver substantial value for money improvements. OGC is developing an integrated procurement policy and strategy across government and represents the UK on procurement matters in Europe, in the World Trade Organisation. "Many civil servants are already working from remote sites, in hotels and from home and require access to essential information and to exchange data.

HarrerZeuros' solution includes Check Point's Firewall-1, to track and control communications and RSA Security's ACE/Server. RSA Security's ACE/Server facilitates user authentication and segregates duties for remote users; it is also capable of handling a significant amount of simultaneous authentication transactions.

Our solution will provide the scalability required to handle the growing traffic volumes, whilst offering remote users secure access to the OGC's networks."
