BeCrypt, a leading supplier of enterprise data security solutions that are certified for use by the UK Government has been given the go ahead to export its CAPS (CESG Assisted Products Service) approved solutions internationally. BeCrypt is now able to supply its CAPS approved solutions to public sector organisations in Australia without having to apply for a specific export licence each time, so long as the project for which the products are intended is deemed appropriate. This significantly underpins BeCrypt’s decision to expand into the Australian and New Zealand markets.

International defence contractors, military and public sector organisations, including police and government agencies will benefit from using BeCrypt’s solutions as these types of organisation need higher levels of Information Assurance. As a direct result of the approval to export BeCrypt has already signed contracts with a distributor in Australia and a reseller in New Zealand and has opened an office in Sydney to provide sales and support to the local market.

Dr. Bernard Parsons, CEO of BeCrypt commented, “This agreement with the Government significantly streamlines the process for BeCrypt to sell its CAPS approved products internationally. To be able to sell UK Government approved products that provide greater levels of Information Assurance to the Governments of Australia and New Zealand gives BeCrypt a major credibility point in these markets where solutions that enable global cross-border security are of serious interest.”

Dr. Parsons continued, “We are currently recruiting partners and resellers in these countries and expect to make specific announcements soon.”
