York, UK, 9th December 2008: Software licensing expert, Trustmarque Solutions, has today announced a strategic partnership with SISYS, the UK’s leading provider of Integrated Security Management, to provide security access systems to the Ministry of Defence (MoD) until 2010.
SISYS has been a supplier to the MoD for over 15 years, providing a range of solutions including; secure door entry systems, entry access passes and the associated hardware and software, maintenance agreements and the consumables, such as cards. SISYS became aware that the MoD was looking to consolidate the number of supply contracts that it was dealing with and were invited by MoD to approach the four suppliers on the IA Enabling Contract, with a view to supplying their products and services through this route. Trustmarque was the natural choice, as Colin Leatherbarrow, General Manager of SISYS, comments:
“We were looking to align ourselves with an approved Information Assurance supplier, so that we could continue working with the MoD, but also to increase our level of service and support for our customers to make our business more accessible. We reviewed all four suppliers and Trustmarque was the best. The company has an excellent reputation and an impressive list of contacts, particularly in the public sector, as well as an existing contract with the MoD. We feel that we will really benefits from leveraging these relationships to open doors that may have otherwise been closed, helping us to expand into new sectors, and continue our aggressive growth plans for 2009.”
The new partnership follows on from Trustmarque’s announcement in September that it had won a two year contract to supply encrypted hardware and IA related software to the MoD. Rob Cornish, MoD Business Development Manager for Trustmarque, concludes:
“We have been working with the MoD for almost 4 years on a number of contracts and we are very happy to be able to extend our offering. The SISYS product range provides a lot of opportunities for us to provide added value to the MoD and SISYS is truly a market leader in this space, so we are extremely pleased that they selected us over the other IA providers. We will now look to see how we can extend this offering outside of the MoD and into the private sector.”
