Becrypt invited to Downing Street reception following presentation on innovative secure remote working solution that could provide significant savings for public sector Thursday 14 July 2011 PDF Print Becrypt Trusted Client wins through to final of Cabinet Office’s Innovation Launch Pad from over 350 entrants Leading IT and data security expert Becrypt has been selected to present its award winning Trusted Client secure remote working solution to an audience of government buyers and to a reception at Downing Street. Trusted Client enables employee remote working using re-purposed laptops, or alternatively home computers, removing the requirement for expensive laptops. This underpins both the Government property rationalisation programmes and flexible working initiatives. Trusted Client meets requisite Government security standards providing low cost, mobile access from unmanaged or re-purposed desktops or laptops without compromising data security. Voted for by civil servants as part of the Cabinet Office’s Innovation Launch Pad, if Trusted Client was rolled out across local government, data extrapolated from actual local government operational deployments shows savings of over £150million annually could be achieved. Winner of the SC Magazine Best Remote Access Award for three years running, Becrypt Trusted Client addresses the inherent risks of allowing unmanaged connections to an organisation’s secure networks and data. By providing cost effective and highly secure access for mobile workers Trusted Client is an easy to use solution that transforms an unmanaged machine into a secure access point. Simply by inserting the Trusted Client device into a USB port and re-booting, a secure environment is launched, providing a user interface, web browser, email access and standalone applications completely isolated from the host PC’s hard drive. Trusted Client is fully configurable to each organisation’s individual requirements. Bernard Parsons, CEO at Becrypt said, “We are delighted to have reached the final round of the Innovation Launch Pad and to have the chance to present Trusted Client to such an influential audience. More remote and flexible working is an obvious way for all organisations, not just those in the public sector, to reduce costs. However, this always comes with the compromise to data security. Trusted Client provides an innovative, elegant and cost effective solution to this tricky issue.” -ends- NOTES TO EDITORS: About Innovation Launch Pad Through the Innovation Launch Pad the Cabinet Office invited SMEs to pitch their business proposals for products and services they can provide to drive better value for money for Government. At the end of the submission phase on 22nd April, SMEs had submitted a total of 351 proposals. Civil servants from across Government helped to choose the best proposals from all those submitted. The SMEs with the best proposals are offered intensive mentoring from a team including Hermann Hauser, Mike Lynch and Jon Moulton. From these, around 10 SMEs will be invited to present their proposals at a Product Surgery in Whitehall in July. Downing Street will also host a reception for those with the best proposals. The aim is to stimulate new, open competitions in Government markets in which SMEs will be able to participate.
