We worked with ATLAS over an 8 year period, meeting the MoD’s stringent requirements for secure information exchange

Boldon James SAFEmail™ proven to meet secure information exchange needs of World’s largest secure network

The UK’s Ministry of Defence (MoD) has extended their Boldon James contract to a site license for over 300,000 users, as part of the Defence Information Infrastructure (DII/F) programme, intended to consolidate the MoD’s disparate legacy IT systems to deliver a single, more efficient information infrastructure. The Boldon James SAFEmail™ secure information exchange solutions have been proven over 10 years of use by the MoD, who are now to extend this capability to cover the whole of the secure network developed for them by the ATLAS Consortium, which is believed to be one of the World’s largest protected, secure networks.

“We worked with ATLAS over an 8 year period, meeting the MoD’s stringent requirements for secure information exchange in some of their most complex environments. The decision to take out a site licence enables ATLAS and the MoD to extend the use of this capability to the whole of DII in a cost-effective manner” said Martin Sugden, CEO at Boldon James. “Boldon James has over 20 years’ experience in helping businesses, governments and armed forces manage sensitive information securely and in compliance with legislation and standards. I believe our selection was based both on this experience & market knowledge, combined with our ability & willingness to customise our solutions to meet the demanding security criteria of our customers.”

The ATLAS Consortium comprises HP Enterprise Services – as prime contractor, Fujitsu, Cassidian, and Logica. The DII will support 300,000 users across all MoD locations with both fixed and deployed sites managing over 500 separate software applications.
