As part of the techUK Public Sector Innovation Den , we undertake profiles of innovative techUK members working in the GovTech space. This week we catch up with Bernard Parsons, CEO, Becrypt
Describe your service
Becrypt offers a software platform that enables the secure sharing of IT infrastructure and services across collaborating organisations.
What does innovation in the public sector mean to you?
Public Sector IT innovation is enabling the effective adoption of cloud and mobile technologies through more flexible market engagement. The outward facing nature of NCSC (National Cyber Security Centre), prioritising usability and business efficiency alongside security, has helped encourage IT infrastructures that position security as a business enabler. Becrypt have worked with NCSC as part of the CloudClient project to implement an IT platform that allows collaborating organisations to share information and services, ensuring complete confidence in the health of endpoint platforms. We have supported collaboration between Law Enforcement, Health and Local Government, as well as across Central Government departments and their supply chain.
What was your key pitch to the public sector GovTech leaders at the Innovation Den?
The majority of cyber-attacks at some point involve compromising an End User device. The NCSC CloudClient architecture provides confidence in the identity and integrity of end user devices accessing IT services. Ensuring no malware is present, whilst providing a modern intuitive user experience and cost-effective IT platform for accessing cloud and online services.
