LoughTec wins place on public sector framework

G-Cloud 13 - LoughTec

Under the new framework agreement, LoughTec will continue to provide cloud-based anti-virus and multiscanning technology.

Crown Commercial Service (CCS) has awarded a place on its new G-Cloud 13 framework to LoughTec. CCS is the largest public sector procurement organisation in the UK.  

This announcement continues the company’s recent success with G-Cloud, having been awarded a place on two previous versions of the framework, G-Cloud 12 and G-Cloud 11.

Under the new framework agreement, LoughTec will continue to provide cloud-based anti-virus and multiscanning technology to the public sector via Lot 2, Cloud Software (SaaS).

"We look forward to further strengthening our relationships with CCS and with the many organisations across the public sector in protecting their critical infrastructure.”

Public sector organisations utilising this technology will be protected from content and device-based cyber security threats.

Seán McDermott, CEO of LoughTec, said, “This announcement is the culmination of a lot of hard work by the LoughTec team. We are delighted to have been awarded a place on G-Cloud 13 and to continue our successful track record in delivery across this framework. We look forward to further strengthening our relationships with CCS and with the many organisations across the public sector in protecting their critical infrastructure.”

LoughTec’s cloud-based solution will provide public sector organisations with increased malware detection rates, reduced time to detection and will help protect from zero-day attacks. Features also include having the ability to protect sensitive files from leaving a network, protecting files uploaded through web portals, reducing email threats and protecting web traffic and downloads from the internet.

More than £4bn has already been spent via the G-Cloud frameworks since their introduction, making this framework an extremely attractive procurement vehicle for central government and public sector organisations.

CCS plays an important role in helping the UK public sector save money when buying common goods and services. It uses its commercial expertise to help buyers in central government and across the wider public sector to save time and reduce the cost of procurement.

LoughTec has an extensive track record in assisting customers with their IT infrastructure and cyber security across several sectors, including pharmaceutical, education, health, agri-food and security.
