LONDON & WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Covata Limited (ASX:CVT) (Covata or the Company) product Safe Share has successfully completed the testing and G-Cloud framework procurement process to be accepted as a secure file sharing application for the UK Public Sector.
Launched in 2012 G-Cloud allows public sector organisations to use the Digital Marketplace to find, build and integrate world-class digital services from pre-approved and procured SaaS services. The UK Government has mandated a “Cloud First” approach to IT, with the marketplace achieving strong success since launching.
Covata’s successful application means that Public Sector organisations can purchase Safe Share quickly and efficiently without the need to run a full tender. The formal Official Journal of the European Union procurement process has already been completed through this process.
As of September 2015 close to £1 Billion worth of sales have been reported across all products and services available on G-Cloud with Covata Safe Share for sale from next week.
Covata Vice President European Operations Stephen Golding said, “The UK Government is pioneering an agile way for the entire public sector to adopt cloud based services. Spanning all levels of Her Majesty’s Government, through to local health, education and council organisations, G-Cloud makes Safe Share available to a very large market of organisations proactively seeking a secure and compliant way to share information.”
“Covata is entering the marketplace with a strong endorsement having already proven its ability to succeed in this market with 15 Australian Government Departments and Agencies currently using Safe Share.”
The UK Office of National Statistics states that as of the end of 2014 there are more than 5.3 million employees working in the Public Sector. This represents the Total Addressable Market of End User Seats for Covata.
