Gold Certification will now give us the kudos needed to sell a broader range of products and expand our reach into other government departments
Trusted supplier to MoD steps up IT security capabilities with Becrypt End Point Protection solutions
London, UK, 25 October 2012 - End-to-end IT specialist Akhter Computers plc. has achieved Gold Certification Partner status with Becrypt. The accreditation makes Akhter an official End Point Protection (EPP) Service Delivery Partner and supports the company’s commitment to providing the latest IT security products and encryption expertise to public sector organisations. Becrypt Gold Certification will benefit Akhter as it actively expands on its success in the defence industry and seeks new business opportunities across Central Government including the NHS, education and blue light services such as the police.
A partner of Becrypt since 2006, Akhter is one of the few companies in the UK to achieve List-X Central Government Information Supplier status. This is in recognition of its stringent approach to in-house security and ability to provide world-class security technologies, which include Becrypt’s DISK Protect Baseline and DISK Protect Enhanced which are CESG certified to protect information up to Impact Level 6 (TOP SECRET), the only software based encryption to be approved at this high level.
John Oakley, Group Sales & Projects Director at Akhter commented, “Our relationship with Becrypt has gone from strength to strength culminating in Gold Certification. This latest accolade not only rewards our hard work and commitment to Becrypt but boosts our credibility within the industry, “Trust is a non-negotiable requirement, we deliver on time and are always responsive to the client’s requirements”. Gold Certification will now give us the kudos needed to sell a broader range of products and expand our reach into other government departments. These are exciting times for Akhter and we look forward to developing new and profitable markets with the Becrypt portfolio.”
Bernard Parsons, CEO of Becrypt said; “The Government has stated that it is keen to work with more SMEs. Becrypt is committed to supporting this initiative through our channel partners, and Akhter will be key in this. Smaller organisations, such as Becrypt and Akhter, are often able to provide more agile and innovative solutions that respond more quickly to industry demands. With the ever increasing threat of cyber crime many more organisations are recognising the benefit of utilising the type of robust security solutions that used to be the preserve of military and government departments.”
Becrypt EPP provides a fully integrated package of cyber security solutions that protect commercial and sensitive data held on PCs, laptops, tablets, USB devices, CDs/DVDs and other media with powerful encryption. The EPP suite also provides a comprehensive management console so that security for an organisation’s entire PC/laptop/tablet/handheld estate can be managed centrally, saving time and providing a more secure and effective solution.
