xMatters has been awarded a position on the Crown Commercial Service’s G-Cloud 9 (GC9) Framework in the UK’s Digital Marketplace for public sector organizations.
xMatters is a toolchain communication platform that relays data between systems while engaging the right people to resolve incidents. The company was previously named a certified supplier for Crown Commercial Service’s G-Cloud 7 (GC7) Framework in 2015. The new GC9 certification requires licensed organizations to uphold high standards of product usability, onboarding and data import/export, and security.
“GC9 now covers a number of additional areas, with a heavier focus on data security components like Data In Transit, Asset Protection, Availability & Resilience, Operational & Staff SEcurity, and ISO Standards & Certifications,” said Bob Hawk, Operations Security Manager at xMatters. “We strive to go above and beyond these security requirements, and we’re pleased to give UK public sector organizations access to the company’s proven and cost-effective cloud-based solution.”
“We feel very passionate about supporting the increasing demands and requirements from the Public Sector here in the UK,” said Laura Meadows, VP of EMEA at xMatters, Inc. “Incidents like the WannaCry ransomeware attack highlight the risk to our public services. xMatters is committed to supporting G Cloud and its approach to making purchasing faster, cheaper and more secure for the UK Government.”
