We are honoured to have been announced as a UK Cloud Awards finalist for the best public sector/3rd sector project for our partnership with MTCnovo. These awards celebrate the diversity, innovation, excellence, customer experience and digital transformation powered by the cloud industry. The winner will be announced on 16th May and although a win would be fitting recognition for the hard work that went into delivering this trailblazing project, we are delighted to have been listed amongst some of the best in our industry.
MTCnovo, operators of the London and Thames Valley probation service engaged Cloud Fundamental to design a scalable and secure hosting platform. This platform needed to accommodate their new CMS and reporting solutions which would communicate directly with MoJ’s central systems to retrieve and update central offender records. Offender data is classified as Official (up to Official-Sensitive) and communication would be across the Public Services Network (PSN) Protect network using the MoJ’s Strategic Partner Gateway (SPG) to allow messages to be passed securely between the parties.
Cloud Fundamental needed to prove the public cloud would provide a low cost platform that could scale with business needs, replacing traditional high upfront infrastructure expenses. Crucially, the solution needed to be designed without compromising security and meet the requirements of the MoJ security accreditor.
Cloud Fundamental’s technical knowledge and decades of experience enabled them to compile a valid and credible design that mitigated risk and challenged security misconceptions about the public cloud. With this expertise and much perseverance, Cloud Fundamental completed a 3 month proof of concept phase in December 2017.
This successful delivery provided a full code deployment that proved the application could function at a performant level within AWS, subsequently achieving full accreditation and approval to migrate Official Sensitive MoJ workloads and connect to the PSN (Protect).
“Cloud Fundamental rose to the challenge of hosting a CMS and reporting solution with official-sensitive data in a public cloud, delivering a government-accredited, PSN-certified, secure solution in AWS; a first in the UK.”
