Atos SME Harbour programme opens up opportunities for innovative technology SMEs to win government business
London, UK, 1 April, 2015 – Becrypt, a leading supplier of security products to Government and industry, has entered into a partnership with Atos UK as part of the Atos SME Harbour programme. The Atos SME Harbour programme has been designed to provide a more simple and transparent way for Atos to partner with small and medium sized enterprises in client projects. A key focus of the initiative is to help SMEs become suppliers to the Public Sector, including via the Government’s G-Cloud procurement framework.
Since being invited to join the programme, Becrypt has deployed its encryption solution (Disk Protect CPA) as part of a major project for a Government department and is working with Atos on other Government and Energy client solutions.
Atos’ Harbour initiative is backed by UK CEO, Ursula Morgenstern, who comes from an SME background and understands the challenges that smaller technology companies may have when dealing with larger corporates.
Dr Bernard Parsons, CEO at Becrypt, comments; “The Atos SME Harbour programme has already provided us with a great opportunity to work with a larger supplier and provide our encryption solutions as part of wider scale business technology applications for customers. Our specialist expertise in deploying secure data solutions complements the capability that Atos brings to large commercial and government clients, with added assurance provided through a trusted and transparent supplier partnership.”
David Dinsdale, Entrepreneur in Residence at Atos said; “We are delighted to welcome Becrypt to the growing family of innovative companies who are part of our SME Harbour programme. Becrypt’s specialist cyber security knowledge and practical experience helps us ensure that our clients are safer and can react swiftly as threats arise. We see Becrypt as a leader in their field of secure mobility.”
