Edge Testing secures G-Cloud 10 supplier status with cyber services

Last updated on: July 9, 2018, Author: Editorial Team

Edge Testing Solutions has announced that it has been successfully awarded a place on the highly competitive G-Cloud 10 framework, the government’s latest cloud procurement framework.

G-Cloud 10 is live, with more than 3,500 suppliers listed on the latest iteration of the framework. More than 90% of the 3,505 companies who’ll be competing for public sector contracts are SMEs, according to the Crown Commercial Service (CCS), and there are 649 more vendors listed on the new version of G-Cloud than there were on its previous incarnation.

Following a successful procurement process, Edge Testing can now offer additional cloud services to public sector organisations. The testing firm is already on the G-Cloud 8 (G8), G9, Digital Outcomes Specialists 2 and the CCS Quality Assurance and Testing frameworks. The new award will support the company’s expanding reach across the UK public sector including central government, local government, health, education, devolved administrations, emergency services, defence and not-for-profit organisations.

As well as existing cloud services from G8 and G9 frameworks, suppliers can now apply to sell cyber security services on G-Cloud 10. This includes services that are assured under these National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) schemes:

  • Cyber Security Consultancy
  • Penetration Testing
  • Cyber Incident Response

Edge Testing is offering security solutions including:

  • Assessments
  • Compliance
  • Security program development
  • Training
  • Managed services
  • Device testing

New MD of Edge Testing Sharon Hamilton commented: “We have a strong public sector practice and an ever growing range of services that support our clients. We welcome the new G-Cloud 10, especially around the provision of security testing services, as they perfectly complement our existing provision in the testing arena.”

Edge’s public sector clients include FSCS, Scottish Prison Service, Student Loans Company, Big Lottery Fund, and South Ayrshire Council.

Public sector clients already benefit from Edge Testing’s Digital Test Hub (DTH) concept, which offers easily accessible remote testing service for in-house applications and back office systems. Currently, the company’s two DTHs are located near Glasgow and in Birmingham, with a third slated for the North of England later in 2018. Both hubs service clients UK-wide.

Edge Testing will be hosting its next ‘Testing as part of DevOps’ events in Birmingham on 10 July and Manchester on 11 July.
