Fordway have been on the Goverment G-Cloud framework since it’s inception and as part of this process achieved Pan Government Accreditation for our services which confirmed our support for OFFICIAL and OFFICIAL-SENSITIVE data security. Achieving this required Fordway to demonstrate that we meet the robust requirements of CESG as well as industry best practice. Customers in the Private Sector are able to take advantage of the same robust, high availability, scalable cloud services we provide to the UK Public Sector.
Fordway also maintain Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus. The Cyber Essentials scheme, launched by the Government in 2014 helps to provide an independent benchmark of the security controls in used by an organisation. Fordway can also facilitate Cyber Essentials for organisations interested in meeting this standard.
For organisations in the public sector Fordway also hold PSN (Public Services Network) accreditation which enables us to offer our PaaS, IaaS and DaaS cloud services for organisations which hold the security classification and policies in place to connect to the PSN.
