UKFast innovatively grows cloud services

Technology firm UKFast has acquired a cloud and cyber security services provider that works with a host of government organizations.

UKFast chief executive Lawrence Jones has sealed a deal to buy Secure Information Assurance (S-IA) following the announcement of a £2.3m investment to bolster his firm’s government data center space.

S-IA provides secure cloud hosting and cybersecurity services to the UK Ministry of Defense, the Cabinet Office and a raft of other UK government organizations.

The move is a further step towards the high-level security services market, just six months after the acquisition of cybersecurity specialists Pentest by Jones’ security business Secarma in July 2016.

Jones said: “This deal has been exactly a year in the making. Acquiring S-IA is a strategic move, not only because of its high-profile government clients, but also because of its security product set.

They are already delivering accredited services from List-X facilities to a number of clients.

It’s a business that’s very much on the rise and the deal was an extremely competitive process, but the S-IA management team sees the clear advantage of partnering with UKFast, seeing the instant scalability of our eCloud platform as the perfect offering for the government.

“We’re bolting on a new level of expertise and technical capability to UKFast’s existing product range, and combined with our exclusively UK-based data centers and best of British service, it’s an offering that other large providers dealing with the public sector simply can’t match.”

Established in 2003, S-IA is focussed exclusively on government and public sector services, bringing 14 years’ experience of managing process and procedure for the highest level of government to UKFast.
