Cloud service provider Skyscape is partnering with DeepSecure in a move the companies said would help public sector cloud users meet their compliance needs.

DeepSecure traditionally sells to the police, defence and intelligence sectors and provides secure data sharing and data management services as well as cybersecurity systems, and the partnership will see Skyscape offer its customers DeepSecure’s suite of data sharing and security services.

The move could give Skyscape, which already heavily targets the public sector, a way in with some of the more heavily regulated clients (security-wise) there.

“We’re delighted to announce our partnership with DeepSecure, a likeminded company with a significant track record when it comes to helping organisations share data securely,” said Simon Hansford, chief executive of Skyscape Cloud Services.

“DeepSecure is certainly a good cultural fit for us as a fellow UK sovereign SME that specialises in delivering secure digital services to the UK public sector.  The firm also shares our commitment to offering a consumption-based pricing model for its security services, which aligns with our own pay-as-you-go model for our full catalogue of assured cloud services,” Hansford said.
