Memset’s PSN-Protected data centre goes live

Memset,  British SME supplier of cloud hosting services to the UK public sector, has announced that its government accredited data centre facility is now fully live with its connection to PSN-Protected, the highest level of PSN security.

Driven by a desire to bring the best of commodity public cloud prices to higher government security tiers, Memset invested £1.8m constructing a highly efficient, highly scalable IL4-capable data centre in Dunsfold Park, Surrey which was completed in July 2014.

Supporting the government’s vision for having one network for all UK public sector organisations, Memset went in pursuit of a Public Services Network (PSN) connection in November 2012.

Memset is now connected to the PSN-Protected network, enabling it to make full use of the facility, intended for high security government data.

Kate Craig-Wood, MD of Memset said: “Trying to secure a PSN connection was a surprisingly long process for us and very resource intensive for an organisation of our size. However, we now have a live connection which is an additional USP for an SME like Memset supplying Lot 2 hosting services to the public sector via G-Cloud.”
