CoCo is a set of security ground rules laid out by the government with which LAs must comply before their Government Connect Secure Extranet (GCSx) can be connected. GCSx is a managed network designed to enable communication between public sector bodies across the UK.
Hypertec and Equnaet are to provide LAs with a bundle of storage and end point security products to help allay any CoCo fears. The components firm is offering encrypted USB sticks and hard drives, as well as port control products and optical storage encryption technology.
"CoCo in a box" is available at a 45-day evaluation price and installation support will be provided. Equanet is the business-to-business arm of DSG International and Hypertec managing director Lianne Denness claimed it was the ideal go-to market partner.
“We are pleased to partner with Equanet to deliver our "CoCo in a box" package to LAs to help them meet the approved minimum standard of security. We have a wealth of experience in providing secure storage solutions to the public sector and are pleased to offer this package at a special trial price.
"This is a cost-efficient way for local authorities to comply with the code of connection standards before their GCSx circuit connection can be activated.”
