Edge Testing Strengthens Public Sector Presence with G-Cloud 10 Supplier Status

 

Crown CommercialOne of the UK’s fastest growing and largest independent software testing companies, Edge Testing Solutions, part of Eurofins Digital Testing, has today announced that it has been successfully awarded a place on the highly competitive G-Cloud 10 framework, the government’s latest cloud procurement framework.

Following a successful procurement process, Edge Testing can now offer additional cloud services to public sector organisations. Edge Testing is already on the G-Cloud 8 (G8), G9, Digital Outcomes Specialists 2 and the CCS Quality Assurance and Testing frameworks. The new award will support the company’s expanding reach across the UK public sector including central government, local government, health, education, devolved administrations, emergency services, defence and not-for-profit organisations.

As well as existing cloud services from G8 and G9 frameworks, suppliers can now apply to sell cyber security services on G-Cloud 10. This includes services that are assured under these National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) schemes:

Cyber Security Consultancy

Penetration Testing

Cyber Incident Response

Edge Testing is offering security solutions including:

Assessments

Compliance

Security program development

Training

Managed services

Device testing

New MD of Edge Testing Sharon Hamilton commented: “We have a strong public sector practice and an ever growing range of services that support our clients. We welcome the new G-Cloud 10, especially around the provision of security testing services, as they perfectly complement our existing provision in the testing arena.”

Edge’s public sector clients include FSCS, Scottish Prison Service, Student Loans Company, Big Lottery Fund, and South Ayrshire Council.

Public sector clients already benefit from Edge Testing’s Digital Test Hub (DTH) concept, which offers easily accessible remote testing service for in-house applications and back office systems. Currently, the company’s two DTHs are located near Glasgow and in Birmingham, with a third slated for the North of England later in 2018. Both hubs service clients UK-wide.

Edge Testing will be hosting its next ‘Testing as part of DevOps’ events in Birmingham on 10 July and Manchester on 11 July.
