LONDON, July 11, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GovDelivery, a leader in cloud-based public sector communication solutions, announced today that it has achieved Impact Level 2 (IL2) security accreditation as part of its G-Cloud programme. GovDelivery's new status follows only a year after the company was accepted into the UK Government's landmark G-Cloud programme and weeks after the addition of the company's Transactional Messaging Service (TMS) solution to G-Cloud III. Furthermore, this qualification sets GovDelivery apart as the only IL2-accredited G-Cloud provider currently offering digital communications management, e-alerts and e-newsletters.
IL2 accreditation means that UK public sector organisations can be confident that GovDelivery has met specific security requirements for handling UK citizen data. This accreditation builds upon the ISO 27001 certification that GovDelivery achieved earlier this year, and entailed review of the company's defences by the UK Government's National Technical Authority for Information Assurance, CESG.
"With a deep appreciation for the security standards required by the G-Cloud programme, achieving IL2 accreditation demonstrates how seriously we take our partnerships with our many public sector clients," said Dave Worsell, Director of Government Solutions, GovDelivery UK. "As the only CloudStore provider of Digital Communication Management and Transactional Messaging solutions, we are singularly focused on helping the public sector improve government-to-citizen interactions within a highly secure environment. Achieving IL2 accreditation allows GovDelivery to better serve UK public sector organisations and citizens."
