Becrypt is to present its Trusted Client secure remote working solution to an audience of government buyers and to a reception at Downing Street next week.
Trusted Client was voted for by civil servants and has reached the final round of the Cabinet Office's Innovation Launch Pad scheme. The company claimed that it could offer annual savings of over £150million if it was rolled out across local government.
Keith Ricketts, head of marketing at Becrypt, told SC Magazine that this was a government initiative for innovative technology companies that can show how new technology can save money.
According to Becrypt, Trusted Client enables employee remote working using re-purposed laptops or home computers. This underpins both the government property rationalisation programmes and flexible working initiatives.
Winner of the SC Magazine best remote access award for the last three years, Trusted Client transforms an unmanaged machine into a secure access point. Users insert the Trusted Client device into a USB port and reboot the computer to launch a secure environment, providing a user interface, web browser, email access and standalone applications, completely isolated from the host PC's hard drive.
Bernard Parsons, CEO at Becrypt, said: “We are delighted to have reached the final round of the Innovation Launch Pad and to have the chance to present Trusted Client to such an influential audience.
“More remote and flexible working is an obvious way for all organisations, not just those in the public sector, to reduce costs. However, this always comes with the compromise to data security. Trusted Client provides an innovative, elegant and cost effective solution to this tricky issue.”
