Integralis and Global Crossing have combined to create a comprehensive solution that provides highly secure IP services to the Government sector in the UK.


By taking Integralis' managed security services and wrapping them around Global Crossing's IP services, the companies have been able to create an offering that ensures customers deploy the very best in secure VPN networks.


Integralis has built a specific Security Operation Centre to partner with Global Crossing's Network Operation Centre, providing enhanced and highly secure IP services to customers. The collaborative approach extends the Network Operation Centre's capabilities by incorporating the MSS portfolio attributes, thereby ensuring resilient support for large numbers of devices and data.


Niall Anderson, chief marketing officer at Global Crossing EMEA, said: “Customers have already been very quick to take advantage of this partnership, with several looking to deploy not only the firewall element of MSS alongside our NOC, but the whole MSS offering.”

Graham Jones, managing director at Integralis UK, said: “We strongly believe that our collective expertise has created a unique proposition that will also appeal greatly to organisations in the government sector. Inter-government departments face many similar challenges to commercial operations and can feel assured that they are utilising a well-proven service from two established organisations with outstanding credentials in both the security and IP industries.”
