Government security specialist, Regency IT Consulting, has partnered with policy networking company AEP Networks to launch a third-party managed encryption service designed to protect UK Government data up to ‘confidential’ marking, which is communicated over public networks.

“We have identified requirements in a number of public sector organisations for small-scale encrypted links between sites and for home or mobile workers (including on-call critical workers, ministers and very senior staff) that need protected remote access links,” said Steve Lewis, VP business development at AEP Networks.

“But they are put off by the initial investment in equipment and skills development needed to design, implement and manage encrypted communications.”

The service will be delivered by Regency IT Consulting’s team of security specialists, many of whom have previously held senior positions within government information security. It will rely on the AEP Net series of encryptors designed for protected virtual private network (VPN) communications, and the AEP Net Remote portable encryptor for mobile remote communication.

The service is designed for police forces, government departments and agencies and defence contractors, which because they have a limited need for sending encrypted data across networks, find it more difficult to justify the in-house start-up and management costs of encrypted communications.
