Hosting and Security

Strict protocols on the management and
delivery of your projects and built assets.

ISO 27001 certified
UK datacentre

In this heightened age of information security and governance, governments and private clients are demanding strict protocols on the management and delivery of their projects and built assets.  

As an ISO 27001 certified UK business with ISO 27001 certified UK datacentres, UK support and UK based development staff, government and local authority clients are assured that no data will leave or be accessed outside the United Kingdom.

If you work outside the UK, that’s not a problem either. We have the capability to deploy on-premise, with AWS or Microsoft Azure.

Extra security options

Security has always been a high priority for GroupBC. Not only can we enforce strong passwords but now we offer an extra level of security with a choice from Two Factor Authentication similar to internet banking, or SAML, a third-party identity provider (e.g. Microsoft Azure Active Directory), enabling single sign-on.

The aboves ensures that we remain one of the most secure CDE solution providers in the UK and gives you peace of mind of the security of your data.

 

Cloud security

If you need added assurance, we are listed on the Crown Commercial Services G-Cloud 10 which ensures suppliers have met the standards laid out in the G-Cloud framework and are compliant with them. G-Cloud 10 reassures buyers that the technology on offer is aligned to the National Cloud Security Centre’s 14 principles on cloud security, ensuring fully secure access and storage of data, and integrity of suppliers.

The Private Cloud

With security vital on any construction project, our own cyber security is second to none. We don’t make you share cloud space with other clients, you have your own private cloud, meaning you have full control over your data and solution. This gives you greater configuration and branding options, and ensures your solution can expand to support your digital information management strategy, as it develops and matures.
