MASS extends military-grade cloud-based network capability

Cohort plc company, MASS, has developed a new military-grade cloud-based network capability that provides office functionality, messaging, private secured intranet, video calling and secured software all hosted on UK Government approved systems.

Organisations from energy companies, humanitarian agencies and election monitors in post-conflict countries can now access a military-grade command and control capability hosted securely in the cloud via the G Cloud 10 portal.

The new service can be deployed in multiple areas anywhere in the world at any scale, and can be tailored to include specialist customer applications and databases. The software is also adaptable for smaller organisations who may need the service intermittently and can utilise it on future occasions.

Additional functionality can be specified to include ERP and GIS applications and database hosting. As well as options such as the provision of ruggedised end user computing devices, encryption of data at rest and in transit, global connectivity by satellite, local encrypted private telephony, and connectivity over digital radio, mobile telephony or PMR in deployed locations.

Steve Townsend, Training and Operational Support Group Head, said: “The key features of our military-grade, operationally proven Command and Control solution are now available for the first time beyond Government agencies, with the added simplicity of being operated in the cloud. 

“It takes time to set up new IT infrastructure in-house and a deployable infrastructure is an expensive resource to be underutilised. Our solution gives them rapid capability, agile deployment options, peace of mind during operations from encrypted security, and flexibility over contract length.”
