Trustmarque has broadened its G-Cloud offering to provide even more choice for public sector customers going through digital transformation.
We’ve recently been approved to offer additional Security Management services on G-Cloud 11, the procurement framework for public sector organisations in the UK to buy cloud-based products and services.
The new services sit alongside our existing G-Cloud offer, meaning that Trustmarque now provides a broader range of services across all three areas of the framework, including cloud hosting, cloud software and cloud support. We’ve also diversified the vendors available to customers, adding Symantec and ProofPoint to the list of options.
David Neighbour – Trustmarque’s Framework Manager – said: “We are delighted to have broadened our G-Cloud offering this year to include Security Management. We’ve always had core propositions on the Digital Marketplace that help transform the way organisations operate including Azure, Modern Workplace technologies and ITAM (IT Asset Management). But now, with new security products and services such as a Cloud Security Workshop, we are better equipped than ever to support public sector organisations with their cloud adoption.”
“We can take customer’s requirements and build a bespoke G-Cloud ready proposition. “
What is G-Cloud 11?
The G-Cloud 11 framework is an agreement between the Government via Crown Commercial Services and suppliers who provide cloud-based services to the UK public sector. G-Cloud services are divided into three categories, or ‘lots’:
- Cloud hosting, for example content delivery networks or load balancing services
- Cloud software, for example accounting tools or customer service management software
- Cloud support, for example migration services or ongoing
G-Cloud is available through the Digital Marketplace which helps public sector organisations find cloud technology and specialist services for digital projects.
All public sector organisations, including agencies and arm’s length bodies, can use the Digital Marketplace.

A presence on all major frameworks including DAS

The DAS framework was rolled out by the Crown Commercial Service (CCS) on 22nd February 2019. It allows public sector organisations to buy, implement, test and deliver a broad range of software solutions, as well as essential hardware and professional services, in one simple procurement.
