Gradian significantly strengthens presence on Government’s new G-Cloud 11 platform

Jul 2, 2019 | News

Year on year, Gradian have strengthened their listing on the Government’s G-Cloud platform (digital marketplace) and this year is no exception.

Notably the G-Cloud 11 expansion includes additional technology listings from both Valimail and Echoworx, and also several listings based on Gradian’s own Value-Added Products. This new emphasis on expanded tech and “home-grown” service offerings mirrors Gradian’s strategic approach to market. Focus is now on enhancing top-tier technologies with the application of a personalised Gradian service wrapper.

The fully expanded listing now comprises:

Gradian Value Added Products
Gradian’s Technical Account Service Plan (TASP™)
Gradian Support for Symantec Products
Gradian’s Managed Configuration Service
Gradian’s Professional Services for Symantec Technology Solution Delivery

Additional Technologies

Symantec’s Email Security Service
Symantec’s Email Fraud Prevention (EFP)
Symantec’s Managed Endpoint Detection & Response

With 14 of their listings under the Cloud Software category, Gradian’s 4 “home-grown” service wrappers are also listed under Cloud Support within the below sub-categories:

Setup and migration
Quality assurance and performance testing
Security services
Ongoing support

A Gradian spokesperson commented on the benefits of their additional exposure on the new framework:

Expanding our presence on G-Cloud 11 with these additional awards enables the public sector bodies to easily take advantage of the additional value Gradian brings to our cherry-picked technology stack. It dovetails perfectly with our initiative to make Gradian easy to work with.

The idea of G-Cloud is to cut out a large proportion of “due diligence” on the part of public sector as this will already have been undertaken prior to listing; it effectively expedites the buying process.

In a nutshell it’s all about increasing peace of mind, the message is that Gradian is a credible and safe pair of hands.
