What is G-Cloud 12, cloud software services ?

With scalable services and a pay for what you use system in place, organisations have the ability to increase or decrease what they need with ease.

Airbus Secure Communications’ expertise in cloud technology

The cloud presents an unparalleled opportunity for many organisations. At the same time, it opens the door to a host of security and privacy issues for Government, Public Sector, Emergency Services and organisations that take care of Critical National Infrastructure (CNI). Taking advantage of cloud services using common platforms can create specific security and compliance issues for organisations that demand and must comply with high levels of security and privacy. Airbus cloud solutions take care of the unknown, delivering robust and scalable services to enable organisations to reap the benefits associated with cloud services.
