Sentinel by SCC

You hold sensitive public sector data – Sentinel protects it.

Sentinel by SCC not only provides faster IT implementation but also keeps your data secure to Official / Official Sensitive (CESG IL2 and IL3) security standards, as the most established and cost-effective Cloud solution from the first Pan-Government Accredited provider. For 40 years, SCC has been the trusted IT partner for the UK’s critical national infrastructure.

The Secure Community Cloud for Public Sector
Sentinel by SCC is a Community Cloud, built specifically for only Public Sector customers, in our award winning data centre here in the UK.

  • Government-accredited secure data solution
  • More agile IT procurement
  • Economies of scale
  • Flexibility to grow and release resources as needed
  • Lower-cost 30-day contracts, removes ‘lock-ins’
  • Hosted at SCC’s multi award-winning Data Centres in the UK

The Challenge

Public Sector organisations are repeatedly scrutinised over their service delivery, often resulting from being seriously hamstrung by legacy systems and inflexible long-term contracts. In many cases, these legacy systems have led to supplier ‘lock-in’, putting government businesses at the mercy of the original providers.

The Solution

SCC understands the unique needs, pressures, risk mitigation strategies and deployment methodologies to help you deliver the services your organisation demands. Sentinel by SCC removes contract lock-ins, simplifies integration, shortens development times, reduces waste and, most importantly, lowers cost. It facilitates rapid deployment of on-demand services and the scaling of IT resources.

The Benefits

The UK government’s G-Cloud programme was launched to provide a framework through which Public Sector bodies can buy Cloud services from an increased range of pre-approved vendors. Sentinel by SCC gives Public Sector bodies the ability to share the cost of the infrastructure between multiple organisations, whilst taking advantage of latest technologies, best practice solutions and economies of scale. It provides utility-based pricing models and Official / Official Sensitive (IL2 / IL3) security which exceeds government requirements and is completely disconnected from the other platforms hosted within our award winning data centre.

Traditional v Sentinel by SCC

Where traditionally, organisations have been bound into long-term IT contracts with huge financial exit penalties, SCC contracts can be as short as 30 days, enabling you to buy into services only when you need them and step away when you don’t. We have experience, gained over 40 years, of designing, developing, implementing and operating a broad range of Cloud services. This has included the full range from private cloud environments through to fully managed community and public cloud services.
