SBL is delighted to announce the introduction of its pioneering secure hosted managed services into the new Government Cloud Store.

SBL, the IA Specialist reseller based in York, provides a vast array of solutions and services across the Public and Private Sector.  In addition, SBL boasts the necessary security credentials, accreditations, and expertise to host a number of innovative services that can be delivered to secure public sector networks via direct connections.

The G-Cloud presents the perfect medium through which to deliver SBL’s Award Winning DOBUS™ service to the wider Public Sector via a direct link to the GSE.   The DOBUS architecture will further enable the delivery of a number innovative services specifically designed to address the security concerns inherent in the adoption of Cloud strategies.  These services will serve to empower the Public Sector in selecting services via the Cloud Store via a UK Sovereign, high security, and accredited infrastructure.

The services approved and awarded the G-Cloud Status are:


  • This service enables the delivery of real time, clean, and verified patches and updates to End-point Security, Infrastructure, and Application Software over a secure bearer independent of the internet. This patching service commenced in 2003 in the MoD and operates 24x7x365, performs at 99.999% uptime, and has received over 21 million visitors to date. It delivers critical patches (e.g. Anti-virus signature updates) independent of the internet through secured links into Vendor laboratories, and therefore protects users from the threats posed by website spoofing, and the issues of download location oversubscription, both common characteristics within major malware events.

And hosted on the DOBUS architecture:

Egress Switch

  • The service provides on-demand email and file encryption products, to enable organisations and individuals the ability to share information securely. Offering a unique combination of on-premise and hosted cloud infrastructure, patented key management delivers real-time ‘follow the data’ control to ensure that only authorised recipients access confidential information. Used by public and private sector organisations around the world, Egress solutions offer integrated and easy to use software, designed to aid regulatory compliance and streamline user workflow.

SBL look forward to providing these and other capabilities via the Cloud Store environment.
