It established itself early on as a secure provider to the Public Sector and, today, Memset’s revolutionary Internet to PSN Gateway enables easy to use, flexible and secure data exchange between Internet and PSN-Connected Infrastructure.
The Public Services Network was originally setup to enable data sharing across government departments and external partners who in combination provided services within a specific area of operation and used the same data and where business units, with a similar risk profile, shared risk appetite and common governance framework formed a Community of Interest. It is an interconnected "network of networks" designed to increase efficiency and reduce overall public expenditure replacing the multitude of separately procured and managed networks serving various segments of the UK public sector including Education, Health, Central Government, Local Government.
Memset’s innovative solution provides accredited, flexible and secure routing between their PSN and Internet-connected hosting environments and Datum’s data centres. This routing enables communication between systems hosted at Datum and on the wider PSN, and provides users with control and authority over their applications and data.
