Secure File Transfer for Councils

County, local, district and borough councils rely on the ability to communicate and share information with external bodies quickly and efficiently.  Responsible for a wide range of public services from education and social care to tax collection and housing, much of the data that is handled by council employees on a daily basis is highly sensitive.  Secure file transfer for councils is a necessity.  Without adequate control and protection this data could fall into the wrong hands, yet employees continue to send information via insecure channels.

Pro2col can help councils to avoid the penalties and risk to reputation that follow a data breach, without restricting the use of your existing technology or disrupting day-to-day operations.  In fact, we can provide solutions that will integrate with a range of business technologies to streamline operations and improve productivity. We work with councils throughout the UK to provide cost-effective managed file transfersolutions that secure the delivery of sensitive data.  As independent consultants, we have formed trusted relationships with some of the industries leading managed file transfer vendors. This means we can offer our customers the most appropriate solution for their needs and budget.


“Our users and partners are very happy, we have successfully changed our file transfer methods with minimal disruption, we have very robust measures in place to prevent leaked data, and we’ve exceeded all of our objectives for the project.”
