Nexor is now able to supply its CyberShield Secure™ range of services, as already procured by NATO and the European Defence Agency, to UK HMG under the MOD FATS4 contract vehicle.

FATS4 is a two-year multi-participant supplier vehicle for the purchase of a range of general and specialist technical support services. The contract was let on 6 April 2012 by the UK MOD, but is open to the wider government purchasing community.

Nexor brings a wealth of security capability to the framework based on the company’s 20 year heritage in communications, information exchange and cross domain interoperability. In particular, Nexor’s CyberShield Secure™ offerings include a full methodology and facility for engineering security critical software and building integrated solutions in this specialised arena. CyberShield Secure™ is built on Information Assurance (IA) best practice in accordance with CESG guidelines.

Steve Kingan, Nexor Chief Executive Officer comments: “With the increased need for secure and reliable information exchange both in MOD and in an increasing number of government departments, being able to make our security services available quickly and easily through FATS4 is a great benefit to customers and to Nexor alike.

NATO and the European Defence Agency are just two of our customers that have already realised the benefits of awarding business directly to an agile and specialised SME. They have seen cost savings and high quality deliverables in improved timescales by exploiting our cross domain experience and expertise. We look forward to helping the UK Government achieve the same sort of results by participating in research, prototyping, development and integration work to improve the information superiority and cyber threat mitigation agendas.”

FATS4 comprises a series of “Broad” and “Narrow” category areas (BCAs and NCAs); Nexor has qualified in the following:

  • BCA – Electrical and mechanical: NCAs – data exchange formats; interoperability standards; interoperability software; system architecture; communications and CIS security systems; communications protocols.
  • BCA – Front line/operational Information Technology: NCAs – software engineering; protocol technology; secure computing; distributed system security; rapid prototyping; research IT.
