Over the last four years, Huddle has become the leader in secure collaboration and is now the content collaboration platform of choice for 80 percent of central UK government departments.

Not limiting ourselves to the UK, Huddle improves information management and collaboration in numerous European government organizations, including Belgium, Italy and Spain (to name just a few), numerous U.S. state governments and national organizations such as NASA. Today, it gives me great pleasure to announce that we’re further consolidating our leadership in government thanks to a strategic partnership and technology development agreement with In-Q-Tel (IQT).

There are many reasons behind government organizations’ shift from legacy on-premise technology to cloud tools and services. Advantages such as increased innovation, improved flexibility, reduced costs and increased demand for government organizations to share and collaborate more efficiently with each other and externally with stakeholders, contractors and partners have all driven a leap to the cloud.

And Huddle has proved absolutely instrumental in driving government organizations’ uptake of cloud computing, providing the most comprehensive and innovative offering required to support the new ways of working. Some Huddle highlights include:

  • More than 100,000 organizations worldwide trust Huddle with their data
  • The company has offices across the UK and U.S., including London, New York, San Francisco and Washington D.C.
  • Huddle is the biggest cloud in the UK government and the dominant supplier of government’s content collaboration services
  • The company secured 89 percent of all spend through the UK government’s G-Cloud framework within the first two months of it launching
  • Huddle IL3 was the first commercial public cloud service to be modified and accredited for pan-government collaboration on RESTRICTED data

As a result of our partnership with In-Q-Tel, a FISMA (Federal Information Security Management Act of 2002) certified instance of Huddle is being developed to enable U.S. government agencies and organizations to securely discover, access, and work on content with people. The technology is currently being developed for two In-Q-Tel customer agencies: the Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate and the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency.

This In-Q-Tel partnership presents further evidence that governments worldwide are now placing cloud technology at the heart of their campaigns to increase efficiency and productivity, and reduce IT costs. We are absolutely delighted that we can now bring our government and intelligent content collaboration expertise to the U.S. government.

The exponential growth of cloud computing in government is also a clear indication that security should no longer be a concern for enterprises. If the cloud meets the security and uptime requirements of governments across the globe, isn’t it time for enterprises to start looking at how they too can reap its advantages?
