NORTH-east cyber security specialist, Techforce has secured contracts worth up to £370,000 over recent months as it looks towards future growth.
The announcement follows the Aberdeen-based company’s listing in the highly-competitive G-Cloud 12 framework for the second consecutive year.
Its presence in the Government’s cloud computing and IT service procurement platform means that the company’s services can be accessed by all UK public sector bodies and organisations seeking support.
Through this framework, TechForce, which is headquartered in Balmoral Hub, has agreed a two-year deal, with the option of two additional 12-month extensions, to provide cyber security awareness training – via its premium partnership with KnowBe4 – to UK Research and Innovation (UKRI).
Two similar agreements, both awarded on an initial one-year basis, will allow TechForce to protect critical data from rising online threats for other national organisations.
Jai Aenugu, managing director, said: “For TechForce to have been awarded a place in this prestigious framework for the second year in a row is a proud moment for me and the rest of the team.“Being part of G-Cloud, alongside many established businesses that we looked up to when establishing a start-up in Aberdeen, has been a significant achievement for the business.
“Our first three contracts, awarded since first joining the initiative in 2019, have all come about during our current financial year – after several months of hard work. Especially this year, it has been extremely welcome to have some positive news to share and allows us to look to the future with some optimism.
“The business is continuing to progress and develop, while the opportunity to tender for, and win, important contracts like these allows the whole team to continue to test our abilities and keep improving what we do.”
