Defence Share/Kahootz Cloud Collaboration System supports MOD and Team Defence partners in move to remote working.
TD-Info Council member Kahootz has reported their Defence Share collaboration platform has supported a spike in new projects in recent weeks. Operated in partnership with the MOD, the platform is the only system DE&S have accredited for collaboration at OFFICIAL SENSITIVE using the public cloud. The tool is used across all of the MOD Top Level Budgets (TLBs) to improve their collaboration and, during the currently climate, is allowing this work to take place off the internal private networks, freeing up valuable bandwidth for other services.
Alongside the service provided to the MOD, Kahootz is also supporting a large amount of the Team Defence community, particularly the prime contractors, in their work supporting critical projects where continuity is paramount.
John Glover, the Kahootz Sales and Marketing Director, said “because you can access Kahootz securely through your browser, without needing VPN or other restrictive access tools, we have been able to scale quickly to support the large numbers of new users. This has included the MOD and defence industry, as well as Cabinet Office, NHS and Department of Health and Social Care, who are all working very hard to keep the country safe, we are proud to be doing our small part to support them”
Kahootz have recently launched a #Covid19Kindess campaign, offering projects of up to 100 users free access to the tool for up to 3 months. For more details on this please see here.
