INTERCEDE GROUP plc

('Intercede', the ‘Company' or the ‘Group') 

New Contract Award 

Intercede, the software and service company specialising in identity, credential management and secure mobility, announces it has signed a contract with a UK Government Ministerial department.

 Under this agreement, Intercede will supply services to enable the customer to embed the MyID product for employees into its network infrastructure. This will be used to provide digital identities to staff involved in international collaboration. Financially, the new contract will generate revenue for the Group of around £250,000 in the current financial year and potentially up to £500,000 in the following year.

 Intercede’s MyID will enable this customer to eliminate a reliance on the use of potentially insecure passwords for secure authentication. In doing so, the department will become more resistant to social engineering and other cyber-attacks based on compromising employee login details. This makes it easier for the UK Government to meet its international obligations for secure partnership with other governments around the world. 

Intercede has been supplying secure solutions to UK government agencies for more than 15 years.

Richard Parris, Chairman & Chief Executive of Intercede, said: 

“This contract was secured following a competitive tender process. Our success demonstrates that Intercede’s MyID product and services remains the first choice for security aware customers seeking to replace password-based authentication with strong digital credentials. This deployment is similar to solutions previously sold to the Australian, Canadian and US governments.”
