Secure File Transfer for Government and Public Services

Maytech provide a cloud platform that allows secure and reliable data transfer for the public sector.

Government organisations, including local authorities, InnovateUK and Defra, use Maytech services to share data with counterparties and to acquire data from external organisations and the public.

Using Maytech, public sector data can be transferred using SFTP, FTPS, HTTPS, PGP or using automated systems. Data acquisition workflows can be optimised using integrated web forms to collect files and any associated meta data required. A public API is also available to facilitate additional custom workflows.

All Maytech’s government file transfer products feature central administrative controls, full audit trails and end-to-end encryption providing full control and visibility of data for data owners. They comply with international standards including PCI-DSS and EU Data Protection.

Pan Government Accredited File Sharing

Maytech services are Pan Government Accredited for Official Sensitive Data. That means IT departments in government can optimise data sharing, externally with third parties outside government networks, safe in the knowledge that the correct level of security classification controls are in place.

Maytech is ISO 27001 certified and audited by Lloyd’s Register.
