Cumbria County Council

Easy-to-use file-sharing solution with government-grade security

Cumbria County Council is a large public sector organisation in the north west of England. The Council has approximately 4,000 users on their ICT network some of whom have a regular requirement to share information with external partners, stakeholders and members of the public.

In recognising that they urgently needed to adopt an easy-to-use, file sharing solution, that provided security up to Impact Level 2 (IL2 / Official), and could be easily deployed with little or no ICT involvement in setup or on-going administration, the Council implemented Objective Connect.
