Yoti has announced that its services will once again be available to public organizations in the UK as part of the country’s Crown Commercial Services G-Cloud framework. G-Cloud is a list of approved cloud services that was created to make it easier for public entities to purchase those services without the need for a lengthy vetting process.
The G-Cloud framework helps ensure that the UK’s public sector has access to the latest cybersecurity tech, and provides tech companies with direct access to a specialized and highly interested market. According to Yoti, G-Cloud has facilitated more than £4.72 billion in sales since it was launched in 2012.
Yoti will be offering a range of services as a G-Cloud vendor, the most notable being e-signing, age estimation, and identity verification and authentication. The company is best known for its digital identity platform, which has been leveraged for everything from alcohol sales to the distribution of charitable event tickets.
Of course, Yoti has already partnered with government agencies on more than one occasion. Yoti is now an accepted form of authentication for the Scottish Government’s Improvement Service, and it was also a key technology component that enabled the first blockchain-based home sale in the UK.
