Cyber Essentials Certification ✔

We’re delighted to have received the Government-backed Cyber Essentials certification. Illustrating our compliance with the cyber security standard.

What is the Cyber Essentials Accreditation?

Cyber Essentials is a UK government led scheme that was originally launched in 2014. Designed as an assessment strategy, the Cyber Essentials standard confirms our systems comply with essential cyber security controls.

What does Cyber Essentials Cover?

The scheme covers five control categories which cover the most prominent cyber risks organisations face. These include:

  • Firewall Security: Acting as a buffer, firewalls allow incoming internet traffic to be analysed to assess whether or not it should be allowed on to your network.
  • Secure Configuration: Devices and software should be securely configured to minimise the risk of unauthorised access to data. All devices and accounts should always be password protected. We use two-factor authentication where applicable.
  • User Access Control: Access to data should be controlled – accounts with administrative privileges should only be used to perform administrative tasks.
  • Malware protection: Certified companies are required to demonstrate that they have a robust anti-malware solution in place. This helps to prevent servers and end-user devices from being infected by malicious software.
  • Keeping up to date: Also known as ‘patching’. In order to maintain optimum levels of cyber security it is important for companies to ensure all devices, operating systems and software are kept up to date at all times.

We take our data security very seriously, our recent certification offers assurance for this. To discuss your IoT projects and any upcoming tenders, please contact our team on +44 (0)1484 599544 or email contact@alliot.co.uk.

What we’re doing to prepare for COVID-19

Coronavirus – What we’re doing to prepare

Given the current status of the Coronavirus pandemic, we would like to share some information on the measures we have put in place this week to ensure the long term reliability of Alliot as a distributor. We feel that our key function is to keep our warehouse operating, receiving stock and shipping out our customer orders, we have therefore taken the decision to physically isolate our warehouse operation team from the rest of the business and have enforced a remote working policy for all Alliot employees who are able to perform their roles outside of the office.

Our thinking is that the majority of our staff are trained to be able to work in the warehouse, should one of our existing warehouse team catch COVID-19 we may be forced to send the whole team home. In this instance, we would deep clean the area immediately and rotate our home working staff to cover these roles and maintain operation.

We would like to reassure our partners that there are no current stock issues and no current personnel issues. We are taking this bold and early step to mitigate the future risk to our staff, our business and our customers.

We maintain focused on providing the very best services and fast delivery times to support you and your business. The intentions of these measures are to:

  • Protect our employees from being put at risk of catching COVID-19
  • Provide continuity to ALL of our operations, protecting our customers from supply issues
  • To continue to provide you with an outstanding level of service

Like everyone else, we are currently in unchartered territory, but as part of ProVu holdings, we are well accustomed to utilising the technologies available and are in a strong positionto adapt to this work methodology. Our move to send everyone home to work has been in place for two days and has gone extremely well with no disruption to our operations.

We will keep you updated with further changes as and when we have more information.

Thank you for your continued support.

The Alliot Team.
