Mathew Gilliat-Smith, EVP at Convergent commented: “It has been a pleasure to work with the Evercast team who have demonstrated a proactive approach to cloud security. We helped them navigate their way through the new MPA Best Practices and TPN assessment procedures, and are delighted to have completed the first Gold Shield assessment.” He went on to say: “Now that TPN+ supports cloud security Best Practices it’s encouraging to see the growing number of SaaS application providers approaching us about participation in the TPN+ program.”
