Procurement of Egress Protect licensing to
replace the Council's existing expiring agreement.
The Council's existing Egress Protect
agreement expired on 25th February 2023. The Council continues to
use Egress for secure email and attachment sending. A licensing
arrangement to enable continued use is therefore considered
necessary at this time.
Microsoft 365 technologies that are included
within our current core licensing with Microsoft including
Sensitivity Labels and OneDrive were considered. Significant work
is required to migrate business areas onto these, and some
use-cases for Egress would require further investigation.
This was not able to be prioritised above other current business priorities prior to the expiry date, and therefore renewal was determined necessary at this time.
