Scope of Business covered by the Code of Practice

Netscan has designed and built its own cloud infrastucture (“Nativecore”) which is located in UK datacentres chosen for high reliability, efficiency and low latency. Over the course of 2013 the Nativecore infrastucture will replace the racked servers located in the UK and USA that have hitherto provided clients with dedicated servers and shared hosting platforms. We confirm that customers can restrict the countries where customer data may be held or processed.

Nativecore provides Cloud Infrastucture that provides the following products and services:

1. Infrastructure for systems integrators for specific large-scale IT projects

2. Infrastructure with appropriate service agreements for specific customer needs (e.g. Games industry, banking and finance)

3. Infrastructure for e-Gov projects (Local and central government Cloud projects)

4. Virtual Private Servers (VPS)

5. Infrastructure for 3rd party web hosting companies

Third-Party Coverage Transparency

The company accepts responsibility for any supplier failure and undertakes to move to alternative suppliers in the fastest possible time in the event of a supplier failure. For critical suppliers, such as data centres, alternative supplier agreements are always in place.
