Our capability and experience.

Our ability to consolidate, integrate and then manage multiple telecoms and network suppliers into a single, centralised and flexible contract, has proved an attractive and cost effective option for many public sector organisations.

Our customers include Wiltshire Council, Cornwall Council, Durham County Council, University College London Hospitals and the London NHS trust.

With communications increasingly moving to a fluid IP-based world, Azzurri’s deep experience of managing fixed and mobile telephony and data networks means we’re very well placed to help your organisations simplify your communications and use technology to support your objectives.

Cyber Essentials Plus

In 2015, Azzurri was awarded the Government’s enhanced cyber security accreditation, Cyber Essentials Plus.

By adding Cyber Essentials Plus to our already strong security credentials and endorsements, customers can be assured that Azzurri’s ICON managed communications services are delivered using systems and processes that are optimised to protect their data and their networks.

This latest accreditation is an external validation of Azzurri’s trusted managed service capability which already includes adherence to ISO 9000 and ISO 27001 standards. It further adds to Azzurri’s credibility when providing services to the public sector with cyber security so high on the agenda of all organisations following the high-profile breaches and attacks of 2014.
