E2BN Think IT aims to "make IT easy for schools", helping educational establishments set a strategy that's right for them, make recommendations, and help select the right suppliers, all under one simple-to-administer contract.

Think IT is recommended by DfE as part of their Deals for Schools and is used by the Welsh Government, MoD, over 20 Local Authorities and hundreds of schools and Multi-Academy Trusts.

In joining the framework, Chess ICT significantly increases the range and quality of cyber-security solutions available to Public Sector organisations.

Commenting on the inclusion in the framework, Jez Turner, Group Sales Director explained:

“Schools and local authorities recognise how vital it is to keep their students and staff secure in a rapidly changing online world. With over 20 years’ cybersecurity experience, we’re delighted to have the opportunity of providing expertise and support, and to further strengthen our commitment to these key sectors.”

Paul Wyatt-Pike, Director Think IT said:

“We’re delighted to have Chess join the Think IT framework.  Their scale, solutions and unique approach to cybersecurity will bring greatly needed additional protection options to Public Sector organisations across the country”.

Framework customers will benefit from Chess’s full range of consultancy, professional and managed services and support, including Crest accredited Pen Testers.
