KPN Security may provide security products and services to more than 330 municipalities and municipal alliances.

The municipal tender GGI-Veilig is part of the Municipal Common Infrastructure and should increase the digital resilience of municipalities. Municipalities save on procurement costs by collectively acquiring a coherent portfolio of products and services. In addition, the costs of using the products and services are lower.

KPN

KPN has now won the tender. Over the next five years, Dutch municipalities will be able to turn to KPN for expertise services in the field of security and for security products and services such as firewalls, anti-DDoS and endpoint protection.

The provider may provide these services and products on all three unsubscribed parcels. Within lot 1 for managed SIEM/SOC services, KPN is the only supplier to fulfil the role of Managed Security Service Provider across all lots.

Marieke Snoep, director of the business market at KPN, says that the company is pleased that we can help make the Netherlands safer. As a leading telecom and ICT player, we have the technology and the capacity to fill in the complete security problem for municipalities. Municipalities can come to us for all their security matters.

Telindus has also won part of the tender, it was announced last week. Together with KPN and third winner Protinus, the company will provide the 330 municipalities with, among other things, e-mail filtering, end point protection and enterprise mobility management.
