Reserve Bank to beef up network security

Keeping the bad guys at bay

The Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) is looking to upgrade its network perimeter security with new firewalls at its Sydney head office and DR site in the north-west of the city.

In tender documents released this week, the RBA is inviting companies to submit a response for the purpose of procuring Secure Computing Firewalls and Maintenance Services for its Sydney head office and "business resumption site" at Norwest Business Park, in the suburb of Bella Vista.

The scope of the tender includes the provision of Secure Computing Sidewinder 7 firewalls to replace the existing Cyberguard firewalls over a two-year migration period.

Secure Computing acquired Cyberguard in 2005 for $US295 million.

The time frame for delivery of the new firewalls is between November 2007 and August 2009, with optional extensions at the RBA's discretion.

The RBA requires that tenderers be a gold partner of Secure Computing for Sidewinder firewall products.
