Sovereign Cloud Provider Vault, Partners with ASX Listed Security Provider archTIS to deliver secure Government collaboration platform
Vault, the secure, sovereign community cloud for government and critical infrastructure today announced a strategic partnership with ASX listed Canberra-based cyber security company archTIS (ASX: AR9). The partnership will leverage archTIS’ Kojensi Gov cloud services, to provide secure information sharing and collaboration solutions for government agencies on Vault’s secure and sovereign, ASD certified cloud environment.
Unlike traditional secure information solutions, the Kojensi platform adapts to the rapidly changing environment of the information user. Kojensi continually evaluates numerous factors about users and their environments to determine whether they should be allowed or denied access to sensitive information at any given point in time. Kojensi’s access control technology provides its users with a way of dynamically managing information sharing within and between organisations, while maintaining security and control over their information.
This strategic partnership between Vault and archTIS will open joint opportunities and accelerate market reach by selling through their combined national partner ecosystem.
“I am excited by what this partnership means, not just for archTIS and Vault, but also for the Australian Government and the protection of Australian data. The archTIS and Vault partnership offers clients a sovereign, proven and unique capability built by two Australian companies that are leading the world in their respective fields,” said Stephen Smith, Chairman for archTIS. “Government agencies that prioritise security and want to have confidence about access to their data, will find this Australian solution very valuable.”
"2018 has seen significant increase in cloud use and there is a growing demand for Software as a Service (SaaS). As the market becomes more mature, citizens are starting to ask 'Where will my data be located?', 'Who will access my data?' and 'Is my data subject to the legal jurisdiction of another country?’ Vault Cloud has partnered with archTIS to bring a secure collaboration SaaS to market with uncompromised security, privacy and sovereignty" said Rupert Taylor-Price, Founder and CEO, Vault.
“With the high volume of documents and sensitive information being reproduced and shared digitally it’s critical that security and sovereignty are a priority. Being able to communicate and work together across governmental agencies and with our partners is a necessity if we are going to continue to combat terrorism and aid in humanitarian efforts across the world.” he added.
archTIS will launch its Beta version of Kojensi Gov on Vault Cloud later this year, followed by the product’s commercial market launch in 2019. archTIS became a publicly listed company on 21 September 2018. It has applied for patent protection of the core intellectual property that underpins its access control technology.
