Aegis9 and Australian Data Centres have announced a strategic partnership to provide customers access to a shared or dedicated cyber security operation centre, with stringent controls to assure both the security and reliability of the complete supply chain.
The partnership will deliver Aegis9’s next-generation cyber security operations and platform hosted and managed by Australian Data Centres within its secure data centre facility in Canberra.
“Aegis9 is thrilled to be part of such an exciting venture that brings together the key elements of security and sovereignty to protect critical data and services” Ben Aldridge, Co-Founder/CEO of Aegis9 said. “This initiative allows us to provide an end-to-end capability that can deliver scalable and comprehensive security solutions to government, private industry and critical infrastructure. Over the coming weeks, we’ll be socialising our extensive capability roadmap, which is reflective of the thought leadership behind the design and build.”
The Cyber Security Operation Centre is being developed and managed by Aegis9 and will be available from a Zone 4 accredited (physical security) floor space within the Australian Data Centre facility. Australian Data Centre has reserved additional space to expand operations and accommodate multiple clients requiring their own dedicated secure compartmented spaces.
“Security is paramount to our customers and our offering includes both a Cyber Security Operations Centre (CSOC) and a customer focused security accreditation and governance framework adaptable to the Government’s security framework that is consistent with existing policies and procedures,” Rob Kelly, Managing Director, Australian Data Centres, said. “An ongoing security management programme with cyclical compliance, assurance, and accreditation activities, such as penetration testing and IRAP assessments, will be implemented to give ongoing confidence that our hybrid and multi-cloud solution, and the systems it hosts, remain secure.”
The manned, operational Cyber Security Operation Centre will provide a holistic view of the threat environment, including insider threat, and a coordinated response mechanism.
This partnership will allow ADC to address the parliamentary inquiry into cyber resilience, by offering ongoing analysis of cyber maturity and compliance.
