Defence has renewed its annual software subscription license for the NC Protect product through archTIS’ newly acquired subsidiary Nucleus Cyber.
The NC Protect solution leverages existing technology investments to provide a simpler, faster and cheaper solution to tailor information protection for file sharing, messaging and chat across Defence’s collaboration tools, such as Microsoft Office 365—SharePoint, Teams, OneDrive, Exchange and Yammer, Dropbox, Nutanix Files and Windows file shares.
The annual contract value for the NC Protect subscription renewal is $148,866.
This is archTIS’ second software license contract signing with the Defence this financial year for securing their information sharing capabilities. It follows archTIS $4.2 million contract win in September to lead risk reduction activities relating to cross-domain classified information sharing, which included $750,000 annual licenses for Kojensi (archTIS’ secure information sharing platform for classified information).
The government has said that it will spend $15 billion on Defence information management and cyber security over the next 10 years.
“I am delighted that the Australian Department of Defence has renewed its subscription of NC Protect to safeguard sensitive information," Kurt Mueffelmann, archTIS Global COO and US President, said. "It’s great to provide immediate validation of our products and shared sales team capabilities so soon after the acquisition.
"Defence is a joint customer of Nucleus Cyber and archTIS. archTIS and Nucleus Cyber attributed based access control (ABAC) technology platforms and shared customer base validate this modern approach to protecting highly sensitive data across the world’s most classified networks. We look forward to the continued expansion of the Defence relationship.”
“This renewal demonstrates the strategic value of the Nucleus Cyber acquisition," Daniel Lai, archTIS Managing Director, said. "It provides our customers with a range of policy enforcement products to secure and share their information assets. The merger now means archTIS can provide award-winning products to secure our clients Microsoft business applications. The Defence renewal validates the quality and uniqueness of NC Protect."
