Developing cyber capabilities with Cybermerc

Another milestone at AUCloud this week, working with Matthew Nevin and Paul Nevin of Cybermerc as they build out another great locally grown cyber capability. As we continue to scale up our ecosystem of partners and strategic alliances, a key area of focus is supporting Australian companies to develop and implement world-leading cybersecurity solutions.

As with local Canberra based partner Cybermerc, AUCloud is committed to working with companies to support and grow Australia’s sovereign cybersecurity capability. As 2019 draws to a close, we look forward to a productive 2020 with Matt, Paul, and the Cybermerc team.


New strategic partnership to bring secure collaboration and communications to government

A great article in this edition of Defence Connect talking about the new AUCloud / Wickr / CISTECH Solutions offering to bring secure collaboration and communications to Australia’s government. Commenting on the partnership AUCloud’s COO Brad Bastow made the point,

“Protecting communication across the Australian government and critical infrastructure is fundamental to the security of the entire country . . . . The partnership between AUCloud, CISTECH and Wickr delivers the only Australian sovereign, enterprise grade, secure communications solution for the government.”

AUCloud corporate video

Would you be prepared to ship our iconic national monuments overseas? Well, at AUCloud we feel exactly the same way about data. Have a look at our latest video and you’ll get just how committed we are about protecting the data of Australian citizens and making sure it stays in Australia – always #sovereignty #cybersecuritythreats

In a world with no hard-cyber boarders, citizens want certainty, and transparency about where their data is and where it goes. As an Australian Sovereign Cloud infrastructure-as-a-service provider, our priority is securing the data of Australians. With a single-minded focus on securing the trust of government agencies, businesses and the Australian public every architectural, technical and operational aspect of the AUCloud platform, is founded on the best-of-breed security practice and technology. That’s why at AUCloud we are “Engineered to Protected”, security from the ground up.


AIIA Canberra Managers forum

‘Electric’, energy filled presentation today by Minister Stuart Robert at the AIIA Canberra Manager’s Forum MC’d by Greg Boorer. This rounded out AUCloud’s sponsorship support of the AIIA CMF events for 2019; and what a way to finish.

The Minister’s speech put customer service delivery front and centre of his Services Australia agenda, indeed he talked to ‘delighting’ Australian citizens with his (and his Portfolio Agencies) determination to make Government ‘digital’ service delivery smarter, faster and better. He talked too about working with industry, breaking down departmental silos and rethinking long standing (and increasingly out of date) funding models.

Importantly he stressed his desire to work with Australian businesses – music to the ears of many of the Canberra based SMEs in the room – and obviously AUCloud. An energetic and refreshing vision, clearly backed by his Departmental Heads Randall Brugeaud, Renée Leon and Martin Hoffman.

What is important is that the partnership delivers a Whole of Government approach to PROTECTED communications including secure cross device communications and compliant cross agency collaboration – with data on a secure, sovereign cloud platform. This initiative provides the only viable large scale enterprise solution for protected communications – a long awaited capability for Government.

AUCloud & Veeam Case study

In this case study with Veeam Software, AUCloud talks about how we have implemented Veeam to support back up of customer email, SharePoint and Office 365 systems. Based on our experience we make the point that “the Cisco validated designs around integration with Veeam made it (O365 Backup) easy to set up and use” – subsequently reinforced by one of our customers (in their own words) – “I’m pleased to report that we had a case to restore a lost folder from someone’s mailbox yesterday and it was easy as pie!”.

Thanks Veeam Backup & Replication and Cisco
