The archTis subsidiary’s annual software subscription licence has been renewed by the Department of Defence.
Defence has renewed a software subscription licence for archTIS subsidiary Nucleus Cyber’s NC Protect product, valued at $148,866 per year.
According to archTIS, the contract extension demonstrates the value of the NC Protect product and its attribute-based access controls (ABAC) security model with the Microsoft software stack for Defence.
The NC Protect solution is designed to leverage existing technology investments to provide a simpler, faster and cheaper solution aimed at tailoring information protection for file sharing, messaging and chat across an organisation’s collaboration tools.
“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 president of the US division, 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.”
He continued: “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.”
Daniel Lai, archTIS managing director, said the renewal demonstrates the strategic value of the Nucleus Cyber acquisition.
“The Defence renewal validates the quality and uniqueness of NC Protect,” he said.
“This renewal and our recent Kojensi sales strongly position archTIS as a key provider of information security products to the Australian Department of Defence.”
This marks the archTIS group’s second software license contract with the Department of Defence over the 2021 financial year (FY21).
ArchTIS recently secured a $4.2 million contract to lead risk reduction activities relating to cross-domain classified information sharing, which included $750,000 annual licences for Kojensi (archTIS’ secure information sharing platform for classified information).
