The IT company’s cloud offering has achieved an elevated security status.  

Acquia has secured the ‘Protected’ security status on selected deployments after completing an Infosec Registered Assessors Program (IRAP) assessment.

The IRAP assessment, conducted by a certified third-party, was completed to ensure cloud services are secured with automated and comprehensive security controls for authorised use by the Commonwealth government.


The company’s Drupal Cloud offering – designed to assemble and deploy digital experiences, including websites, portals, microsites and mobile apps – can now be used across government agencies for secure access to the data network.

“Meeting IRAP compliance at the ‘Protected’ level signifies Acquia’s continued investment in our security posture, as well as the region and public sector,” Steven Hayes, Acquia’s general manager, Asia-Pacific and Japan, said.

“We look forward to working with Australian government departments and assisting them with their Drupal Cloud requirements.”


The Drupal Cloud, purchased via the AWS Marketplace, is tipped to reduce paperwork and streamline the RFP process.

Acquia is a founding member of the Drupal Steward Program, a web application firewall introduced by the Drupal Association and operated with the Drupal Security team.
