Awarded by the New Zealand Government’s lead agency — the Department of Internal Affairs — the certifications mean an acceptable risk position is being achieved across a number of Vodafone’s TaaS Services from their connectivity, contact centre and communications services catalogues, as well as the telco’s legacy connectivity gateway service from their managed security tower of services.
“Having a number of our TaaS Services receiving security certification is a great achievement for Vodafone, and allows us to continue to effectively support the New Zealand Government’s efforts to streamline telecommunications services for their agencies,” says Vodafone Enterprise director Ken Tunnicliffe.
“Our next steps will be to obtain security certification for the remainder of our portfolio of services within the managed security tower.”
And, the telco has a government-specific suite of TaaS certified services called Ready Government, which can be accessed through the government TaaS service catalogue.
The TaaS panel is administered by the government Chief Digital Office at the Department of Internal Affairs.
