Home Deals Fujitsu supports Clean Energy Regulator with ServiceNow protected cloud

Fujitsu has announced that the Clean Energy Regulator will use ServiceNow in the Protected Cloud platform as a Software as a Service offering, making CER the third Federal Government agency to sign up to Fujitsu’s industry cloud for government, built on Vault Protected Cloud.

The new agreement is in addition to CER’s existing managed services contract with Fujitsu.

CER is a non-corporate Commonwealth entity, operating as a part of the Department of the Environment and Energy, and responsible for administering legislation to reduce carbon emissions and increase the use of clean energy in Australia.

The Protected Cloud portfolio, an element of Fujitsu’s multi-cloud, multi-partner approach to hybrid IT, is delivered in partnership with Australian Signals Directorate-certified cloud service provider Vault as an "industry cloud" for government and critical services; certified by ASD to protected level.

Mike Foster, chief executive, Fujitsu Australia and New Zealand, said, “The Protected Cloud continues to gain interest from Federal Government agencies as they continue to embrace digital transformation.

“With this solution from Fujitsu, government agencies now have more flexibility in their ability to implement the right solution in a trusted and secure environment.”

Steven Stolk, chief information officer, CER, said  “implementing ServiceNow IT Service Management will give us better visibility into the performance of CER’s IT services.

“The Fujitsu Protected Cloud environment provides the flexibility to take advantage of commercially-available platforms such as ServiceNow with the confidence that the specific security needs for government are met.”
