ASX-listed Canberra-based cyber security firm archTIS has acquired the Massachusetts-based global information protection business Nucleus Cyber for up to $9.75 million in shares, the company said in an announcement to the ASX on Thursday.

archTIS said the acquisition would create a global, geographically diverse company that would support its strategy of being the top provider of enforced access control platforms for securing and sharing digital information.

archTIS' cloud-based data-sharing platform Kojensi Gov is claimed to have a unique security model that enables government agencies to share information and collaborate while meeting regulatory, security and sovereign compliance requirements for classified information up to the level required for top-secret government information.

The platform can be used for both inter-agency and intra-agency collaboration and once one is on a network connected to the platform, one can log in from a Web front-end and start working.

The company is eager to get on the front foot as far as earning revenue goes, having suffered a loss of $3.72 million for the 2019-20 financial year.

Regarding the Nucleus Cyber buy, archTIS said this would leverage its core capabilities and expand its offering into the Microsoft product suite.

This would open new markets through Nucleus Cyber's Microsoft co-sell agreement through field sales and channel resellers and archTIS said it expected significant growth from this revenue stream in 2021.

archTIS chief executive Daniel Lai said: “This acquisition is transformative for archTIS. The acquisition of Nucleus Cyber expands our offering into the Microsoft business product suite and opens up new global sales and distribution channels and provides significant new revenue streams to the business.

"This forms a critical component of our global strategy of being the world’s premier provider of policy enforced access control platforms for securing and sharing digital information.

"We have known and worked with the Nucleus Cyber team for an extended period, and we look forward to welcoming them to the archTIS business and continuing to facilitate secure collaboration and information protection for our clients.”

Nucleus Cyber chief executive Kurt Mueffelmann said: “We are excited to be joining archTIS. Nucleus Cyber and archTIS teams share a long relationship and common technology approach of using Attribute-Based Access Control in securing sensitive information.

"Secure information sharing across enterprise and government is an ongoing problem, exacerbated by the exponential increase in remote work and the use of Microsoft’s collaboration tools that have been fuelled by the pandemic.

"The combination of archTIS and Nucleus Cyber technologies and talent ensures we are at the forefront of providing market leading information security solutions. I look forward to joining archTIS as its chief operating officer and continuing to accelerate our growth.”

The acquisition is expected to close before the end of the year.

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
