Kyndryl, the company formed by IBM's spinoff of its managed services business, has been granted Certified Strategic Service Provider status by the Federal Government's Digital Transformation Agency.
The Digital Transformation Agency, now vested with the responsibility for certifying cloud companies that can host government data, appears to be unwilling to state clearly whether any of the four firms given a tick on 7 October had outstanding compliance issues.
Any data collected by the ABC through the use of the Google Analytics 360 Suite for its iview service is stored in the US, according to the lone document released to a security researcher who sought details about how such data is used.
Despite all the brouhaha over the alleged threat posed by China, the Federal Government does not seem overly concerned when it comes to cloud hosting of its sensitive data. Else, how does one account for the fact that the Digital Transformation Agency has given Amazon Web Services, a company that has links to a Chinese-owned data centre, the green light for hosting government data?
Four cloud companies have achieved Strategic Hosting Provider certification under the Federal Government's Hosting Certification Framework. One of them, Sliced Tech, was acquired by global consultancy Deloitte on Thursday.
Payment provider Mastercard is seeking to become a trusted digital identity provider and, to this end, has applied for accreditation under the Australian Government's Trusted Digital Identity Framework.
COMPANY NEWS: Fastly, a global edge cloud platform provider, today announced it has been appointed to the cloud marketplace (CMP) managed by the Australian Government's Digital Transformation Agency (DTA), reducing barriers to working with government departments and agencies.
The defence industry lobby group, Australian Strategic Policy Institute — which styles itself as an independent, non-partisan think-tank — issued a report critical of on Canberra Data Centres domination of the local government market for a lobby group that was paid by three of CDC's competitors, a report in the Australian Financial Review says.
Australian cloud provider Vault has signed a partnership with Hewlett Packard Enterprise firm Aruba to improve its cloud security solutions for both public and private sector clients.
More than two million Australians have created digital identities through the government my.Gov portal in order to access digital services, a statement from two ministers says.
The Digital Transformation Agency's digital ID program has been described as insecure and unfit for purpose by security researchers who last year found vulnerabilities in the government's COVIDSafe app.
Undeterred by the failure of its COVIDSafe app, the Morrison Government has announced that it will update the software in what it claims is "a world-leading technology development".
It's beginning to look like the Federal Government should avoid anything to do with technology following the revelation on Thursday that $70 million of taxpayers' money was spent on the COVIDSafe app – and only 17 cases were detected through its use.
A total of 100,000 households will test out the infrastructure for next year's Australian census on Tuesday night, the Australian Bureau of Statistics says.
So now we know why the Digital Transformation Agency has not been able to meet many of its work targets: it has been busy developing a new style manual for the Australian Government.
Canberra-based secure cloud services provider Vault has welcomed the release of new guidelines for vendors to be assessed for their competence in delivering secure cloud services by either public or private sector entities.
New guidelines have been released by the Australian Cyber Security Centre and the Digital Transformation Agency to enable the adoption of secure cloud services across the public and private sector.
The Federal Government's Digital Transformation Agency is one unit in Canberra that really earns its name. It transforms itself completely within as short a period as 18 months, gaining an entirely new workforce.
After what seems an eternity, an Australian company, born and bred right here, has landed what always seemed to be impossible: a whole-of-government cloud deal with an Australian Government entity.
The head of an Australian cloud company says the new arrangement for awarding contracts for hosting of top-secret government data have advantages over the older one where there was a fixed list of companies certified by the Australian Signals Directorate who could cast their hat in the ring and tout for business.
