Home Government Tech Policy Greenbox launches govt, defence-certified IT services Canberra centre

Greenbox Systems has formally launched its new Canberra IT Commissioning Centre, a highly-secure IT lifecycle services facility specifically designed for the federal government and defence sectors.

Located at Queanbeyan West, the new centre was opened on Wednesday by the Minister for Defence Industry, Christopher Pyne.

The Canberra ITCC — expanding Greenbox’s existing footprint in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne — will provide federal government and defence agencies with secure and large-scale IT services backed by defence standards, ISO and R2 accreditations.

Projects conducted through the facility will be managed by a team of 25 security-cleared specialists.

Shane Mulholland, chief executive at Greenbox, said the commissioning centre was designed to fulfil the need for specialist resources in the Canberra region, addressing the demand for scalable, security-focused lifecycle services from its target markets.

“Our emphasis on the secure management of sensitive IT assets from imaging to disposal of extremely-sensitive data has generated significant interest for our services in Canberra,” said Mulholland.

“We previously delivered these services via our Sydney facility. However, the proliferation in both devices and data, as well as an increase in market demand made it clear we needed a dedicated site to service the nation’s capital.”

Mullholland said that, in addition to its security certifications, the 1500-square-metre commissioning centre was equipped to process large volumes of devices.

He said not only could it store more than 1500 pallets of equipment, but it gave Greenbox the capacity to conduct more than 2000 standard operating environment loads daily, with 800 machines operating simultaneously.

“The new facility is the largest IT lifecycle service centre in Australia, allowing us to deliver to the needs of large and security-sensitive organisations,” said Mulholland.

“For Canberra clients, Greenbox reduces the costs and risks around the IT chain of custody. Having a local facility means that we are highly responsive and can manage all logistics and transportation in-house to the highest security standards.”
