CSIRO deploys Citadel IX in a three-year contract deal


Secure and enterprise information management The Citadel Group has signed a three-year agreement with the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) to deliver secure and cloud-based information management for the agency.

CSIRO says information security is a mission-critical priority as ransomware attacks are on the rise due to COVID-19. Cyber intrusions on government systems, critical infrastructure, and other information networks pose a threat to national interests. Thus, cybersecurity is essential to an advanced, safe, and secure Australia.

The next step for CSIRO was to collaborate with both internal and external stakeholders in the cloud.

The agency has deployed The Citadel Group’s Citadel IX to manage its data.

“The real benefit with Citadel IX is CSIRO can outsource the secure data storage and pro-active monitoring of our information management solution as a fully managed service that it will continuously evolve to respond to the increasingly sophisticated cyber threats,” comments The Citadel Group public sector lead Stewart Hollingdrake.

Citadel IX will enable top scientists to continue their research projects with minimal to zero downtime and maximum collaboration.

The Citadel Group CEO and managing director Mark McConnell notes that the agreement is an “outstanding endorsement of the superior quality of the Citadel IX platform.”

“While it is true that all of our clients expect (and receive) the highest standards of secure information management, this flagship agreement stands apart because it is with the national agency responsible for setting the government’s ICT agenda,” McConnell adds.

The deal follows The Citadel Group’s recent achievements of ISO 27001 certification and assessment at the protected level by Information Security Registered Assessor Program (IRAP).

The Citadel Group addressed no less than 850 processes and procedures to achieve the IRAP assessment.

Citadel IX is an electronic document and records management system (eDRMS) Software as a Service (SaaS) platform that helps organisations securely manage all records, regulatory data, and content in the cloud.

Hybrid cloud promises to bring together the best of both worlds enabling businesses to combine the scalability and cost-effectiveness of the cloud with the performance and control that you can get from your on-premise infrastructure.

Reducing WAN latency is one of the biggest issues with hybrid cloud performance. Taking advantage of compression and data deduplication can reduce your network latency.

Research firm, Markets and Markets, predicted that the hybrid cloud market size is expected to grow from US$38.27 billion in 2017 to US$97.64 billion by 2023.

Colocation facilities provide many of the benefits of having your servers in the cloud while still maintaining physical control of your systems.

Cloud adjacency provided by colocation facilities can enable you to leverage their low latency high bandwidth connections to the cloud as well as providing a solid connection back to your on-premises corporate network.

Download this white paper to find out what you need to know about enabling the hybrid cloud in your organisation.
