ASX-listed Canberra-based cyber security firm archTIS has signed a $4.2 million deal with the Department of Defence to carry out risk reduction for multinational information sharing and cross-domain services.

The deal includes three licences for archTIS' data-sharing platform Kojensi for a total of 600 users and the services needed to set up and run the platform.

Development, building and accreditation activities will take place over the next 12 months to provide the Defence Department with an information sharing architecture pattern for cross and multi-domain services between different warfighter and Allied partners.

This is archTIS' biggest contract to date, echoing what chief executive Daniel Lai told iTWire in an informal chat recently, that while the last two years had resulted in losses due to the work of building a high-class system, things were now set for clients to roll in.

It is the first major contract for the Federal Government as part of the $15 billion investment in cyber and information warfare capabilities. It will begin immediately and is expected to last for approximately 9 to 12 months, unless extended.

Lai said in a note to the ASX on Thursday: "I am delighted that archTIS has been selected lead this risk reduction activity. The need to share, control and trust information in the warfighter domain, between forces and with allies remains a critical requirement and archTIS is well positioned to deliver on this.”

archTIS claims Kojensi Gov has a unique security model that enables government agencies to share information and collaborate whilst meeting regulatory, security and sovereign compliance requirements for classified information up to the Protected level. That means government information of the highest classification.

The platform can be based 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.
