Kaspersky secures Department of Prime Minister & Cabinet Featured

By

Devices used by the Department of Prime Minister & Cabinet are now secured by Kaspersky, under a new contract with the security firm.

Kaspersky has announced is delivering its security offerings to protect devices used by the department’s staff across Australia.

The PM&C has around 2,500 employees a cross the country.

Kaspersky says the announcement reflects the “strong confidence” placed in its security solutions, products, and services by a broad cross section of the Australian market.

“Kaspersky Lab is proud to be protecting the Department of the Prime Minister & Cabinet, including its almost 2,500 employees across Australia,” said Kaspersky Lab’s Australia & NZ managing director, Andrew Mamonitis.

“It is testament to the strong confidence key players on a national level have in our robust portfolio of security offerings.”

Mamonitis said that since opening its offices in Australia 6 years ago, Kaspersky has been directly engaging with the local information security and business communities across Australia.

As an example of that engagement, Mamonitis cites Kaspersky’s Chairman and CEO, Eugene Kaspersky, visiting Australia earlier this month for the AusCERT information security conference, as well as for industry and business events across the country.  Eugene Kaspersky spoke at a lunch in Sydney attended by iTWire when he was in Australia – to read Ray Shaw’s report on Kaspersky's luncheon address click here.

Mamonitis says Kaspersky Lab's Australia strategy has been geared towards a collaboration with government agencies and delivering to Australia its global cyberthreat intelligence services, including the provision of policy and technological proposals to deal with the cyberthreats to Australia.

“We are and remain at the forefront of the IT security space. Our extensive role in working with international agencies both globally and across our region means we are able to effectively respond to the impact of the global cybersecurity landscape on Australia.

"Kaspersky Lab’s local strategy culminated in today’s announcement of securing the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet across Australia."

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.
