ASD-certified Protected cloud provider Vault has been chosen to house all data from Canberra Institute of Technology and cyber-security training firm Fifth Domain's virtual classroom, Penteract.

A statement from Vault said Penteract was a cloud-based security operations centre which allowed students to gain national-level qualifications by working through real-life security scenarios.

Penteract has been funded by the Federal Government's AustCyber Project Fund, and is being administered by the ANU and Nova Systems as well, and uses a training facility at the Canberra Institutes Reid facility.

This facility can house 40 students and the aim of the program is to fill the demand for skilled cyber security workers in Australia.

“By being involved in this project through Fifth Domain and CIT, it allows Vault to be part of the solution of addressing the critical issue of upskilling the next generation of cyber security experts in Australia,” said Tony Marceddo, general manager of Vault.

“It’s important that these skills don’t go overlooked and we are excited to be able to provide a secure and sovereign environment for these students to build their security skill set for their future.”

Matthew Wilcox, the founder and director of Fifth Domain, said, “When we set out on this project to develop a new cyber security training facility with CIT, we had three requirements. We needed a cloud provider that ran on OpenStack, was able to securely store data within the sovereignty of Australia and was based in Canberra. Vault’s cloud ticks all of those boxes.”

The project is estimated to cost $1.1 million, with $547,000 coming from AustCyber’s Project Fund.

Vault said the cloud-based platform would allow CIT to not only train people in the classroom but also remotely so more people could be reached. Additionally, the program can be used by TAFEs around the country to share content.

“Selecting Vault as a partner for the new cyber-security training project at CIT was an easy decision based on their credentials,” said Jayne Miller, director of Business Development at CIT.

“Not only do we have a ASD-certified Protected cloud provider storing this valuable training data, but we are able to have three Australian organisations all based in Canberra working together. With Vault providing the cloud environment, we can rest assured that we will have great support from the local team on the ground."
