CER to use Fujitsu Protected Cloud service

Australia’s Clean Energy Regulator has contracted Fujitsu to provide a managed protected cloud environment to help the agency pursue a digital transformation.

CER has become the third government agency to adopt the Fujitsu Protected Cloud software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution, based on the ServiceNow platform.

Fujitsu Protected Cloud is a fully managed solution delivered in partnership with Vault, an Australian Signals Directorate certified cloud service provider operating a secure hyperscale government community cloud.

Fujitsu’s ServiceNow offering complies with the Information Security Manual controls for a protected environment, and has been iRAP assessed to meet the requirements of a protected environment.

Fujitsu said it is the first vendor to provide SaaS protected-level offerings to the federal government.

“Implementing ServiceNow IT Service Management will give us better visibility into the performance of CER’s IT services,” CER CIO Steven Stolk said.

“The Fujitsu Protected Cloud environment provides the flexibility to take advantage of commercially available platforms such as ServiceNow with the confidence that the specific security needs for government are met.”

He said partnering with Vault allows customers to select between public and private cloud environments based on their needs.

CER is a unit of the Department of the Environment and Energy, tasked with administering legislation to reduce carbon emissions and increase the use of clean energy in Australia.
