NSW adds Vault Cloud to Silverwater data centre

Canberra-based secure cloud vendor Vault Cloud has switched on high security equipment in the NSW Government's Silverwater GovDC data centre.

The deployment provides fast layer 2 connectivity directly into Vault Cloud, with the secure cloud service now available through the NSW Government ProcurePoint panel.

Vault Cloud is an Australian Signals Directorate certified cloud service designed to the military-grade TOP SECRET controls of the Information Security Manual. The company's Government Cloud was the first to obtain this highest available security certification.

The company uses hardware from Intel and runs on the OpenStack open source platform. The cloud is exclusively administered by engineers with federal government clearances, and only government tenancies are allowed to operate on the Government Cloud.

Each customer is also protected by an advanced firewall and gateway, the Secure Internet Gateway (SIG), which is also available as a standalone product.

The SIG is designed to monitor network threats, block malicious sites and scan incoming and outgoing files for risk of infection.

All data is kept onshore and subject only to Australian jurisdiction.
