Cynterra wins DTA contract
Cybersecurity and data analysis firm Cynterra has won a contract to provide the Australian Government’s Digital Transformation Agency (DTA) with a new generation Secure Internet Gateway (SIG).
Drago Gvozdanovic, CEO of Cynterra, said the DTA’s recognition of the benefits of Cynterra’s secure cloud platform is rewarding and fuels the company’s vision to provide cloud gateway solutions.
“Traditionally, government agencies have relied on big-iron consolidated gateways which must continually grow in capacity to handle each and every varying requirement. This is expensive, slow and creates more opportunities for cyber attacks,” Gvozdanovic said.
“Cynterra’s secure cloud platform allows an architecture that tailors security to a specific application and its requirements. This approach reduces the attack surface of the organisation meaning if one environment is compromised, the others continue to operate independently.”
The other major benefit over traditional gateways is Cynterra’s ability to configure client environments in less than one day, with all environments able to be assessed and interrogated through a single portal with a customised dashboard presenting information sources through a single touch.
“The DTA is focused on improving people’s experience of government services and we are continually looking at ways to help our government agencies achieve best practice by adopting services that are simple, clear and fast,” Gvozdanovic said.
While the advantages of cloud SIGs over traditional ‘big iron’ solutions are many, the ones set to have the most beneficial impact for businesses include the enormous cost savings, rapid deployment and a much-improved risk profile.
