Victoria launches protected-level cloud solution

The Victorian Government’s ICT shared service provider Cenitex has developed the state’s first cloud-based solution capable of delivering Protected level certification.

The VicCloud Protect solution has been developed in conjunction with Microsoft Australia and technology partner oobe, and incorporates oobe’s Perimeta for Azure secure connectivity platform.

The solution meets the guidelines established by both the Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC) and the Victorian Protection Data Security Framework. It contains security controls for business and application data hosting.

VicCloud Protect has been designed to allow government customers to quickly deploy new workloads to Azure while adhering to corporate and government policies, and ensuring integration with existing and future IT infrastructure.

“VicCloud Protect offers cost-effective additional security to existing workloads, offering flexibility without compromising security and promoting service innovation while protecting data integrity,” Cenitex Service Delivery Director Nigel Cadywould said.

“It is an important part of our ongoing commitment to a secure, efficient and modern digital government for Victoria.”

Microsoft was the first international cloud provider to be awarded Protected level certification in Australia in 2018, which has resulted in a spike in adoption of Azure cloud services among Australian government organisations.
