ATO signs $20m deal with Macquarie Telecom Group

The Australian Taxation Office’s (ATO) cybersecurity is set to get a boost under a new agreement with Macquarie Telecom Group

The deal — worth around $20 million — will see Macquarie Telecom Group provide a Secure Internet Gateway (SIG) to manage the connection between the ATO’s IT environments and the internet, as well as cybersecurity services over an initial three-year period, according to the Group. 

From 2020, the ATO will receive services leveraging Macquarie’s Australian 24/7 Security Operations Centre (SOC), sovereign data centres and ASD-certified cloud computing platforms, the Group said.

Macquarie intends to upgrade its whole-of-government SIG to support this deal and introduce the latest cybersecurity technology for its government clients, the Group concluded.
