archTIS Limited (ASX:AR9) reports that the Australian Department of Defence has renewed its annual software subscription license for the NC Protect product through archTIS’ newly acquired subsidiary Nucleus Cyber.
The NC Protect solution leverages existing technology investments to provide a simpler, faster and cheaper solution to tailor information protection for file sharing, messaging and chat across an organisation’s collaboration tools, such as Microsoft Office 365—SharePoint, Teams, OneDrive, Exchange and Yammer, Dropbox, Nutanix Files and Windows file shares.
The annual contract value for the NC Protect subscription renewal is $148,866.
This is archTIS’ second software license contract win with the Department of Defence this financial year for securing their information sharing capabilities. It follows archTIS $4.2 million contract win in September to lead risk reduction activities relating to cross-domain classified information sharing, which included $750,000 annual licenses for Kojensi (archTIS’ secure information sharing platform for classified information).
archTIS Global COO and US President, Kurt Mueffelmann, said these wins follow the recent announcement by the Australian Government that it will spend $15 billion on Defence information management and cyber security over the next 10 years.
I am delighted that the Australian Department of Defence has renewed its subscription of NC Protect to safeguard sensitive information,” Mr Mueffelmann said.
“It’s great to provide immediate validation of our products and shared sales team capabilities so soon after the acquisition. Defence is a joint customer of Nucleus Cyber and archTIS. archTIS and Nucleus Cyber attributed based access control (ABAC) technology platforms and shared customer base validate this modern approach to protecting highly sensitive data across the world’s most classified networks. We look forward to the continued expansion of the Defence relationship.”
archTIS Managing Director, Daniel Lai, said this renewal demonstrates the strategic value of the Nucleus Cyber acquisition.
“It provides our customers with a range of policy enforcement products to secure and share their information assets. The merger now means archTIS can provide award-winning products to secure our clients Microsoft business applications.
“The Defence renewal validates the quality and uniqueness of NC Protect. This renewal and our recent Kojensi sales strongly position archTIS as a key provider of information security products to the Australian Department of Defence. This is an exciting time for archTIS as it continues to successfully execute our strategy to become the global leader of policy enforcement in the protection and sharing of sensitive and classified information.”
