Kapish, owned by Citadel, has been awarded a three-year contract to provide a secure, cloud-based information management system for the national science agency CSIRO.
As part of the project, CSIRO will use the Kapish Content Manager Cloud platform to undertake important research projects with maximum collaboration and minimum downtime, allowing multiple research centers to work together securely on large geographical areas.
Sensitive CSIRO information now enjoys the highest level of protection available thanks to Kapish’s dual success in ISO 27001 certification and protected level assessment by the Information Security Approved Assessor Program (IRAP). ).
According to Kapish, it is the first publicly available platform to achieve such a high level of security recognition, successfully handling more than 850 processes and procedures to achieve the IRAP rating.
“The real benefit for CSIRO of bringing Kapish Content Manager Cloud online is that they can outsource information management and secure data storage as a fully managed service that securely connects their global workforce and scales continuously to respond to increasingly sophisticated cyber threats,” Kapish Chief Development Officer Stewart Hollingdrake said.
Citadel CEO and Managing Director Mark McConnell added that this landmark deal with such a large and influential client stands out because it is the national agency tasked with setting the government’s ICT agenda.
“Kapish Content Manager Cloud remains the only PROTECTED-level IRAP-rated platform available to the public nationwide, making ISO 27001 certification and IRAP rating a testament to our hard work and of our commitment to bringing an unparalleled layer of security to our valued customers, including CSIRO,” he said.
Citadel Group bought software and services company Kapish for around $17.5 million in 2016.
