Vault Cloud Partners with iseek in Queensland’s First Protected Cloud Service


Vault Cloud has partnered with iseek to deliver Queensland’s first locally hosted PROTECTED Cloud service.

The solution will provide access to Vault Cloud’s transparent privacy and security cloud solutions for organisations across Queensland, bolstering the security of the state’s digital frontline.

The introduction of the Vault Cloud’s secure, sovereign cloud services through iseek comes as government agencies and other enterprises with highly sensitive data look to expand critical digital infrastructure. This is in response to demand driven by the COVID-19 pandemic. They include defence, aviation, banking, mining, healthcare, aged care and various other sectors.

“The future of PROTECTED Cloud will be growth,” said Rupert Taylor-Price, CEO, Vault Cloud. “The amount of sensitive data that will be moved to the cloud over the next five years is much higher than it has been in the past. Today, PROTECTED Cloud is used heavily in government. But, as more cyber security events occur, other sectors and industries are starting to look for secure cloud solutions as well.”

“As one of the first cloud platforms to be certified by the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD) to manage and store classified data, Vault Cloud has a strong reputation as a specialist in high security, sovereign data services. That focus is critical to our growth in Queensland as well as our expanding presence in New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory.”

“iseek has a 23 year-long history as a Queensland data centre and cloud services innovator,” added Taylor-Price. “We’re excited to marry our innovative, secure technology with their smarts to offer something new to security-conscious organisations in Queensland.”

The iseek-Vault partnership’s PROTECTED Cloud will be IRAP-assessed. Additionally, it will take into account the relevant security controls of the Australian Government Information Security Manual (ISM). This will range from the thickness and sturdiness of doors to how data is managed and encrypted on disks.
