Globally, digital transformation has created new ways to work smarter and faster — anytime, anywhere. However, for Defence and industry, collaborating on and sharing sensitive or classified information introduces new risks and problems that must be solved.

Security that addresses insider threats and external threats is paramount for government, defence industry, research, intelligence and supply chain collaboration.

Based in Canberra, archTIS (ASX:AR9) offers products specifically designed for secure collaboration of sensitive and classified information.

CEO and Managing Director Daniel Lai explains why the archTIS approach is unique.

“Users typically gain access to information according to their roles and group membership. We take a different approach, controlling access and protection using data and user attributes such as security clearance level, geographical location or organisation name,” Lai said.

“For example, we can assess the device type used, router, firewall, database and server to ascertain access and sharing rights,” he said. “By analysing all of these attributes, we guarantee trusted pathways for access and collaboration of digital assets.”

archTIS’ data-centric, attribute-based access control (ABAC) methodology affords the highest levels of protection.

“Our mission is to safeguard the world's most sensitive information by providing secure, policy-controlled access to data. Clients rely on us to ensure the terms and conditions placed on who can access, edit and share their information are never breached,” said Lai.

Established in 2006, archTIS has extensive experience providing multi-level, cross-domain information security solutions to government and defence.

“We are excited to be selected as one of the inaugural companies in Raytheon Australia’s Capability Plus program, to help deepen and expand our partnership with Raytheon Australia to tackle defence industry information security challenges globally,”Lai said.
