archTIS nabs A-G's dept as first client for beta sharing platform


ASX-listed Canberra-based cyber security firm archTIS has struck a deal with the Federal Attorney-General's Department, with the latter to be the first beta client of its cloud-based Kojensi Gov platform.

A statement from archTIS (ASX AR9) said the deal would improve the capacity of the department to share information and collaborate securely.

The company claims to have a unique security model for Kojensi Gov that enables sharing and collaboration, while meeting regulatory, security and sovereign compliance requirements for protected classified information.

archTIS managing director Daniel Lai said: “We have been overwhelmed by the response we have received from government agencies and the interest in Kojensi Gov.

"I am delighted that the Attorney-General’s Department has agreed to be a beta client and am looking forward to working closely with them.

"We are in discussions with other organisations interested in participating in the beta program and expect there will be further announcements in the near future”.

Lai told iTWire that the platform could be based for both inter-agency and intra-agency collaboration. He said once one was on a network connected to the platform, one could log in from a Web front-end and start working.

The deal will take effect from December and the company is in the process of talking to others, both in the public and private space.

Kojensi is claimed to have applications that will serve needs in both public and private spheres, and archTIS says it will help to establish an Australasian cyber security ecosystem.

Lai said that the name of the platform was a pun on cogency, as that word was not available as a domain name. So they chose Kojensi, he said.

Initially, the platform was called Sharespace, but again that domain was not available, he added.

archTIS listed on the ASX last month and expects Kojensi Gov to have its full commercial launch in the first quarter of 2019.
