A statement from Aruba said Vault would use its Network Policy Manager-as-a-service offering to help its clients:
- have simpler, more secure access to corporate networks;
- easily identify devices on the network, enforce accurate policies and protect resources; and
- be able to access consistent, secure wireless networks on the go.
Among Vault's clients are the Digital Transformation Agency, Services Australia, the Department of Jobs and Small Business, the Department of Health, the Department of Social Services and Department of Defence.
Last July, Vault became the first Australian cloud firm to secure a whole-of-government deal, signing up the NSW Government to provide procurement and management of cloud services.
"The partnership will not only see the ClearPass experience further streamline user network connectivity across the public sector to those who need it most, but it will fundamentally transform how government personnel work and operate across the state.
"For example, over 150,000 clinical and non-clinical staff have needed to access consistent, secure wireless when moving between health sites over the last year – a change which has been instrumental in effectively managing the COVID-19 pandemic."
Vault general manager Linton Burling commented: "We are dedicated to continually enhancing our cloud solutions in response to a rapidly evolving and sophisticated IT landscape.
"In Australia, the critical services industry can be called upon in a moment's notice for any number of reasons.
"This new infrastructure is designed and tested to support these emergency service workers and government agencies to do their job wherever it may be, in their quest to help keep Australians safe.
"It will also allow full mobility for government staff in participating agencies the ability to work productively from any government office in NSW."
