Australia’s Academic and Research Network (AARNet) and computer emergency response team AusCERT have teamed up to provide the Research and Education (R&E) sector with an extended range of IT and network security support services.

Under the deal, AARNet and AusCERT members in the R&E sector will now have direct access to a suite of networking, consulting and cyber security services.

James Sankar, AARNet’s Director Enterprise Services, says the two organisations will collaborate to support enquiries and provide testing and remediation services, helping CIOs and other IT professionals manage the complexities of IT security in today’s rapidly changing technology environment.

“This new partnership is about supporting universities with a wider range of cost-efficient options for securing campus IT environments. This is just the beginning – our goal is to enable the innovation pipeline for research and education by continuously developing solutions for securing access to cloud and managed services.”

Sankar said the AARNet Enterprise Services team will bring professional services to the partnership, “drawing on the latest security knowledge and best practice from the IT security community across multiple industries in Australia and overseas”.

AusCERT’s General Manager Thomas King said the new partnership with AARNet builds on the “high quality threat intelligence and reporting AusCERT has been providing to members since 1993”.

“Under the new partnership with AARNet, AusCERT will provide unique and cost effective cyber security services to the higher education sector within Australia and will build upon this base to strengthen the nation’s research and education network.”
