UXC Managing Director Cris Nicolli said the partnership brings together the certified high-speed, defence-grade encryptors of Senetas with UXC’s end-to-end ICT offering of advisory, consulting, and network infrastructure services, making the solution available to UXC’s Australian government and commercial customer base.
Nicolli said Senetas (ASX: SEN) – which specialises in protecting data as it is transmitted across networks whilst retaining maximum network performance - is the world’s only triple-certified encryptors of (Common Criteria (Australia and international), FIPS (US) and CAPS (UK) certification for government and defence use.
“It is often assumed that data networks are inherently safe, but as the list of organisations affected by cyber-attacks continues to grow, it is clear that no company is immune. Data networks are vulnerable to security breaches. To be protected from a data network breach, cyber-attack or innocent routing error, organisations need strong encryption products,” Nicolli said.
Senetas CEO, Andrew Wilson, said, “With the number of data network breaches on the rise, we’re encouraging both the business and government sectors to understand that the true cost of data breaches extends beyond regulatory penalties, and often includes financial losses, the damage to reputation and trust, and loss of intellectual property. Businesses must be proactive in protecting their customers’ data and aware that they will be held accountable when that data is compromised.
“Maximising our local R&D is helping us meet the rapidly growing needs of new customers around the world and making encryption more cost effective and easier to implement than ever before. Our partnership with UXC will help provide businesses with a data security solution that will drive results in a secure, sophisticated environment.”
