Under the contract, Cogito, specialising in digital security and system integration, will maintain the Identity and PKI for the Department of Defence for three years, with the option for a further two years.
Richard Brown, CEO, Cogito Group, said the company, through the use of a Public Key Infrastructure (PKI), will support CDMC in providing greater security and assurance of individuals and resources accessing Defence information and sites, and is “trusted within the ADO and allied environments.”
“Cogito Group is honoured to be selected to continue to provide 2nd and 3rd level PKI and identity management support services for Defence,” Brown said.
Cogito Group will also continue to offer architectural and design consulting services to the CIO Group and projects implementing hard tokens or supporting infrastructure such as digital certificates as well as cloud security products.
“Cogito Group is a very proud Australian owned and Canberra-based digital security company. We’re digital security experts and system integrators. We specialise in smart cards, card management systems, public key infrastructure – basically ‘enabling technology’ that keeps your physical, logical and cloud based data and infrastructure safe.
“We’ve developed a very good reputation due to our product and technology expertise. It’s great to see a local Canberra based business that invests in its people winning against large international players,” Brown said.
