Canberra launches new Defence-certified highly-secure IT lifecycle centre
On March 13, a highly-secure IT lifecycle services centre was officially opened in Canberra to ensure that sensitive assets and data are handled safely.
The Canberra IT Commissioning Centre (ITCC) was specifically designed by the Greenbox Systems for the Australian Federal Government and Defence sectors.
The new site was opened by Australian Minister for Defence Industry, the Hon. Christopher Pyne MP.
“This centre provides Defence and Federal Government with secure large-scale IT lifecycle services backed by Defence standards, the International Standards Organisation and Responsible Recycling accreditations,” Minister Pyne said.
The Canberra ITCC will provide the Australian Federal Government and Defence agencies with secure and large-scale IT services backed by Defence standards, ISO and R2 accreditations. Projects conducted through the facility will be managed by a team of 25 security-cleared specialists.
In addition to its security certifications, the 1500-square-metre commissioning centre is equipped to process large volumes of devices. Not only can it store more than 1,500 pallets of equipment, but it also has the capacity to conduct more than 2,000 Standard Operating Environment (SE) loads daily with 800 machines operating simultaneously.
The new facility is the largest IT lifecycle service centre in Australia, allowing it to deliver to the needs of large and security-sensitive organisations.
Chief Executive Officer at Greenbox Shane Mulholland said the commissioning centre was designed to fulfil the need for specialist resources in the Canberra region, addressing the demand for scalable, security-focused lifecycle services from its target markets.
“Our emphasis on the secure management of sensitive IT assets from imaging to disposal of extremely-sensitive data has generated significant interest for our services in Canberra,” said Mulholland.
“We previously delivered these services via our Sydney facility, however the proliferation in both devices and data, as well as an increase in market demand made it clear we needed a dedicated site to service the nation’s capital,” Mulholland added.
The Canberra site is located at 184 Gilmore Road, Queanbeyan West.
