A secure Internet environment is vital for any government organization, especially those charged with protecting national interests. So when the Australian Department of Defense needed to upgrade its communications capabilities, it chose a secure, high-speed networking solution from Verizon. ??

The Department of Defense is responsible for defending Australia and its national interests, and it combines the Australian Army, Navy and Air Force with a public service function.

Under a five-year agreement worth more than $52 million, Verizon will provide the department with a managed, dual-Internet gateway solution and professional services support to link the department’s 110,000 employees, other government agencies, industry partners and the general public.

CIO Greg Farr of the department’s Chief Information Officer Group notes, “The Department of Defense manages one of the largest information and communications technology networks in Australia. It is our job to ensure that this network offers a dependable, secure and integrated information environment to support Defense military and business operations. It is imperative that we provide simple and secure access to information for our internal and external stakeholders.” ??

To further reinforce system availability and security, each gateway will be housed in a separate, secure, geographically diverse Verizon data center location. ?
