The directors of Australia’s world-leading data protection company, Senetas Corporation Limited (ASX:SEN), today announced that the company has signed a partnership agreement with Evidence Technology who will use Senetas encryptors to provide defence-grade security on its video conferencing solutions.
Evidence Technology is a leading provider of audio visual, video conferencing and digital media management tools in Australia and New Zealand to organisations that deal with confidential data including courts, police, law firms, hospitals, government agencies and schools.
Under the partnership, Senetas will provide tamper-proof encryption to Evidence Technology’s video conferencing solutions that operate over open, standard IP networks to offer the firm’s clients the highest level of security for data in motion.
As part of the partnership with Senetas, Evidence Technology has attained Defence Recognised Supplier status under the Australian Government’s Defence Recognised Supplier Scheme.
Evidence Technology CEO Peter Carter said: “We have been working heavily with very low latency and personal telepresence systems for government and enterprise. What made Senetas encryption technology particularly attractive is that it offers the highest level of data security without reducing the performance of our high-definition conferencing solutions.”
Senetas CEO, John DuBois said “Evidence Technology is widely regarded as a leader in the provision of audio visual and video conferencing solutions for specialised, high-security government and enterprise application in Australia and New Zealand.”
“The solutions and professional services Evidence Technology provides to our justice, legal and law enforcement sector in particular are considered world-leading. The use of our internationally certified encryption hardware to ensure that information essential to the working of justice and our courts cannot be tampered with is an important vertical market application.
“While encryption is often deployed to prevent the extraction of information from networks, it also prevents the injection of data,” Mr DuBois said.
He said that the Evidence Technology solution would be “of great interest to existing Government and commercial Senetas clients” in Australia and abroad.
“Senetas does not reveal publicly details of where we have encryptors installed, but the company has long-established relationships with police, law enforcement, border control, corporate regulators and other agencies in Australia, Asia and Europe and this new partnership with Evidence Technology will potentially be of great interest to this sector,” he said.
Senetas Corporation Limited (ASX Code: SEN) is an Australian ASX-listed public company and is the world’s leading developer and supplier of high speed network encryption hardware products.
