Canberra technology company Penten will provide secure wireless devices to the army to protect it from cyber threats under a $1.3 million contract, changing the way it shares classified information.
The federal government on Friday will announce the Australian Defence Force will adopt the 40-strong company’s AltoCrypt technology, USB sticks providing secure access to information over WiFi.
While access to classified information is limited to hard-wired computer systems, or paper files, Penten’s technology is expected to change this by improving the speed information is received and reducing cabling costs.
Defence Industry Minister Christopher Pyne said the technology could be rapidly deployed to individual computers, which would change the way classified information was shared, used and accessed.
“The development of these devices aims to increase agility, reduce complexity and enable better decisions by ADF commanders and their staff in a tactical environment,” he said.
“Initial trials will test how this technology could be used with our coalition partners, with a view to increasing the classification in the future.”
Penten, which has grown from four employees in three years, said its technology was helping the government move away from paper to electronic distribution and storage.
