Cirrus Networks and network visibility provider Gigamon have teamed up to provide managed security services to governments and large enterprises in Australia.

After a six-month consultation period, the initial three-year partnership will target the government, mining, financial services and education sectors, focusing first on ACT.

Next is Victoria and Western Australia, then the rest of the country, with the entire deal set to bring Cirrus $ 4 million in revenue a year.

Cirrus said in a statement filed with the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) that the security offering, which is to be delivered through Gigamon’s Hawk Cloud Visibility and Analytics platform, can acquire, transform and process data from any source to optimize customer online security.

This, he claims, results in a cybersecurity service that is fast and cost effective.

“Softwares, [which can be] fully integrated with private or public cloud services, will also enable Cirrus data analysts to provide higher value-added customer services and advice, ”said the systems integrator.

Cirrus chief executive and CEO Chris McLaughlin said the partnership between the two companies is proof of their commitment to expanding their cybersecurity capabilities.

“Developing a long-term partnership with Gigamon will be of intrinsic value to Cirrus customers,” he said.

“We chose Gigamon because of its global market leadership and reputation for cybersecurity, combined with technology to reduce noise and ensure a more targeted response to online vulnerabilities.

“We look forward to working with the Gigamon team to develop our cybersecurity offering in Australia. ”

Kenneth Cartwright, A / NZ Channel Manager at Gigamon, added that Cirrus was the “perfect long-term partner” as it has the highest number of employees qualified as certified Gigamon technology vendors in Australia and in New Zealand.

“While Gigamon brings enhanced cyber visibility and security resilience to the partnership, Cirrus brings a proven track record and business relationship with government and private companies, in some of the most complex industry sectors, including financial services, healthcare, defense and the supply chain, ”he said.
