Centrify, the leader in securing enterprise identities against cyberthreats, has announced new hybrid cloud capabilities to speed and secure adoption of Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS).
Centrify’s solution, including its new Identity Broker, uniquely provides identity freedom, deployment freedom and the most comprehensive capabilities for securing privileged access to infrastructure and apps in a hybrid IT environment.
IaaS platforms such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) provide an excellent layer of foundational security, but the shared responsibility model is clear: Businesses are still responsible for the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of their data in the cloud.
Organisations that store sensitive data in the cloud - 93 per cent according to a recent Forrester survey - need a consistent security model across on-premises and IaaS to reduce the risk of data breach.1 Yet Gartner predicts that 95 per cent of IaaS security failures will be the customer’s fault, with more than half of those attributed to inadequate management of identities, access and privileges.2
Centrify Senior Director APAC Sales Niall King, who is in Australia this week, said leveraging built-in IaaS security was a great start, but not a complete solution. “Centrify is the only vendor that comprehensively addresses identity for SaaS, IaaS and on-premises with a single architecture,” he said.
ZCell energy storage solution, including additional coverage in regional areas and the NT.Australian battery company Redflow Limited today announces seven more approved installers for its new
Redflow’s latest approved ZCell installers are SSE Systems in the ACT;Riverina Complete Solar in Griffith, NSW; Country Solar NT in the Northern Territory; Apex Communication Technologies and Sustainable Works, both in SA; Veida in Victoria; and Green Gateway in WA. Redflow now has a total of 12 installers offering services in every state and territory of Australia.
ASX-listed Redflow last month told shareholders at its Annual General Meeting that it had received strong demand for its ZCell residential battery, with orders from installers Australia-wide, including one for 48 ZCells, worth about $600,000 from Standard Solar in Melbourne. Through in-country business partners, Redflow has also seen multi-unit deployments of its ZBM2 commercial batteries at a factory in South Africa and a telecommunications tower in New Zealand.
Redflow CEO Simon Hackett said each approved installer had undertaken ZCell-specific training which extended their existing expertise and experience of installing energy storage systems.
When 1.7 million South Australians lost power in late September, the family of Redflow CEO Simon Hackett in suburban Adelaide learned of the state-wide blackout only by reading of it on social media.
As the electricity grid shut down to protect itself during a fierce storm, two Redflow batteries at the Hackett house continued to operate, providing it with electricity, without missing a beat.
At last week’s Redflow AGM, Mr Hackett said the two ZBM2 batteries had worked as intended. “They kept our lights on as the rest of the state was plunged into darkness,” he said.
