Centrify, the leader in securing hybrid enterprises through the power of identity services, today shares seven steps for businesses that want to secure their data assets from cyber stalkers.
With Australia implementing mandatory data breach reporting from February next year, Centrify warns that companies need to increase their Identity and Access Management (IAM) maturity to effectively reduce the risk of a data breach and the resulting damage when it is reported.
Centrify Senior Director APAC Sales Niall King said a reported data breach could damage shareholder value and customer loyalty. “A breach can wipe out company value, as we saw it with Yahoo!’s acquisition price devaluation of $350 million after its data breaches were announced,” he said.
A Queensland family has chosen ZCell batteries to guarantee that their new home has electricity without any power bills in the largest Australian residential energy storage system to date for Redflow Limited.
The Bates family’s six-battery, 60 kilowatt-hour (kWh) system ensures complete off-grid operation for their recently built home on a cattle and grain property, about 2.7 kilometres from mains power.
When Scott and Breeann Bates built their new house near Wallumbilla, they chose a ZCell-based energy storage system to give them uninterrupted power, grid-independence and no power bills rather than pay many thousands of dollars per kilometre to connect mains power to the house.
ZCell batteries are produced by Redflow Limited, the ASX-listed company that has developed the world’s smallest zinc-bromine flow battery. The system was installed by Off-Grid Energy Australia.
Breeann Bates said the ZCell-based system was living up to their expectations. “We are really impressed with it,” she said. “Scott wanted to be able to do everything on batteries that we could do on mains power and not compromise our way of living. It’s cold in the morning, so we’re running the heaters to keep our three kids warm, and we keep them on until the day warms up.
Australian battery company Redflow Limited has started installing battery production equipment at its new factory in Thailand, putting it on track to commence initial operation by the end of this year.
Through its Thai subsidiary, Redflow has signed a three-year lease on the 1500-square-metre building at the Hemaraj Chonburi Industrial Estate, part of the IEAT free trade zone, 110km southeast of Bangkok and 25km from the Laem Chabang deep sea container port.
Redflow CEO Richard Aird recently visited Thailand to finalise the lease agreement with David Nadone, Chief Executive Officer and President of Hemaraj Land and Development Public Co Ltd, a subsidiary of WHA Corporation.
