Vault Systems

Vault Systems delivers a true Government cloud platform that incorporates Australian security standards to the highest levels, while providing extensive scalability, flexibility and remaining cost effective.

Vault's cloud platform natively embeds security controls to meet the requirements of Government. Vault is only one of two companies globally to achieve ASD Protected certification. Vault was recently awarded Infrastructure & Platforms Innovation of the Year at the 2017 ACT State iAwards and also won the Public Sector & Government Markets Category.
