archTIS Ltd (ASX:AR9) has been selected to help solve the space tracking data-sharing challenges of Curtin University utilising the company's Kojensi Enterprise information security platform in a new manner.
Marking the company’s first win in the education and space sectors, Curtin University has contracted archTIS to build and implement differential access controls for an Australian DataLake for Space Situational Awareness (SSA) data.
The DataLake is a paid prototype that will implement Kojensi Enterprise and Axiomatic’s attribute-based access control (ABAC) policy engine to provide individually customised access to data repositories.
Further exposure of Kojensi platform
archTIS will enable different stakeholders and organisations to access information, collaborate and query information at different levels of sensitivity through the DataLake, generating $62,000 in initial revenue.
The collaborative nature of the project means further exposure of the Kojensi platform to other universities, government departments, industry participants and government-funded organisations on a national and international stage.
“Broad demand for Kojensi”
archTIS chief executive officer Daniel Lai said this was an exciting achievement for the company.
“It demonstrates the broad demand for Kojensi outside the government sector and reinforces our recent efforts to pivot the platform to service a larger number of customers.
“This win puts archTIS at the forefront of providing secure differential access to big data services dealing with sensitive information, a key growth market for archTIS given the global explosion of big data analytics and artificial intelligence.”
Benefits of building cyber resilience
Curtin chose archTIS after identifying the benefits of the Kojensi Platform in assisting build cyber resilience for educational institutions through protecting sensitive systems, intellectual property and research.
The contract is also a significant win in the growing Australian and global space industry sector.
According to KPMG, the Australian space industry sector is a $5 billion market growing at an annual growth rate of 8.6%.
Entry into big data analytics
This DataLake prototype will leverage archTIS’ Kojensi Platform and be the company’s first integration with Axiomatics, paving the way for Kojensi to enter the exciting big data analytics market.
The challenge of granular access control to big data analytics between government, industry and the education sectors securely is a global problem.
