Telstra has scored a contract to deploy Palo Alto Networks Focused Services to the Bureau of Meteorology to bolster network security.
The contract is worth $5.6 million and runs from May 2019 to June 2022.
“The Bureau of Meteorology has a significant program of work underway to continue improving its ICT security and resilience, in order to enhance the delivery of our services to the Australian community now and into the future,” a bureau spokesperson told CRN.
“For operational and security reasons, the Bureau does not publicly comment on the specifics of its IT systems and contracts.”
Telstra was chosen from the Digital Transformation Agency’s Hardware Marketplace Panel. The panel lists 73 suppliers providing services for enterprise storage, network equipment and network cabling.
