Secure collaboration without the risk

The number of cyber security threats and bad actors are on the rise. At the same time effective cross-agency and nation collaboration with PROTECTED information has never been more critical for Federal Government. One misjudgement or threat can leak highly sensitive information that impacts national security, citizens privacy, policy decisions or financial investments across the nation.

Designed specifically for Federal Government, Objective Connect is an Australian developed, supported and hosted, IRAP-assessed up to PROTECTED level, secure file sharing and collaboration application that gives complete control over information when shared externally. It delivers peace of mind by having data security always top of mind, ingrained in each feature and regularly vetted against the Australian Government ACSC's ISM framework.

Richard Jackson

EDRMS Training and Information Analyst, NSW Department of Premier and Cabinet
