Thomas Duryea Logicalis Announces Partnership With Ivanti In Australia

Ivanti’s range of security solutions, security dashboard and reporting tool provide a single view of an organisation’s security posture to mitigate potential ramifications of the New Privacy Amendment (Notifiable Data Breaches) Bill 2016

Sydney, 3 April 2017 - IT solutions and managed services provider Thomas Duryea Logicalis announced today that it has signed a partnership agreement with Ivanti, a leader in integrating and automating critical business and IT tasks.

Thomas Duryea Logicalis can now offer Ivanti’s range of security solutions, including its real-time security dashboard and reporting tool built in Xtraction, to its customers, providing protection against targeted cyber-attacks and offering a single view of an organisation’s selected security parameters.

This dashboard was designed with the Australian Signals Directorate Top 4 recommendations at the forefront. The recent passage of the Privacy Amendment (Notifiable Data Breaches) Bill 2016, more commonly referred to as the Data Breach Notification Legislation, covers government agencies and organisations governed by the Privacy Act as well as businesses with a turnover of more than $3 million a year.

Organisations that determine they have been breached or have lost data will, by law, need to report the incident to the Privacy Commissioner and notify affected customers as soon as they become aware of a breach. This legislation has raised the stakes significantly when it comes to cyber security reporting in Australia.

Combing Ivanti’s leading application whitelisting, patching and privilege management solutions with the new security dashboard allows organisations to implement the ASD’s Top 4 recommendations to mitigate at least 85% of targeted cyber intrusions, and enable real-time insight of an organisation’s security regime against these strategies.

David Gulli, Chief Technology Officer, Thomas Duryea Logicalis, said: “Enterprise IT security is increasingly becoming more complex with the emergence of multi-cloud strategies, mobility, and the increased adoption of everything-connected trends. This means that the traditional IT security approach is no longer effective against today's cybersecurity threats.

“Up until now, there has not been a cost-effective, holistic approach in the market that can demonstrate a single-view of an entire organisation’s security posture in relation to the ASD’s recommendations,” Gulli continued.

By partnering with Ivanti, Thomas Duryea Logicalis will be able to help Australian organisations implement solutions to address most of the ASD’s Top 4 recommendations and help avoid a possible breach and subsequent penalties under the new data breach notification legislation. The Ivanti security dashboard and reporting tool gives a single view of the organisation’s security posture, making security risk, compliance and governance reporting much more transparent.

Michael Bosnar, Area Vice President ANZ, Ivanti said: “Our partnership with Thomas Duryea Logicalis brings to the table an alignment of cyber security and business strategy. Ivanti’s security dashboard offers interoperability between different security assets, thus providing the IT department and the business a real-time, end-to-end view of the organisation.”
