High-security, large-scale IT lifecycle facility formally opened by Christopher Pyne MP

Canberra, Australia – March 13, 2018 – Greenbox Systems has announced the formal launch of its Canberra IT Commissioning Centre (ITCC), a highly-secure IT lifecycle services facility specifically designed for the Federal Government and Defence sectors.

The new site was opened today by Australian Minister for Defence Industry, the Hon. Christopher Pyne MP.

Greenbox manages its customers’ IT assets end-to-end, from pre-deployment and installation, right through critical data sanitisation and disposal to ensure sensitive information is effectively destroyed when a device is replaced.

The Canberra ITCC – expanding Greenbox’s existing footprint in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne – will provide Federal Government and Defence agencies with secure and large-scale IT services backed by Defence standards, ISO and R2 accreditations. Projects conducted through the facility will be managed by a team of 25 security-cleared specialists.

Shane Mulholland, Chief Executive Officer at Greenbox, said the commissioning centre was designed to fulfil the need for specialist resources in the Canberra region, addressing the demand for scalable, security-focused lifecycle services from its target markets.

“Our emphasis on the secure management of sensitive IT assets from imaging to disposal of extremely-sensitive data has generated significant interest for our services in Canberra,” said Mulholland. “We previously delivered these services via our Sydney facility, however the proliferation in both devices and data, as well as an increase in market demand made it clear we needed a dedicated site to service the nation’s capital.”

In addition to its security certifications, the 1500-square-metre commissioning centre is equipped to process large volumes of devices. Not only can it store more than 1,500 pallets of equipment, but it gives Greenbox the capacity to conduct more than 2,000 Standard Operating Environment (SE) loads daily with 800 machines operating simultaneously.

“The new facility is the largest IT lifecycle service centre in Australia, allowing us to deliver to the needs of large and security-sensitive organisations,” said Mulholland. “For Canberra clients, Greenbox reduces the costs and risks around the IT chain of custody. Having a local facility means that we are highly responsive and can manage all logistics and transportation in-house to the highest security standards.”

The Canberra site is located at 184 Gilmore Road, Queanbeyan West.
