Working with and supporting some of Australia’s best-known organisations, Macquarie Telecom is Australia’s only integrated Managed Hosting, Cloud and Telecommunications Company offering managed dedicated servers, managed co-location, and managed private, hybrid and public clouds. Macquarie Telecom’s fully-owned, Australian based data centres are the most secure and accredited data centres in Australia with ISO27001, PCI Compliance, DSD Gateway and ASIO Intruder Resistant accreditation.
In 2016, Macquarie Telecom opened its world-class $60M IntelliCentre 2 data center in Sydney. In recognition of its exemplary design and implementation, IntelliCentre 2 was the first data center in Australia to receive Tier III Design Certification for 100% uptime during maintenance. The data centre also boasts global top-tier levels of service and cybersecurity with certifications including ISO27001, ASIO T4, and DSD Gateway Certification.
IntelliCentre 2 was designed to allow 24/7 accessibility for ultimate customer accessibility; however, the granting and organizing of physical right-of-entry remained a manual process. Macquarie Telecom employed TZ’s Centurion System as a solution platform for cost-effective, highly efficient and secure customer access, with the commitment to roll out TZ’s solution on at least 95% of IntelliCentre 2’s total cabinet deployment.
With the support of TZ, Macquarie Telecom integrated TZ Centurion into their MacquarieView customer portal, extending customers’ ability to manage their IT infrastructures with real-time performance visibility to include physical access, monitoring and reporting at a granular level. With the integration of TZ’s solution, customers are now able to remotely audit and schedule visits to their cabinets.
“Our emphasis on data security has already seen us granted ASIO T4 and DSD Gateway Protected status as one of the country’s most secure hosting providers,” James Mystakidis, General Manager of Hosting.
With the successful implementation of the system, Macquarie Telecom is now exploring the potential to retrofit the TZ solution at their existing facilities across Australia.
