Verizon lands $15 million AFP contract

It will supply a managed gateway service, boosting security, reliability and efficiency of its IT systems

Verizon has landed a $15 million deal with the Australian Federal Police (AFP) to supply a managed gateway service to boost security, reliability and overall efficiency of its IT systems.

Under the three-year deall, Verizon will supply the AFP and its client agencies: Australian Crime Commission, CRIMTRAC Agency, Australian Transaction Reports and Analysis Centre and Commonwealth Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions, with a dual Internet gateway service.

It will provide intrusion detection and firewall, anti-spam, anti-virus, and VPN management and DOS protection with IPv6-capable bandwidth.

It will also staff a local contact centre, providing 24/7 support.

This agreement falls in line with the Federal government’s gateway reduction program led by the Department of Finance.

It plans to reduce its Internet gateways to eight from 124 during a four-year period, from 2010 to 2014. It aims to achieve $25 million in savings.

In 2011, Verizon signed a five-year agreement worth more than $50 million with the Australian Department of Defense for a fully managed, dual Internet gateway solution and professional services support.
