Queensland’s E-Minister, Paul Lucas, was crowing about the Smart State’s large presence in online security at the opening of networking and security services company Clariti’s new Brisbane office last week. “Current global events reflect the need for security for businesses conducting e-commerce, and the good news is Queensland has the second biggest clustering of e-security companies in the world,” Lucas said. Three-year-old Clariti, which started with four staff, now employs 40 people in Australia and Fiji. Its rapid growth meant a move to larger premises in Astor Tce, Spring Hill, was vital, according to CEO, Bruce McCurdy. Staff will be able to enjoy Queensland’s balmy weather on the wrap-around balcony of the top floor offices. Clariti is a Citrix platinum partner and a Microsoft security solutions gold partner.
