High-security IT lifecycle centre opens in Canberra

A new IT lifecycle services centre designed for the federal government and Defence has officially opened in Canberra.

Australian IT asset management company Greenbox opened its latest facility, with the Canberra office becoming its fourth location behind Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.

Defence Industry Minister Christopher Pyne congratulated Greenbox on its new office, which will manage sensitive IT assets, from staging and installation through to data sanitisation and disposal.

"This centre provides Defence and federal government with secure large-scale IT lifecycle services backed by Defence standards, the International Standards Organisation and Responsible Recycling accreditations," Minister Pyne said.

"This centre will enable Australian company Greenbox to build on the work provided to Defence since 2012, which ensures sensitive data is handled appropriately."

The Canberra team will be made up of 25 security-cleared specialists.
