Cyber Security Innovation lands AUCloud in AFR BOSS Most Innovative Companies List for 2023

Leading Australian managed security services and sovereign cloud provider, AUCloud, has overnight been announced as one of Australia’s most innovative companies.

Listed on the AFR BOSS Most Innovative Companies list for 2023, AUCloud ranked 9th in the Technology category for its innovative approach to supporting Australian businesses with dynamic cyber security and data protection solutions.

The Australian Financial Review recognised AUCloud’s commitment to protecting and empowering Australian organisations to be more cyber secure and resilient.

AUCloud innovative approach to managed security services and in particular managed Security Operations Centre (SOC) as a service was highlighted by the judging panel.

Peter Maloney, CEO of AUCloud, said the announcement was a testament to the incredible dedication, creativity, and relentless pursuit of building the most secure and robust cyber security and cloud solutions in the country.

“AUCloud’s commitment to safeguarding Australia’s data and empowering businesses is not only a matter of business security and continuity but also a matter of national importance,” Mr Maloney said.

“By providing an outsourced yet sovereign service SOC option, Australian organisations can with the highest confidence efficiently protect themselves against cyber-attacks.”

“AUCloud managed SOC service means organisations can quickly attain the highest cyber security posture—being able to quickly identify potential threats before they become incidents without having to invest heavily in internal resources and people.”

“The AUCloud service offers 24/7 monitoring, detection and response by our team of Australian security cleared experts.”

AUCloud’s Angela Nguyen and Rafe Berding accept the award at the 2023 AFR BOSS Most Innovative Companies gala event in Sydney.

“We bring together the best minds in cyber security, the most advanced security intelligence and technology platforms to help organisations shield and protect their data, systems, and business operations against global cyber threats.”

“We asked our customers how we could best solve the problem of not having the skills, expertise and technology in-house when it comes to security operations,” Mr Maloney said.

“With the alarming rate of one cybercrime report made every seven minutes in Australia, it’s clear that the problem is getting worse. Australia’s biggest threat is the rise of cybercrime, scams and attacks.”

“AUCloud combines advanced security technology and skilled Australian security cleared analysts to offer scalable and cost-effective protection from cyber threats while ensuring compliance with regulations and industry standards.”

“AUCloud is continuously adapting to meet the evolving challenges of today’s threat landscape, leveraging advancements in technology, following robust innovation processes, all while enabling our people to challenge the norm and think creatively to solve tomorrow’s challenges ahead of time.”

AUCloud also achieved significant recognition at the 2023 Australian Business Awards, securing five accolades for outstanding contributions to Cloud Innovation, Tech Innovation, and for its ongoing commitment to being an Employer of Choice.

AUCloud’s managed security services and SOC services provide Australian organisations with unrivalled security performance 24/7, enabling the protection of data and compliance with industry standards—while effectively countering cyber threats.
