‘Need-To-Know’ Compartmentation

CommandHub® applies the Intelligence Community principles of highly secure compartments, restricting user access on a ‘need to know’ basis.

With this approach, multiple levels of compartmentation, each with their own access controls, provide the ability to restrict specific information so that even senior people with high-level privileges will only see the information they need to perform their duties.

This granular control over individual compartments, using the principle of ‘least privilege’ greatly reduces the amount of time, complexity and error associated with adding permissions at the file or user level.

End-to-End Protection including Mobile Devices

Protecting information at the server level is only the start. CommandHub protects sensitive information at rest, in transit and in use. Its patented HubVault technology replaces insecure browsers with a double-encrypted file transfer tunnel.

Each file on the user’s device is encrypted with a unique randomly-generated key then encrypted again. A non-recoverable master key makes the devices virtually ‘uncrackable’ if misplaced or stolen.

This protection is particularly relevant to sensitive content on tablets and smartphones which are inherently insecure with device encryption compromised because the key is stored on the device, remote wiping is ineffective if mobile and wifi access are disabled, and device caching retains components of recently viewed material.

Genuine Ease-of-Use

CommandHub was designed for business users, not IT specialists. After a short training session, administrators are able to establish logical compartments for collaborators and apply granular controls. When projects end or teams or priorities change, the administrators can amend the controls and configurations themselves, without involving the IT team.

The intuitive interface makes collaboration so easy and transparent that users won’t need help from IT or to take risky shortcuts, like sending sensitive files via personal email accounts.

Full text searching is provided and multiple file downloads and uploads are facilitated by a simple drag-and-drop functionality.

For mobile devices, both facial and fingerprint biometric access are provided to streamline the user experience. After the first use, connectivity can be automated without re-entering login details, and updated content automatically synchronised when connectivity is established.

Logical Business Controls

CommandHub ensures intended business processes are followed while making it easy for users to share documents and collaborate.

Logical controls with advanced workflows facilitate restrictions on who can see, edit or save a file, who may move it to where, how approvals or rejections apply and the exact sequence of these steps. Controls can be set for how internal and external parties use sensitive content.

Many more document level options are available including categories, expiry, locking, version control and watermarking.

  • Documents can be searched and annotated.



Built as a portable document management and IP repository on the CommandHub platform, InterHub allows travelling executives to take a limited subset of sensitive documents with them on their international travels. In the event that the devices and/or passwords of your team member are compromised, you can rest assured that only a limited set of encrypted documents can be accessed.

Key features of InterHub include:

  • Secure internet access to IP via an intermediary server when you travel
  • Protect your IP from Cyber Espionage, theft and copyright infringement – securely store blueprints, plans, strategies, code base, ideas etc with optional PDF watermarking
  • Removes the need to VPN into the corporate network to access shared drives
  • CommandHub can be used as a temporary staging server for the import/export of sensitive material while travelling
  • Australian sovereign data storage
  • Secure end points with 2-layer transit encryption
