Are any of these true for you?

  • You are the CISO, Security Manager or an Information Security Executive responsible for administrative systems
  • Your facility collaborates on sensitive information like forward planning, human resource and research projects
  • Your collaboration committees may include:
    • Faculty deans
    • Academics
    • Management and university staff
    • External research collaborators
  • You have vendor-supplied, cloud-based storage facilities where staff share files – but these aren’t adequate for sensitive content
  • Many authorised collaborators are outside your influence and you have no control over how they use your content
  • You’re fairly sure that mobile devices, USB sticks and email are used to share sensitive content
  • Any breaches of sensitive content could adversely affect the university’s reputation and compromise the privacy of students or staff.

Have you tried to secure your sensitive collaborations by considering:

  1. An Enterprise File Sharing System – but found that it provided some file protection but wasn’t designed for secure collaboration; you’d need to add third party tools which would add cost, complexity and risk
  2. Enterprise Collaboration Tools – but found they were better for collaboration than security; the stated security levels didn’t apply to the tools themselves and user configuration needed IT support
  3. Secure Collaboration Tools – but found they might restrict access but couldn’t control how content was used, especially on mobile devices. You also found these tools were very new and you weren’t comfortable using untried technologies.

How CommandHub Supports your Institution

Based on Military Principles

CommandHub was designed from the ground up for secure collaboration. Based on the Military Principle of multiple layered servers, CommandHub deploys multiple levels of document encryption and infrastructure protection.

The CommandHub solution is IRAP certified to the Australian Signals Directorate ISM 2020 PROTECTED standard. All data is wholly hosted and managed in Australia under the Sovereign Cloud Principles for Critical Infrastructure.

Protection on Mobile Devices

The security of servers is critical for collaboration and so is the protection of information in transit and in use. CommandHub replaces vulnerable browsers with a double-encrypted file transfer tunnel. With patented HubVault technology, committee members can securely access and use your sensitive data even on smartphones and tablets. Data on these devices is double encrypted and, since the master key is not stored on the device, they are ‘uncrackable’ if they’re mislaid or lost.

‘Need-To-Know’ Access

CommandHub applies the intelligence principle of compartmentation, providing user access on a ‘need to know’ basis. CommandHub lets you create multiple levels of compartments and set access and use controls for each level or compartment, using the principle of least privilege. This gives you granular control over individual compartments and removes the time, complexity and errors associated with adding permissions at the file or user level.

Logical Business Controls

CommandHub makes collaboration easy for users while ensuring that your organisation’s business processes are followed. You can set controls for who can see, edit or save a file, who may move or share it, how approvals and rejections apply, along with control over the exact sequence of these steps as well as version control, watermarking, file-locking and more.

Tailored to Your Exact Needs

With over 500 configuration settings, CommandHub is easy to align with the way your organisation works. By turning on or off rules for files, access, use, formats and settings at any level, CommandHub ensures that your critical data is fully protected, without impeding how your collaborators work.

Ease of Setup, Use & Control

CommandHub was designed to be deployed by business users. The intuitive interface makes collaboration easy, and there’s no need for IT support. Typically it takes just an hour’s training before your administrators are able to arrange content logically for your collaborators and apply controls to protect it. When circumstances change, administrators can make the necessary changes to settings.

Proven In Situations Like Yours

CommandHub has been protecting sensitive content in the most demanding situations for over a decade. In addition to Education, these include Government, Justice, Defence Contracting, Finance and Telecommunications. Ask us about our case studies.
