For customers that require the same ABAC-based control over their structured and semi-structured data, archTIS has partnered with Okera.

According to Daniel Lai, archTIS managing director, it has marked the first for the partnership with Okera.

"It is rare to find a partner that you align with so strongly from a business perspective and can work with seamlessly, Okera is one of those partners,” Lai said.


"Their complementary platform offers the same policy-based ABAC control over structured data that our products deliver for unstructured data.

"Combined, we can provide an end-to-end solution for granular, zero-trust data access control to ensure all of our joint customers data – from structured to unstructured – is protected."

The alliance enables archTIS to resell and provide the Okera Dynamic Access Platform to support enterprise, government and defence clients in Australia with the ability to securely access sensitive structured data such as records or transactions in a database.

The total contract value of $449,570, of which $241,500 is for annual recurring revenue, and runs until 28 October 2022 with the option for five additional years of licensing.

The contract can be terminated for convenience but provides for payment of deliverables accepted prior to the date of termination, together with any reasonable costs attributable to the termination.

The companies' combined industry experience and capabilities are extensive, according to John Marchese, Okera vice-president for global alliances and partner sales channels.

"At Okera we believe it is vital for organisations to have a secure data access layer to protect and secure sensitive data while ensuring compliance with various privacy regulations," Marchese said.

"We also know that archTIS has the deep industry experience and vertical market knowledge that is critical to implement comprehensive solutions for the most challenging needs of customers.

“It has been a wonderful experience to partner with archTIS, as it is rare to find two companies so well aligned in their focus and expertise around data challenges."
