Software developer and cyber security company archTIS confirmed that the United States’ National Institute of Health (NIH), Center for Scientific Review (CSR) had upgraded their use of archTIS’ NC Protect zero trust data capability.

The announcement came as the Biden administration signed a new executive order to ensure compliance with new cyber security requirements.

archTIS explained that the CSR is the NIH’s portal to review grant applications and review their scientific merit, where it then organises findings to be peer reviewed.


Kurt Mueffelmann, global chief operating officer and US president of archTIS welcomed the opportunity to help US government departments meet their cyber security capability requirements.

“We are pleased to have NIH expand their instance of NC Protect; particularly as we build out our US Federal presence. The Biden administration recently issued an executive order on “improving the nation’s cyber security” which requires federal agencies to develop a plan to implement a zero-trust security architecture,” he said.

“NC Protect helps address the requirement by extending the zero-trust methodology to data access and sharing using attribute-based access controls (ABAC) to more effectively secure sensitive information in Microsoft applications.”

The confirmation comes as Cirrus Networks and archTIS announced a partnership to resell archTIS’ ABAC information security solutions to customers nationwide.

The partnership aims to allow Cirrus Networks, a leading IT solutions integrator, to resell and provide services for archTIS’ NC Protect solution to support enterprise, government and defence clients across Australia with the ability to securely access and collaborate on sensitive and classified data.

According to Chris McLaughlin, acting CEO at Cirrus Networks, partnering with archTIS will help take the company's security offering to the next level.

"It’s fantastic to see two Australian SMEs working together to help protect our customers' sensitive data using innovative solutions coupled with high quality service execution," McLaughlin said.
