New security certifications awarded to Vodafone TaaS services

17 September 2018

MEDIA RELEASE - Vodafone has recently had a number of its Telecommunications-as-a-Service (TaaS) Services offerings to Government receive Security Certification by the Lead Agency (Department of Internal Affairs).

The certification means an acceptable risk position is being achieved across a number of Vodafone’s TaaS Services from their Connectivity, Contact Centre and Communications Services Catalogues, as well as their Legacy Connectivity Gateway Service from their Managed Security tower of Services.

Vodafone Enterprise Director Ken Tunnicliffe comments, “Having a number of our TaaS Services  receiving Security Certification is a great achievement for Vodafone, and allows us to continue to effectively support the New Zealand Government’s efforts to streamline telecommunications services for their agencies.

“Our next steps will be to obtain Security Certification for the remainder of our portfolio of services within the Managed Security tower,” says Tunnicliffe.

More than 30,000 mobile users, 13,500 fixed connectivity users and 570 Contact Centre agents access Vodafone’s TaaS Services on a daily basis.

Vodafone has a Government-specific suite of TaaS certified services called Ready Government, which can be accessed through the Government TaaS service catalogue.

The TaaS panel is administered by the Government Chief Digital Office at the Lead Agency (Department of Internal Affairs).
