FirstWave Cloud Technology Ltd (FirstWave) is an ASX-listed, Australian-headquartered global cyber security company, which has been delivering Cybersecurity-as-a-service solutions to the market since 2004. Today, FirstWave is present on five continents.
At the heart of FirstWave is our unique and proprietary technology – the Cloud Content Security Platform (CCSP). The cloud platform enables our service provider partners to deliver a comprehensive range of security services to their customers from a single platform ‘as-a-Service’. This provides economies-of-scale and efficiencies that enable the provision of a range of security services typically only affordable by very large customers with dedicated cybersecurity resources. We refer to this as “democratising enterprise-grade cyber security-as-a-service”.
CCSP was developed in Australia and today services thousands of end-user customers ranging from small business to large enterprises and government, including the Australian Federal Government, through our Australian service provider partner, Telstra.
Services provided from CCSP include web, email, firewall and endpoint security. Enterprise functionality is provided by some of the world’s leading security appliance vendors including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Fortinet and Trend Micro on both public and private cloud infrastructure. Current major FirstWave service provider partners include Telstra (Australia), NTT Data (UK), Tata Teleservices (India), SHELT Global (Middle East), and Cisco Systems Inc (USA).
FirstWave has offices in Sydney, Melbourne and Singapore with on-the-ground sales and support in Australia, UK, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, India and South East Asia.
FirstWave’s infrastructure, management and security processes are certified to ISO 27001 Information Security Management System Standard, ISO 9001 Quality Management System Standard and, in conjunction with Telstra, have passed IRAP assessment for ISM compliance to host Australian Government data up to PROTECTED classification level.
What we do
FirstWave's CSSP is the only automated cybersecurity-as-a-service orchestration and management platform with integrated machine learning for service providers that integrates and multi-tenants enterprise-grade email, web, firewall virtual appliances and endpoint protection services from global security leaders. New security technology can be readily on-boarded and integrated to deliver innovative new cybersecurity services.
CCSP integrates into the service providers’ operational and billing systems allowing them to offer their customers a cloud-delivered, subscription-based, integrated, low cost and expanding range of cybersecurity services-as-a- service.
FirstWave solves two critical problems:
- For Service Providers: how to meet increasing demand for affordable, effective and easy to implement cyber- security and create new, profitable, revenue streams, and
- For end-user customers: minimising business risk associated with ever-increasing cyber-crime with affordable, enterprise quality solutions.
The CCSP platform provides “multi-tenancy”. This means that one license from FirstWave’s technology provider can be applied across many customers each of whom is kept discrete, separate and independent, but still has access to the security services they have subscribed to at significantly reduced cost. The platform also provides a range of services for the service provider to optimise their operations. These services include orchestration, automation, provisioning and billing. CCSP has been designed to be extensible to enable a range of new security services and capabilities e.g adaptive cyber risk and threat intelligence enrichment, automated threat detection & response as well as a broader choice of security vendor technologies.
CCSP is a unique, home-grown, world class solution to a growing cyber security problem.
