In March 2017, Vault became one of the first two cloud service providers to be granted the Protected level of certification from the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD), allowing Vault to store highly classified government information. Vault has created one of the world’s most secure clouds, with many large Government agencies already procuring Vault’s services, including the Digital Transformation Agency, the Department of Human Services, the Department of Employment, the Department of Health, the Department of Social Services and the Department of Defence.
