Announcement Content:

Red Piranha and Downer’s Defence Systems business have formed a partnership to develop an integrated holistic information security program to support Australia’s critical infrastructure.

Red Piranha Limited (Red Piranha), Australia’s first next-generation firewall developer, and Downer are pleased to announce they have entered into a technology partnership, combining Downer’s technology and security expertise with Red Piranha’s Crystal Eye® advanced Unified Threat Management (UTM) solution.

Red Piranha is an Australian owned and operated manufacturer of leading-edge security products for small to medium businesses through to large multinationals. Red Piranha’s flagship product, Crystal Eye®, is a powerful UTM solution enabling Security Orchestration, Automation and Response (SOAR) as a service.

The partnership will see Downer and Red Piranha commence designing a ‘proof of concept’ to be deployed into a pilot program later in the year.

Downer Executive General Manager, Practice Capability, Dan Murray, said, “With cyber security a concern spanning all business sectors, companies recognise the importance of implementing sophisticated defence capabilities.”

“As part of Downer’s delivery of services to the national security and critical infrastructure sectors, we are focused on improving the security posture of assets in what is an increasingly complex threat environment. We look forward to working with Red Piranha to develop a product that will offer a simple and integrated approach to delivering enhanced levels of risk visibility and security assurance for industrial customers,” he said.

Red Piranha’s CEO, Adam Bennett said: “I’m excited about the partnership and Red Piranha’s chance to deploy Crystal Eye®, a truly integrated holistic information security program, with a major integrated services provider for critical infrastructure.

"For the past two decades we have increased our use of technology in everyday lives and business. This uptake of technology has seen the attack surface scale and grow exponentially at the same time. The way we have attempted to deal with this problem up until now is to throw more people at the security problem. This doesn't scale and is the opposite of leverage. We strive at Red Piranha to develop technology that allows us to scale with the problem, addressing fundamental flaws in the current approach at dealing with enterprise cyber security issues," said Mr Bennett.

About Red Piranha:

At Red Piranha, we came up with a simple concept: a holistic security solution that works. Recruiting a team of experts from around the globe – from engineers to academics to ethical hackers – we worked to develop the most exhaustive and effective security controls available on the market.

In 2013, we integrated the threat intelligence platform into the development of the Crystal Eye Unified Threat Management system for advanced cloud and on-premise protection. Since then, we've developed additional capability around threat detection and incident response along with the integration of other advanced security capabilities to evolve into the Crystal Eye XDR platform.

The result? A comprehensive platform of threat management tools that ensures advanced protection, threat detection and incident response.

Because when our most valuable assets are digital, quick fixes shouldn’t be the status quo – and shrouding them in a fog of confusion shouldn’t be either. At Red Piranha, we believe having the safest, most reliable information security system is everyone’s right – regardless of industry or budget.

Our Vision
Our philosophy is clear. End-to-end protection for your enterprise that meets ever-changing compliance regulations. We’re committed to offering superior security products and services at an accessible price, so even small to medium businesses can enjoy ironclad information protection.

Our Pioneering Products
We have developed Crystal Eye - one of the first Extended Detection & Response (XDR) platforms available on the market that aims to address all of an organisation's security needs to protect, detect and respond to sophisticated cyber threats. This features rapid deployment, simple configuration and customizable alert tuning to reduce administrative burden. Our systems are developed at our Red Piranha facilities under rigorous quality control standards to ensure you receive reliable, state-of-the-art hardware and our innovative software solutions.
