Sovereign Data Protection for Remote Working

Government and organisations in critical national industries made a dramatic leap to implement or extend remote working this year and will likely integrate aspects of this into long-term strategies. In March 2020, Australia National University (ANU) needed to quickly transition students, staff, and lecturers from on-campus learning to a remote platform with the same level of functionality and access to resources, whilst also maintaining the same high levels of data protection. This case study looks at how the ANU was able to maintain sovereign data protection by utilising AUCloud leveraging VMware technology.
