BNS Group today announced the availability of its msXsms Enterprise SMS Gateway software for Australian Government.
msXsms Enterprise SMS gateway software focuses on targeted areas of the Australian Government Information Security Manual (ISM) (previously known aa ACSI33) developed by the Defence Signals Directorate. ISM provides policies and guidance to Australian Government agencies on how to protect their ICT systems.
The Defence Signals Directorate produces the Australian Government Information Security Manual (ISM). The manual is the standard which governs the security of Government ICT system and complements the Protective Security Policy Framework.
msXsms adheres to the email protective marking standards allowing Australian Government to now use SMS as a viable communications channel to the public and their own staff.
"We see many Government Departments using this technology to alert their own staff in addition to providing a 2 way communications channel to the public" said Laurence Buchanan, Director Sales & Marketing BNS Group.
msXsms provides the necessary security controls for Government Departments and Agencies to allow controlled classification of SMS messaging to and/or from public SMS networks.
msXsms Enterprise solution won the 2010 Australian Information Industry Association’s ACT state iAward for the best in Communications category sponsored by ZD Net Australia.
The award was for the application of innovative communications technology when Suncorp and GIO used msXsms in the 2010 natural disasters in Queensland, Victoria, Western Australia and Tornado affected regions around Lennox Head in New South Wales to process claims quickly and effectively.
