National cyber defence centre brings together Orro cyber force of 80+ security experts

 Sydney – Orro, Australia’s leading platform-enabled secure network and digital infrastructure provider, has today announced the launch of a National Cyber Defence Centre (NCDC) to safeguard organisations against evolving cyber threats.

 Building on Orro’s leading cyber security expertise, the NCDC integrates existing state-of-the-art Security Operations Centres (SOC) in Sydney,Brisbane, and the UK bringing together a team of security analysts, penetration testers, incident responders, and security consultants.

 Beyond cybersecurity, the NCDC offers access to experts in network security, architecture, engineering, and design across Orro, elevating the value delivered to customers beyond traditional cybersecurity services.

 Operating as a single team, the NCDC is strategically located between Orro’s security hubs in Sydney and Brisbane, complemented by on-the-ground resources in Melbourne and Perth. To support the Australian-based team, Orro has established a  contingent of cyber security analysts in the United Kingdom to provide 24/7 follow-the-sun coverage.

 Rob Merkwitza, Chief Strategy Officer, Orro says, “With over 20 years of experience securing Government and enterprise clients, Orro is uniquely equipped to support organisations at every stage of their security journey, helping them mature and stay resilient in the face of evolving threats.”

 “Combining the expertise of over 80 cyber professionals, the National Cyber Defence Centre sets a new standard of excellence in the industry. We are excited to collaborate with new and existing clients to help them navigate the complex cybersecurity landscape with confidence,” Merkwitza added.

 From providing an entirely outsourced security service to seamlessly integrating with a client’s internal security team, Orro acts as a trusted security partner, providing invaluable knowledge and skill sets that organisations might lack internally.

 Orro launched two years ago, in July 2021, after successfully merging a number of Australian IT companies, and has since delivered state-of-the-art solutions to leading enterprises and the public sector, including Australia Post, Flight Centre, QLD State Government and Star Entertainment Group.

 Orro delivers a new generation of secure network and digital infrastructure solutions, tailored to the specific needs of each customer. With operations across fast-growing technology areas, strong partnerships and more than 400 customers, Orro’s technologies deliver greater efficiency, performance, agility and resilience.
