Kiteworks - also known as SecureFile - is a whole of government solution to securely transfer sensitive information outside of government.
The Attorney-General's Department (AGD) requires information identified as 'Sensitive' to be encrypted when being transmitted over public networks.
Kiteworks has strong protections, providing encryption for data in transit and also while the data is at rest.
AGD has its own instance of Kiteworks and has applied a level of protection that complies with the Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPs 140-2). Files are encrypted using AES 256-bit encryption and each file has a unique key.
External vendors or cloud providers do not have access to SA Government data uploaded to Kiteworks. Additionally, system administrators cannot access user's data files on the system.
