eduVPN – securing your privacy when you are out and about

Free Wi-Fi is a luxury we have come to expect at cafes, airports, on commuter trains or in the hotel we are staying at. But are you actually aware of how vulnerable you are when you are using a public Wi-Fi hotspot?

Ensuring scientists and researchers get their data where it needs to be

Researchers at La Trobe University, Australia, collaborate with colleagues conducting fieldwork at archeological sites across Africa. FileSender, a solution enabling these researchers and thousands of others worldwide to transfer large datasets from the field to the lab, is now benefiting from a new home for sustainable R+E software development.

Life sciences researchers fast-track medical breakthroughs

Researchers collaborated across continents to advance our understanding of diabetic kidney disease and metabolic changes in pregnancy. High-speed networking plays a critical role connecting researchers and data in Australia to data, resources and colleagues located in Europe. 

Making big data deliver

Researchers at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre in Melbourne wanted to know why there were an increasing number of patients – about a third of them women – being diagnosed with certain types of lung cancer when none of them had smoked and their families had no history of cancer. They turned to big data analytics.
