ASIO pays eDIME for Dawesome web experience

According to eDIME's managing director, Marcus St. John Dawe, the ASIO site, which is remotely hosted and managed by eDIME, contains historical and current information about the government agency's movements, as well as ASIO career opportunity information.

The ASIO deal is the latest in a string of government internet contracts for eDIME, whose list of credits already includes the websites of the Australian Taxation Office, the Australian Defence Force and the prime minister.

The $5 million, 20-employee, privately funded company was responsible for the site management of last year's referendum vote, and will do the same for next year's federal election, Dawe said.

Dawe acknowledged that the ASIO site could appear an attractive target to hackers, but stressed that the site is not connected in any way to ASIO's internal confidential files.

"Worldwide, governments are waking up to denial-of-service attacks," he said.

Nevertheless, eDIME will provide ongoing firewall security for the site as well as 24 x 7 support.

Dawe could not disclose the monetary value of the ASIO website deal, but described it as "mid-sized".

Dawe expects eDIME will remain busy for the foreseeable future with government website development since newly formed online guidelines -- pertaining to site visibility and metadata requirements -- mean that many government sites need upgrading.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
