Ministry of Social Development seeks network security supplier

The Ministry of Social Development has issued a Request for Proposal to find a supplier of firewall/network security support services.

The ministry is looking for a vendor that can provide a firewall solution to comprehensively integrate with the existing Cisco IP network and Microsoft Exchange infrastructure.

According to the RFP, the term of the contract awarded will be for a minimum of three years, with the MSD having two right of renewals, for a term of no more than one year each, at its discretion.

The RFP mentions that resellers must hold the following partner status with the technology they are proposing: Fortinet Platinum Partner, Cisco Gold Partner, Juniper J-Partner (Advanced Security Specialisation), Checkpoint Gold Partner, or McAfee Elite.

The solutions will be deployed in three data centre locations (Wellington, Upper Hutt and Auckland).
