Our healthcare solution has all you need.

The Macquarie Launch™ Health Cloud has all you need to run your healthcare applications optimally and keep your customers happy:

  • AUS map icon

    We are an Australian company with a 24x7 always-on cloud that hosts your data securely onshore within the Australian Government’s jurisdiction.

  • Dedicated health solutions icon

    We deliver dedicated health solutions with a team of 200+ Australian engineers, security cleared to government standards.

  • Australian Signals Directorate icon

    And the Australian Signals Directorate has designated us one of the few ASD certified cloud providers for sensitive PROTECTED data, with solutions powered by Macquarie Government.

Keep your data safe and your services compliant.

The healthcare sector is responsible for more mandatory data breach reports than any other1.  In addition, the Government’s goalposts for cybersecurity are always moving. Choosing a cloud provider without DHS certification means you can’t register new products, and your DHS platform access will not be renewed.

Our cloud services will keep you compliant with DHS requirements from the minute you sign up. At Macquarie Cloud Services, we’re committed to keeping our cloud accredited and secure at all times, and to meeting new requirements far ahead of any deadlines – together, these mean your products are never under threat.

Health cloud

Why Cloud? Why Macquarie Cloud Services?

Healthcare data is highly sensitive, especially personally identifiable data. To help ensure sensitive data is protected throughout its supply chain, the DHS now requires providers to implement security controls that are commensurate with the sensitivity of the data they handle.

Mandatory now:

  • Australian Signal Directorate’s CCSL certification.
  • Data sovereignty  – All data must remain onshore within the Australian Government’s jurisdiction.

Highly desirable now and mandatory from June 2020:

  • Physical separation of server infrastructure.
  • Those working with the data need to be Australian citizens with government security clearance (NV1).


Comparing cloud solutions can be challenging, but you don’t have to take our word that our Health Cloud is suitable for your needs. In addition to their DHS certification, our Intelligent Data Centres have been independently certified:

Our Health Cloud is an evergreen cloud: there’s no need to upgrade your cloud service or worry about compliance when the rules change.

Secure Health Cloud

Are you at risk?

Qualifying organisations are already subject to the Australian Privacy Act, and since February, 2018, to new Mandatory Breach Reporting obligations. If you’re engaging with the Department of Human Services and participating in the government e-health programme, then the bar for Cloud security is set even higher. As National Critical Infrastructure (NCI) public and private health systems face 4 elevated security requirements:

  • Mandatory. ASD CCSL Certification
  • Mandatory. Data Sovereignty. All data must remain onshore within Australian jurisdiction
  • Highly Desirable. Physical Separation of server infrastructure
  • Highly Desirable. Security Clearances should be limited to citizens holding NV1 clearance
