How can we help you?

Who we are

A privately owned Australian ICT Managed Services Provider, founded in 1999
We’re a leading managed services provider, focused on turning your technology challenges into real results.

Technology comes with a lot of promise, but in a lot of cases, is always more complicated and difficult in the delivery.

Well, our purpose is to make technology real by bringing clarity to the cloud — leading secure multi-cloud solutions. In fact, we’ve been securing and managing most of the NSW government agencies’ clouds for the last 20 years, so our expertise, governance, and security are tested at the highest levels.

Where we’ve come from

AC3 is a privately owned Australian ICT Managed Services Provider (MSP). Founded in 1999, our purpose is to make technology real and with over 14.000 virtual machines under management, we do this for more than half of the NSW State Government agencies and over 700 commercial customers.

With over 350 full time employees and over 80 contractors, AC3 has the skills and scale to help our customers realise their business objectives. Add to that our 1200+ contingent workforce who are certified and pre-vetted, and you can trust that AC3 are nimble enough to meet the requirements of any project.


Why Choose AC3?

Government-grade security
When you work with us, you’ll be in good company. Trusted by more than 50% of NSW government agencies – including the NSW Department of Justice and the NSW Treasury – you can sleep soundly knowing your data is secure. In fact, we are the largest MSP in the NSW Government Data Centres and actually created the private network that the NSW government uses for its most secure communications.
Technology made real
A lot of companies talk digital transformation, but few have the people and processes to execute it in a way that works with you. Because we use agile methodologies with a proven delivery framework, you can deliver business changing innovations quicker and safer. In fact, 86% of our team are in delivery roles like DevOps, infrastructure, network and software engineering.
