InternetNZ proud of RealMe flying NZ flag at Internet Award

InternetNZ proud of RealMe flying NZ flag at Internet Award


Last night at the InternetNZ co-sponsored Australia and New Zealand Internet Awards, the Department of Internal Affairs and NZ Post's RealME online authentication service won the award for Security & Online Safety.

InternetNZ Chief Executive Jordan Carter said that he was proud that a New Zealand project took out an award, particularly in an area of so much debate.

"Security and Online Safety are so important to how we use the Internet. We won't maximise the Internet's full potential if we do not trust it. It's projects like RealMe that help give New Zealanders faith that what they do online is safe and secure.

"RealMe allows users to access a multitude of services using one convenient username and password, backed by an assurance that the identifier relates to a known person. This provides a level of assurance to those providing online services that can help build trust in delivering services online. Making sure these services are secure and accessible is a great challenge, and DIA and NZ Post are to be applauded for their win.

"It's through projects like these that will enable us to make a better New Zealand through a better Internet," said Mr Carter.

The ANZIAs are a collaboration between .au Domain Administration Ltd (auDA) and InternetNZ and recognise organisations, businesses and individuals who excel in delivering accessible, innovative, informative and secure resources to a diverse and wide community on the Internet.
