Australian made key management solution Torus

Where it all began

Founded in Australia in 2001 under the name CIC Technology, our vision was simple, but ambitious.

We set out to design a solution to make key management a breeze for building owners and managers – by placing security and usability at the fore.

With a strong foothold in the Australian government sector, our intuitive and efficient solution soon rose to popularity more broadly.

Still the provider of choice for the Australian military and other government agencies (thanks to our unrivalled SCEC security credentials), we’re now widely trusted by diverse industries across Australia, Asia, Europe and North America.

Continual innovation – underpinned by a single philosophy

Every aspect of our business is guided by a single philosophy – that the value of technology is to improve people’s lives.

That’s why we developed a product to automate repetitive activities and provide greater control over your assets. Safety, security and peace of mind. That’s our enduring promise to you.

But as a technology company, we also know that innovation must never stop. That’s why we continually invest in R&D – and stay deeply in tune with our customers’ needs. The result? Industry-leading key management features, improved efficiency and even greater security via our cloud software.

Key milestones over the years

Moving across the equator

In 2012, we established ourselves in North America. And with each passing year, we are rapidly gaining interest from new geographic markets across the globe.

Unrivalled security credentials

In 2014, our high-security cabinets were formally SCEC approved to Security Level 4 – an essential credential for servicing the defence sector. We are the first and only provider in the world to achieve such status.

Moving to the cloud – and a rebrand

In 2020, we became Torus – the next evolution of our brand. In line with the launch of our cloud-based software, we continue to harness new technologies to deliver an unparalleled product and customer experience.
