Cyber security firm Sophos’ new data centre in Mumbai, which the company announced last month, is now open.
The Sophos data centre provides local capacity to address the growing demand for Sophos Central, the cloud management platform that supports Sophos’ portfolio of enhanced cybersecurity products. The data centre also provides private and public organisations of any size with the ability to store, manage and access data in-country, allowing them to meet local data sovereignty regulations, the company said.
The Sophos India data centre is hosted by Amazon Web Services in Mumbai and is Sophos’ third data centre in the Asia Pacific and Japan region. The other two locations are in Australia and Japan, Sophos said in a statement.
“With massive digital transformation due to accelerated cloud adoption, many Indian organisations want to store their data in the country to meet data sovereignty requirements,” said Sunil Sharma, managing director of sales for India and SAARC, Sophos.
“The local data centre enables Sophos to address the business issues that impact cybersecurity buying decisions of these organisations. This will make it as easy as possible for customers and partners to access the best threat protection and detection and data storage options available from Sophos,” Sharma added.
The initial products and services in the portfolio with access to the new data centre include Sophos Extended Detection and Response (XDR), Sophos Intercept X, Intercept X for Server, Sophos Encryption, and Sophos Managed Threat Response services, the statement said.
