In July, the company launched a virtual data centre in India. This data centre located in Mumbai aims to assist the country’s enterprises in meeting data sovereignty requirements and strengthening their cyber defenses.
This data centre is hosted by Amazon Web Services (AWS) and offers direct, high-performance access to SentinelOne's XDR (Extended Detection and Response) platform that offers protection against various cyberattacks. The company also said that this move will enable organisations to store their logs within Indian borders, ensuring compliance with data sovereignty regulations.
