Code42, a Minneapolis, Minnesota-based provider of endpoint data protection and management solutions, has entered into an agreement with EvoSwitch to take up colocation space and power at their AMS1 data center in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
To support customers facing Europe’s increased regulatory climate for data privacy, the company has now opened its second European data center – with EvoSwitch in Amsterdam.
Code42’s growth in Europe would reflect its broader overall corporate growth worldwide. In the past year, the company grew its headcount to more than 430 employees and increased its global customer base by more than 50 percent year-over-year for a second consecutive year.
“The European market for data privacy and endpoint data protection is ripe for our solutions,” said Andy Hardy, EMEA managing director at Code42. “With two data centers serving Europe, we uniquely support European companies and global entities doing business here that are required to comply with European data privacy regulations. And because we encrypt data before it leaves the device, and allow customers to keep their encryption keys on-premises no matter where data is stored, we alleviate European customer security concerns regarding compliance with the USA PATRIOT Act.”
EvoSwitch is an Amsterdam, Netherlands-based provider of data center services. The company currently has two colocation facilities available including a data center in the Washington area.
