Global cybersecurity solutions provider Sophos has planned to provide new data centers in Montreal, Canada, in July; Sydney, Australia, in August; and Tokyo, Japan, in September. Sophos already has data centers located in the United States, Ireland and Germany.
The planned new data centers would provide critical additional regional capacity to address the growing global demand for Sophos Central, their cloud management platform that supports Sophos’ portfolio of advanced cybersecurity products.
Sophos’ strategic initiative also provides organizations of all sizes, in both private and public market sectors, with the flexibility of an in-country data center and the ability to store, manage and access data locally from Sophos Central.
Threat Detection and Protection, Data Storage
“As a global leader in cybersecurity, Sophos understands the growing need to provide data sovereignty solutions for organizations with strict national or local regulatory or policy requirements,” said Dan Schiappa, chief product officer at Sophos. “Additionally, with the fast and massive migration to cloud computing, some organizations simply want to store their data in a specific geographical location. With our data center expansion plans, Sophos would be able to address these critical business issues and add more capacity for growth.”
The initial products and services in Sophos’ portfolio with access to the new data centers include Sophos’ extended detection and response (XDR), endpoint, server, encryption, Cloud Optix, and Managed Threat Response solutions.
“With cyberattacks like ransomware now more complex and costly, organizations need to prioritize innovative cybersecurity products and services that are intuitive and operate from a single, integrated cloud management console,” added Mr. Schiappa. “We want to make it as easy as possible for organizations and channel partners to align with Sophos for the world’s best threat protection and detection and data storage options.”
