ManageEngine, the IT management division of Zoho Corporation, is now hosting Zoho’s ITSM, ITOM and endpoint management services from its Melbourne and Sydney data centers which are collocated in Equinix’s Australian facilities. The Australian data centers will be hosting regional customers’ data, including customer data previously hosted in other regions’ data centers.

As cloud adoption continues to grow in Australia and New Zealand, so do related concerns about data security and privacy, according to Zoho’s IT management division. In addition to complying with a growing number of data privacy regulations, organizations in the region are increasingly concerned about data sovereignty, says ManageEngine. Specifically, organizations are cautious about cloud service providers (CSPs) that store their personally identifiable information and other business data outside of the country because that data is then governed by another country’s laws.

The newly deployed, ISO 27001-certified, SOC 1 Type II, SOC 2 Type II, PCI-DSS compliant data centers serve users in Australia and New Zealand. Moving forward, ManageEngine’s data centers with Equinix will comply with the requirements of the Australian Signals Directorate.

4,000 Australian Clients

ManageEngine currently has more than 4,000 Australian customers. With its IT management solutions delivered from the two new Australian data centers, ManageEngine solutions are now hosted in 10 company-owned data centers worldwide, including the United States, Ireland, the Netherlands, India and China. Customers can now choose their preferred data center when they sign up for ManageEngine’s cloud services. All 10 of these data centers are managed and monitored by ManageEngine’s solutions.

As the enterprise IT management division of Zoho Corporation, ManageEngine would deliver its services and real-time IT management tools to established and emerging enterprises including nine of every ten Fortune 100 organizations – to ensure optimal performance of their IT infrastructure, including network, servers, applications, desktops and more.
