The newest Sophos Central data center has gone live in Mumbai, India. Sophos Central is the cloud-based management platform that supports our portfolio of advanced, next-gen security products.
The India data center joins our longtime data centers in the U.S., Germany, and Ireland, as well as the new data centers we recently launched in Canada, in Australia, and in Japan.
Growth and data
Rolling out these new data centers serves two main purposes.
First: We’re growing. What began almost a decade ago as a humble but innovative cloud-based platform to manage endpoints and servers has evolved into an intelligent, data-filled command center for just about any computing asset a business would need to protect.
We’ve got more products, customers, and actionable data than ever before, so this additional infrastructure provides the capacity we’ll need to continue to grow into the future.
Second: We recognize the importance of providing organizations of all sizes, in all sectors – public or private – with the flexibility of being able to store, manage, and access Sophos Central data locally from in-country data centers.
These new data centers provide data-sovereignty solutions for organizations with strict national or local regulatory or policy requirements. We’re constantly exploring opportunities for additional data centers in other parts of the world as well.
At launch, the India data center supports our Intercept X endpoint and server products – including Sophos XDR – as well as our full-disk encryption product, our Managed Threat Response service, and Cloud Optix, with additional product support to come.
With massive digital transformation due to accelerated cloud adoption, many Indian organizations 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 center enables Sophos to address the business issues that impact cybersecurity buying decisions of these organizations. 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.”
