Cloud security specialist Zscaler has established co-located data centres in Canberra and Auckland.

The new sites complement the existing Zscaler data centre infrastructures in Sydney and Melbourne. All are co-located within Equinix data centres.

The increased capacity provided by the Canberra data centre will help Zscaler meet increased demand from public sector organisations.

"Successful organisations of any size realise that any disruption, regardless of how small a security incident, will have an impact on the business as a whole," says Zscaler Australia regional vice president Steve Singer.

"At present, we support more than a million users from Australia on our platform and these numbers are set to escalate. Bringing new data centre facilities to Canberra and Auckland puts our industry-leading Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange™platform closer to our customers."

He added "Right now, there is an ongoing focus at all levels of the community on the need to reinforce Australia's cybersecurity posture from a range of threats, including potential national state and supply chain attacks.

"Our new data centre infrastructure will further support any new programs which the new Federal Government and Minister for Cyber Security may launch to further build awareness of the Essential Eight and continue to reinforce the need for ongoing cyber vigilance.

"At the same time, we also look forward to further supporting New Zealand enterprises to keep information safe and secure and continue to observe CERT NZ guidelines."

The Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange platform is IRAP assessed to Protected.

Zscaler public sector customers in Australia include Commonwealth Superannuation Corporation, Commonwealth Grants Commission, and Cenitex.

Commonwealth Superannuation Corporation technology division senior network operations administrator John Pratezina said "Our organisation recently went live successfully with Zscaler Internet Access and Zscaler Private Access which is supporting our employees with a complete, secure, stack as a service from the cloud.

"Zscaler's investment in onshore data centre infrastructure here in Australia provides certainty and the company's focus on serving the needs of the Australian public sector ecosystem provides us with confidence that our security requirements will continue to be met in the years ahead."
