Mandiant's new location means organisations that need in-region infrastructure are able to use the company's Automated Defense tool that is designed to help SOC teams to quickly detect and respond to security threats.
This increases Mandiant's addressable market in Australia.
"I am pleased to be announcing Australia as one of the new cloud-based infrastructure locations for Mandiant, as the business continues to grow and expand its offering globally," said Mandiant ANZ vice president and managing director Louis Tague.
"We are fully committed to the Australian and New Zealand markets and this announcement provides an opportunity for even more local organisations across a number of sectors to quickly detect and respond to incoming security threats."
According to the company, Mandiant Automated Defense reduced more than 54 billion customer alerts down to less than 2,300 prioritised investigations in October 2021, significantly reducing time wasted on chasing false positives.
The Australian infrastructure is one of four new non-US locations announced by Mandiant. The others are in Bahrain, Ireland and Singapore.
