The data centre follows local customer demand as organisations across Australia increase their adoption of SaaS-based solutions but are required to comply with regulatory or policy-based requirements where data is housed.
The move comes as a part of Trend Micro's global rollout of Trend Micro Cloud One data centres, supporting the organisation’s flagship cloud security services platform for protecting servers, resources, and applications in the cloud.
The move also positions Trend Micro as one of the first security vendors to provide the broadest set of services around cloud security delivered from Australia.
“As Australia leads in rapid cloud adoption, it’s critical that we support this growth through improved compliance, reduced friction, and upheld data sovereignty – all at a local level,” said Ashley Watkins, vice president, Trend Micro ANZ. “The launch of the Trend Micro Cloud One data centre in Sydney will provide simplified cloud security to Australian customers, especially highly regulated industries such as the public sector, and banking and financial services.”
“Trend Micro Cloud One enables customers to gain full visibility into their hybrid or multi-cloud environment, and ensure that the cloud services are configured correctly and are compliant to industry standards,” Watkins said. “It also addresses the most fundamental cloud security requirements of customers, protecting a number of the most used cloud services, such as compute, file storage, containers, serverless functions, virtual private network, and more.”
The data centre also enables Trend Micro's local partner ecosystem to provide greater choice to customers as they look to bolster their hybrid and multi-cloud security.
