Security vendor Sophos plans to open a data centre in Sydney in August.

In order to provide additional regional capacity for the Sophos Central cloud platform for its security products, Sophos says it will open new data centres in Montreal in July, in Sydney in August, and in Tokyo in September.

They will add to the existing capacity in the United States, Ireland and Germany.

The move will give more customers the opportunity to use an in-country data centre to store, manage and access Sophos Central data.

"As a global leader in cybersecurity, Sophos understands the growing need to provide solutions to data sovereignty for organisations with strict national or local regulatory or policy requirements," said Sophos APJ regional vice president Gavin Struthers.

"Additionally, with the fast and massive migration to cloud computing, some organisations simply want to store their data in a specific geographical location.

"With a planned data centre in Australia, Sophos would be able to address these critical business issues, both of which impact Australian cybersecurity buying decisions.

"With cyberattacks like ransomware now more complex and costly, organisations need to prioritise innovative cybersecurity products and services that are intuitive and operate from a single, integrated cloud management console. We want to make it as easy as possible for organisations and channel partners to align with Sophos for the world's best threat protection and detection and data storage options."
