Sophos, a cyber security solutions provider, announced plans for a new data center in Mumbai, India in March.
The new data center will enable organizations to meet data sovereignty laws and regulations, which are increasingly required for those in banking, government and other tightly regulated market sectors. The new data center would expand Sophos’ existing base of data centers around the world in the U.S., Canada, Ireland, Germany, Japan, and Australia.
“India is one of the most important markets for us and we have heavily invested in the country. We have a large base of our research and development in India, and the data center would enable Sophos to build its leadership presence in the region by providing local data sovereignty and security solutions,” said Sunil Sharma, managing director of sales for India and SAARC, Sophos.
The Sophos data center in India would provide organizations with the ability to store, manage and access data locally from Sophos Central, the cloud management platform that supports Sophos’ portfolio of advanced, next-generation cybersecurity solutions and services.
Products and services with access to the data center would initially include Sophos Extended Detection and Response (XDR), Sophos Intercept X, Intercept X for Server, Sophos Encryption, and Sophos Managed Threat Response services. Other offerings within the Sophos portfolio are planned to be enabled over time.
