Lacework announces availability of Sydney-based data center

SYDNEY – Cloud security company Lacework has announced the availability of its new cloud data center in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.

Lacework said the data center will allow them to better support organizations in Australia and New Zealand with lower latencies and better customer service while maintaining data sovereignty and privacy requirements. Existing customers, such as secure payment provider IPSI, have been welcoming of the change, Lacework said.

"IPSI operates in the compliance space so data sovereignty is vital for us and our customers, who have requirements that include keeping data onshore. With that in mind we couldn't even consider a security monitoring tool that didn't meet those requirements," said Jarrett Baker, technical operations manager at IPSI. "Beyond our compliance needs, Lacework offers the most mature and fit for purpose product suite we reviewed and having the tool in place has reduced the time spent reviewing traffic from one to two hours per day to less than ten minutes."

Since the Sydney data center uses the same architecture as the rest of Lacework’s global infrastructure, innovations and feature roll outs will occur on a global schedule. "The Australia and New Zealand region continues to be a critical market for Lacework and this investment demonstrates our commitment to supporting local customers at the highest level," noted Richard Davies, area director at Lacework. "With so many organizations in Australia/New Zealand rapidly moving workloads to the cloud, we're helping to ensure they're better prepared to protect themselves and their data."
