Lacework has announced the availability of its new cloud data centre located in Sydney, NSW. The data centre allows Lacework to better support A/NZ organisations with an improved customer experience and low latency, while maintaining data sovereignty and privacy requirements.
Customers in A/NZ, such as financial services business etika and secure payment provider IPSI, have welcomed the move, stating:
“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,” says 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.”
Kevin Tham, CISO at etika, explains he’s long been an advocate of Lacework: “I’ve worked with Lacework in two of my roles and while it has big claims, it really does deliver what it promises. The local data centre will improve responsiveness of the site which will lead to overall productivity gains across my team.”
The Sydney data centre uses the same architecture as the rest of Lacework’s global infrastructure, so innovations and new features will be available 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,” says Richard Davies, Area Director at Lacework. “With so many organizations in A/NZ rapidly moving workloads to the cloud, we’re helping to ensure they’re better prepared to protect themselves and their data.”
