Wiz Launches Its First Australian Data Centre


Wiz has launched its first Australian data centre, located in Sydney, NSW.

The Australian data centre is built on the same highly scalable architectural design of Wiz’s global infrastructure, enabling new innovations and features to become available to Australian customers on a global schedule.

In addition, Wiz is supporting the Australian Cyber Security Centre’s Essential Eight Security Guidelines model as a supported framework. Organisations can use the Essential Eight benchmarking capabilities along with existing support for common industry benchmarks such as CIS Controls, ISO 27001, SOC2 to automatically understand their compliance posture and to focus their teams on where to improve.

“TechnologyOne has partnered with Wiz to enhance our cyber security posture and reinforce our customer commitment to be the most trusted SaaS Platform,” said Daniel Sultana, Executive Vice President – SaaS Platform at TechnologyOne. “We’re delighted to see Wiz’s continued investment in Australia with the announcement of a Sydney data centre and support of the Essential Eight controls.”

This investment displays the company’s commitment to the Australian market—which has seen exponential growth in the past year—as it aims to ensure customers have enough local support and resources required to effectively implement and achieve value with Wiz.

“The new Sydney data centre gives us further confidence in Wiz’s commitment to the market and customers in the Australia region,” said Santanu Lodh, CISO at OFX. “We trust Wiz to help us secure our growing diverse cloud footprint, and this investment will accelerate our adoption of Wiz.”

“The Australian market continues to be a critically important region for Wiz as the pace of innovation and cloud adoption is one of the fastest around the world,” said Assaf Rappaport, Co-founder & CEO at Wiz. “We will continue to invest heavily in the region and be a strategic cloud security partner for local customers seeking to securely accelerate their cloud journeys.”
