Sophos, a company working in cybersecurity, has announced that its new data centre in Mumbai is now open. The Sophos data centre provides local capacity to address the growing demand for Sophos Central, the cloud management platform that supports Sophos’ portfolio of advanced, next-generation cybersecurity products. The data centre also provides private and public organisations of any size with the ability to store, manage and access data in-country, allowing them to meet local data sovereignty regulations.


The initial products and services in the portfolio with access to the new data centre include Extended Detection and Response (XDR), Intercept X, Intercept X for Server, Encryption, and Managed Threat Response services.

The Sophos' Indian data centre is hosted by Amazon Web Services in Mumbai and is Sophos’ third data centre in the Asia Pacific and Japan region. The other two locations are in Australia and Japan.

“With massive digital transformation due to accelerated cloud adoption, many Indian organisations want to store their data in the country to meet data sovereignty requirements,” said Sunil Sharma, MD, Sales for India and SAARC, Sophos. “The local data centre enables the company to address the business issues that impact cybersecurity buying decisions of these organisations. This will make it as easy as possible for customers and partners to access the best threat protection and detection and data storage options available from the company.”


Rolling out these new data centres serves two main purposes.

First - It shows that the company is growing. What began almost a decade ago as a humble but innovative cloud-based platform to manage endpoints and servers has evolved into an intelligent, data-filled command centre for just about any computing asset a business would need to protect.

According to the company's Datacentre website, they have got more products, customers and actionable data than ever before, so this additional infrastructure provides the capacity we’ll need to continue to grow into the future.


Second - The company recognises  the importance of providing organisations of all sizes, in all sectors – public or private – with the flexibility of being able to store, manage, and access Central data locally from in-country data centres.
