Mumbai: Cybersecurity company Sophos has announced plans for a new data centre in Mumbai in March. Sophos’ new data centre will enable organisations across the country to meet strict data sovereignty laws and regulations.

These data sovereignty norms are increasingly required for those in banking, government and other tightly regulated market sectors. This new addition would expand Sophos’ existing base of data centres around the world in the U.S., Canada, Ireland, Germany, Japan, and Australia.

“The data centre in Mumbai would help Indian organisations accelerate digital transformation and cloud migration,” said Sunil Sharma, MD – Sales, India and SAARC, Sophos.

“India is one of the most important markets for us and we have heavily invested in the country. We already have a large base of our research and development in India, and the data centre would enable Sophos to further build its leadership presence in the region by providing local data sovereignty and security solutions,” added Sharma.
The upcoming infrastructure in India would also provide organisations across all industries with the ability to store, manage and access data locally from Sophos Central – the cloud management platform.

Products and services with access to the new data centre 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.
“Sophos has been at the forefront of helping businesses of all sizes meet regulatory requirements to store data in-country as they rapidly adopt software-as-a-service (SaaS), cloud and hosted services,” said Raja Patel, SVP – Products, Sophos.

“It can be very costly for businesses if they don’t have the proper data controls and compliances in place, and Sophos recognizes the need to accommodate the fast-moving changes in how the world is accessing and storing data,” added Patel.

“As organisations advance technically with cybersecurity, they should know their vendor and solutions provider take regulations in their region seriously,” commented Patel.
