Duo launches first data centre in India to provide customers with a choice of service delivery locations
Bengaluru: Cisco owned cloud-based secure access provider Duo has launched its first data centre in India. With this data centre, Duo aims to help customers in India fortify their cyber defences and meet data localization requirements.
The set-up of the data centre is part of Cisco’s investments in building future-ready, data-compliant security infrastructure in India.
Duo launches first data centre
Duo said that the launch of the data centre in Mumbai is a part of its global expansion strategy.
The data centre will enable all functionality from Duo’s zero-trust platform, including multi-factor authentication (MFA), single sign-on (SSO), VPN-less remote access, device trust, and passwordless (in public preview), and adaptive risk-based policies. The local data centre will allow businesses to enhance their performance by improving connection stability.
A recent Cisco survey found that 37% of cybersecurity technologies used by firms in India are considered outdated by their security leaders. Recognizing that the need to improve preparedness has never been greater, nearly nine in 10 Indian companies surveyed are investing in a zero-trust strategy – including passwordless security – to permit better agility, visibility, and control.
“At Cisco, as we catalyze our transition to delivering a majority of our portfolio as a service, we are bringing Duo to more customers to help them not only prevent and respond to breaches but also be certain that their data is held securely within the region,” said Daisy Chittilapilly, President, Cisco India and SAARC.
“The new data centre doubles down on our continued commitment to India and will augment Cisco’s security capabilities to support the rising legion of hybrid businesses across the nation,” added Chittilapilly.
The India data centre is a part of a global network spread across APAC, Europe, and the US. These investments position Duo for long-term success and ensure a consistent and elevated experience regardless of our customers’ locations.
