0 28

Sophos, on Tuesday, announced that the company is planning to open new data centers in India and Brazil. The new data center will be established in Mumbai in March and in São Paulo in May. 

The global IT security firm is taking this step to enable organizations in these regions to meet strict data sovereignty laws and regulations, which are increasingly required for those in banking, government and other tightly regulated market sectors. 

It is expected that the new data centers would expand Sophos’ existing base of data centers around the world in the U.S., Canada, Ireland, Germany, Japan, and Australia.

“As a global cybersecurity leader, 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. 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. As organizations advance technically with cybersecurity, they should know their vendor and solutions provider take regulations in their region seriously.”

The new Sophos data centers in India and Brazil would also provide organizations across all industries with the ability to store, manage and access data locally from the company’s cloud management platform, Sophos Central. 

“The data center in Mumbai would help Indian organizations accelerate digital transformation and cloud migration.”

Sunil Sharma, managing director of sales for India and SAARC, Sophos

Sunil added, ‘India is one of the 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 center would enable Sophos to further build its leadership presence in the region by providing local data sovereignty and security solutions.’

Sophos is also focused on Brazil, which might be a useful resource for local businesses as well as Latin American and other international firms looking to do business there.

“Sophos is planning to answer a critical market need for data sovereignty solutions in Brazil, which has strict regulatory requirements.”

Oscar Chavez-Arrieta, vice president, Latin America

Oscar added, ‘Sophos is experiencing tremendous demand and growth momentum in Brazil and across Latin America, and significant investments are planned to expand and comprehensively address regional data regulations, including the Brazilian General Data Protection Law (LGPD) and Complementary Standard NC-14 regulations. These investments would not only enable organizations to house data in-region to meet compliance, but they would also add capacity for future growth.’
