First Australian data centre for Wiz

Cloud security platform Wiz has launched its first Australian data centre in Sydney. Built on the same scalable architectural design as the company’s global infrastructure, the new location assures Australian clients that data is housed and secured onshore, allowing them to meet sovereignty and privacy requirements.

Wiz said the investment will help the organisation to build its rapidly growing customer portfolio that already includes Linktree, OFX and TechnologyOne. The vendor 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 and SOC 2 to automatically understand their compliance posture and to focus their teams on where to improve.

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 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 and 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.”
