LogicMonitor strengthens local regional presence
Cloud-based infrastructure monitoring platform LogicMonitor has launched its first Australian data centre, located in Sydney and locally hosted by AWS. The launch will support ongoing growth in the Australian market while assisting with compliance measures needed for the financial and public sector spaces.
The company says housing regional customer data locally will improve speeds and deliver a better overall customer experience.
“Our customers in Australia are eager for effective observability platforms that contribute to strong business results, and now we’re here to deliver on this at a local level,” said Richard Gerdis, Vice President and General Manager at LogicMonitor.
“We’re pleased to be able to fulfil our customer needs in the region while adhering to strong compliance and data sovereignty policies. The set-up of a local LogicMonitor environment shows we’re a serious player in the market, especially at a time when Australia aims to assert itself as a leader across several key industries on a global level. LogicMonitor’s local data centre capabilities will prove to be critical in staying competitive,” he said.
Clients include cloud solutions provider AC3, which has been securing and managing most of the NSW Government agencies’ clouds, as well as over 700 companies in Australia and New Zealand, for the last 20 years.
“The number of reported data breaches continues to rise, and although new regulations are also on the rise to combat the changing landscape to protect businesses and citizens, it can be hard for governments and enterprises to keep up by themselves,” said James Mollison, Head of Hybrid Cloud at AC3.
“In today’s hybrid cloud world, a connected approach to security and governance strategies is a top priority. We view our expertise, along with LogicMonitor’s technology and its new local data centre, as key to helping make our customers’ cloud environments even more secure, in addition to giving flexibility to meet data sovereignty and compliance requirements. Lastly, for Australian businesses, having a local presence has clear benefits in terms of the technology and lower latency time, but it also shows commitment from LogicMonitor by investing in our local industry.”
The new data centre comes after the opening of a new Melbourne office in August of this year, highlighting a strong focus for LogicMonitor within the Australian market.
