SYDNEY — November 06, 2019 - ManageEngine, the IT management division of Zoho Corporation, today announced that its cloud-based IT management applications are being hosted in two Australian data centres recently launched by its parent company, Zoho. Now, organisations in Australia and New Zealand have access to ManageEngine solutions provided entirely from ISO 27001-certified, SOC 1 Type II, SOC 2 Type II, PCI-DSS compliant data centres in Melbourne and Sydney. The move helps IT teams in the region to migrate operations seamlessly to the cloud while adhering to Australian data privacy laws and security standards.
As cloud adoption continues to grow in Australia and New Zealand, so do related concerns about data security and privacy. In addition to complying with a growing number of data privacy regulations, organisations in the region are increasingly concerned about data sovereignty. Specifically, organisations are cautious about cloud service providers that store their personally identifiable information and other business data outside of the country because that data is then governed by another country’s laws.
"Data sovereignty is non-negotiable for many companies and government organisations considering a move to the cloud," said Rajesh Ganesan, vice president at ManageEngine. "We are committed to meeting the demands of regional customers facing stricter laws concerning data processing and storage. The investments we've made to host ManageEngine services in our local data centres is a big part of that commitment and reflects our long-term plan for the region."
ManageEngine is hosting ITSM, ITOM and endpoint management services from the Melbourne and Sydney data centres, which are collocated in Equinix facilities. Subscription plans are billed in Australian dollars. The Australian data centres are also hosting regional customers' data, including customer data previously hosted in other regions' data centres. Moving forward, the data centres will comply with the requirements of the Australian Signals Directorate.
ManageEngine currently has more than 4,000 Australian customers. With its IT management solutions delivered from the two new Australian data centres, ManageEngine solutions are now hosted in 10 company-owned data centres worldwide, including the United States, Ireland, the Netherlands, India and China. Customers can now choose their preferred data centre when they sign up for ManageEngine's cloud services. All 10 of the data centres are managed and monitored by ManageEngine’s solutions.
