Identity defined security company, Ping Identity, has launched a new datacentre in Asia-Pacific in an attempt to meet the growing demand of local enterprise and government customers for Cloud-based identity solutions across the region.
This new facility, which is housed in Australia, adds to existing Ping Identity datacenters in the US and Germany.
Hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS), the new datacentre lets customers leverage PingOne Cloud, a key component of the Ping Identity Platform. PingOne Cloud delivers access to all of the SaaS, legacy and custom Web applications needs with full security, and enables organisations to isolate their personally identifiable information (PII) in specific regions.
Ping Identity CEO and founder, Andre Durand, said the demand for solutions for partners, customers and employee workforce identities continues to grow as more enterprises embrace the Cloud, mobile and API economy.
“Key to our strategy of growing a global business is to enable customers to execute their identity and security strategies without barriers, and having data in-region satisfies regulatory requirements and preference for many customers,” he said.
Durand also said the new datacentre in Australia expands its corporate presence within the Asia-Pacific region.“We are thrilled to demonstrate our commitment to the Asia-Pacific region, with new services, strategic investments in hiring and continued momentum in our partner ecosystem. We have put the pieces in place for long-term growth,” he added.
