Palo Alto Networks unveils new Singapore cloud location

Palo Alto Networks, a global cybersecurity leader, has unveiled a new cloud location in Singapore.

The new launch will give organisations based in Singapore and the wider Asia Pacific and Japan region high-performance access to their cybersecurity solutions.

“The current economic climate has accelerated organisations’ shift to the cloud,” said Simon Green, the president of Japan and Asia Pacific for Palo Alto Networks.

The cybersecurity giant has identified a large customer base in Asia Pacific and Japan who are looking for a comprehensive security platform to protect their cloud workloads. This is particularly important, as cyberthreats are increasing, especially during the pandemic.

The new cloud location in Singapore will provide access to Palo Alto Networks Prisma Cloud, Cortex XDR and Cortex™ Data Lake as well as the readily available WildFire Cloud, which was launched in 2017.

“Prisma and Cortex, which are cloud-hosted, address this need by providing unparalleled visibility and all-encompassing threat protection for customers who migrate workloads to the cloud,” added Mr. Green.

The cybersecurity solutions will allow users to store their data locally in Singapore to abide by data residency requirements. Palo Alto Networks saw the need to introduce this new cloud location to address data sovereignty and privacy demands in Singapore.

“The new cloud location will support the Singapore Government’s stated cloud strategy to host most of its IT solutions on commercial clouds,” Mr. Green said.

Palo Alto Networks also chose Singapore not only because they have their regional headquarters there, but the country has a mature cloud market and reliable IT infrastructure compared to the rest of the region, as seen in the recent Asia Cloud Computing Association Cloud Readiness Index.
