With the Government’s Digital India initiative, this new cloud location is a step forward towards a safer and secure tomorrow, while also addressing data residency and privacy needs
On Thursday, Palo Alto Networks, the global cyber-security firm unveiled its new India multi cloud location that will be dedicated to serving local and regional customers. In Palo Alto Networks’ global strategy and commitment to the country, the new location underlines India’s importance.
“Investing in local cloud infrastructure is part of Palo Alto Networks continued commitment to customers around the world, wherever their data resides. India was chosen not only because of the country’s mature cloud market and reliable infrastructure but also for accelerated digital transformation imposed by the pandemic”, said Anil Valluri, regional vice president, India and SAARC at Palo Alto Networks. “With the Government’s Digital India initiative, this new cloud location is a step forward towards a safer and secure tomorrow, while also addressing data residency and privacy needs”, he added.
While addressing data residency and privacy needs that are important among organisations in India, the new data location provides a global, cloud delivered, community-driven approach to aggregated threat analysis.
To benefit from direct, high-performance access to Palo Alto Networks offerings and allow storage of their logs within India, the new location will enable India-based and other regional organisations.
