Expanding Duo’s International Footprint: New Data Centers Opening in Australia, Singapore and Japan
Organizations of all sizes and types are facing increasingly severe and complex security challenges. For the last ten plus years, we at Duo and Cisco have been on a mission to make it simple for businesses to easily secure access for their workforces and mitigate security risks. Today, I’m proud to announce a major milestone in this long journey.
We’ve expanded our data center presence to include Australia, Singapore and Japan, in addition to our existing presence in the United States, Canada, Ireland and Germany. The new cloud data centers allow Duo to better respond to the needs of our global customers, particularly in the government, financial and insurance industries, where data sovereignty continues to be one of the key requirements.
With compliance requirements putting pressure on customers to ensure that their data is secure, we've seen a large increase in demand for control over where cloud services are hosted. To that end, our data centers and services are ISO27001 and SOC2 compliant and have 99.99% service availability.
The new data centers will support our rapidly growing list of customers based in the region, as well as multinational customers whose workforce is based in various countries around the world.
The launch of the new data centers are part of Duo's international expansion strategy. All functionality from Duo’s zero trust platform including multi-factor authentication (MFA), single sign-on (SSO), VPN-less remote access, device trust and adaptive risk-based policies is available through these new data centers. Moving forward, passwordless authentication and other new features will be available in all of our datacenter locations simultaneously.
In 2022, we aim to launch additional data centers in the UK and India, giving multinational customers even more choice over service delivery location, helping them meet local regulatory requirements. As more companies move their workloads to the cloud and global SaaS regulations constantly evolve, these investments position Duo for the long-term well and ensure parity for our customers regardless of their location.
Several teams from Duo and Cisco worked together to scope, prioritize and deploy these three data centers. The team executed well, despite the pandemic and everything else that’s happened over the last 18 months. Please join me in congratulating the teams and welcoming our new customers in Australia, Singapore and Japan.
Let’s continue to keep our workforces safe online!
