SentinelOne Launches Virtual Data Centre in Australia, Pioneering Cybersecurity Innovations to Empower Local Government Organizations

SentinelOne, a leading provider of autonomous cybersecurity solutions, has unveiled its latest achievement with the establishment of a virtual data centre in Australia. This significant deployment follows the company’s attainment of Protected IRAP status for its cutting-edge Singularity™ XDR platform and aims to support local government agencies and organizations in meeting data sovereignty requirements while fortifying the nation’s cybersecurity defenses.

In collaboration with strategic partner AWS, SentinelOne’s virtual data centre arrives at a critical juncture for Australia, as the Federal Government is revamping its cybersecurity strategy, reinforcing reporting regulations, and overhauling incident response mechanisms to match the ever-evolving threat landscape and bolster the country’s security capabilities.

Jason Duerden, Regional Director, ANZ at SentinelOne, emphasized the importance of equipping government organizations with advanced, intelligence-based solutions to safeguard their systems and information. He stated, “As cyberattacks become more widespread and complex, it is imperative for government organizations to have access to advanced, intelligence-based solutions that enable them to protect their systems and information. At SentinelOne, we understand the unique requirements that local agencies face and provide a unique platform they can use to detect, respond to, and remediate threats in a real-time, compliant way.”

SentinelOne’s Singularity platform offers a unified solution that integrates endpoint protection, cloud security, identity threat detection and response, and data ingestion with analytics through a single console. Powered by a native back end and the industry’s most performant security data lake, the platform stands as the first XDR (Extended Detection and Response) solution in the local market to offer complete data localization and sovereignty. With IRAP accreditation and a Sydney-based AWS Point-of-Presence (PoP) that operates in a completely isolated cluster, independent from other SentinelOne locations, the Singularity platform ensures that data remains within Australian borders.

Duerden further highlighted the capabilities of SentinelOne’s solutions in leveraging emerging technologies, such as generative AI, to protect critical infrastructure and systems of national importance. He affirmed the company’s commitment to ongoing investments and innovations that empower government agencies to proactively prevent threats, mitigate risks, and safeguard the nation’s security while fully complying with the required standards and regulations.
