SentinelOne Launches Singaporean Data Center
Local data center paves way to the cloud for financial services providers, governments, and critical infrastructure companies
SINGAPORE – Sep 26, 2022 – SentinelOne (NYSE: S), an autonomous cybersecurity platform company, today announced the launch of its new data center in Singapore. The deployment of the new data center will aid Singaporean businesses and government agencies in their overall data protection and regulatory compliance efforts.
Highly regulated industries, including financial services providers, government agencies, and critical infrastructure companies, protect customer data by storing the information on servers located in Singapore. SentinelOne’s data center deployment provides a path to the cloud for these industries, allowing them to benefit locally from protecting SentinelOne’s market-leading cybersecurity.
Leveraging the cloud is critical for organizations looking to improve their security posture. From a product perspective, cloud solutions are faster and easier to deploy and manage. “The Singapore data center is a big step toward upgrading the security posture of Singaporean enterprises while helping to achieve compliance with data protection laws,” said Raj Rajamani, Chief Product Officer at SentinelOne. “The cloud enables best-in-class protection and unprecedented scale, enabling customers to quickly deploy and standardize on Singularity XDR.”
This data center comes at an essential time for Singapore. In 2021, over 65% of Singaporean organizations were hit with ransomware, up from just 25% in 2020. The ransom has risen as well. Organizations that had their data encrypted by attackers paid an average of US$1.16M in 2021, six times higher than the US$187,500 average in 2020. These increases demonstrate the need Singaporean organizations have for modernizing their cybersecurity.
The hyperscale data center, built on the AWS platform, protects against cyberattacks with investments in preventing impact from power failures, natural disasters, and break-ins far beyond those of most individual organizations.
SentinelOne’s cybersecurity solution encompasses AI-powered prevention, detection, response and hunting across endpoints, containers, cloud workloads, and IoT devices in a single autonomous platform.
