SYDNEY — VMware vFORUM 2019  — November 19, 2019 –– VMware Carbon Black, a leader in cloud-native endpoint protection, today announced the creation of a data centre in Australia, slated to open in the first half of 2020. The new data centre allows VMware Carbon Black to deliver its cloud-native endpoint protection platform (EPP) to Australian customers, while supporting customers with a range of regulatory and data residency use cases across ANZ.

 

The data centre announcement comes on the heels of VMware’s acquisition of Carbon Black, which closed in October 2019 and prompted the creation of VMware’s Security Business Unit, led by former Carbon Black CEO Patrick Morley, who now serves as VMware Carbon Black’s General Manager.

 

“VMware Carbon Black remains committed to the success and protection for customers in the ANZ region,” said Morley. “We know these customers have specific compliance requirements regarding data sovereignty and want to achieve the strongest form of endpoint and workload protection. We look forward to working closely with ANZ customers, like Australia Post, over the coming years by continuing to innovate and bring intrinsic security to the enterprise.”

 

The new data centre in Australia will support VMware Carbon Black’s cloud-native EPP, built on an extensive, cloud-scalable architecture, which consolidates prevention, detection, response, threat hunting and managed services for endpoints and workloads into a single platform with a single agent and a single console.

 

Signing on to VMware Carbon Black, Australia Post’s Chief Information Officer, John Cox, said this was an important step to protect data in a growingly complex environment.

 

“Australia Post has been trusted for over 200 years to protect our customers and their information. As digital adversaries become more skilled in their techniques and technologies, we need to make sure we stay one step ahead by using advanced methods of defense. We selected VMware Carbon Black to deploy advanced, cloud-based endpoint protection across our entire corporate environment. This means we can protect our data against international threats before they hit Australia, we’ll have greater visibility across the entire environment and the ability to respond quickly to incidents.”
