Endpoint protection vendor VMware Carbon Black is to open an Australian data centre in the first half of 2020.

Recently acquired by VMware, Carbon Black provides a cloud-native endpoint protection platform that covers prevention, detection, response, threat hunting and managed services for endpoints and workloads via a single agent and a single console.

The acquisition resulted in the creation of VMware's security business unit, led by former Carbon Black CEO Patrick Morley, who is now general manager of VMware Carbon Black.

The new data centre will allow the company to provide services to Australian organisations with regulatory or other reasons for keeping their data onshore.

"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."

Australia Post CIO John Cox said "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 defence.

"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."
