Keeping Australian sovereign data in Australia. We are DTA Certified Strategic. Every NEXTDC facility is sovereign and secure to the highest level of certification under the Commonwealth Government's hosting framework.
Security central to digital strategy

Digital systems, infrastructure and the data they manage are mission critical when it comes to organisational success.

With 39% of organisations experiencing a data breach between 2019-2021, keeping up with security in our multi-cloud world is an evolving challenge. And the threat landscape is continuing to mature in terms of frequency and sophistication of attacks.

Today, our physical and cyber environments have merged, and creating a holistic approach to security risk management in the digital era requires strategic thinking and partnerships.

As pressure continues to rise around data protection, an enhanced security risk management posture is best achieved by partnering strategically with a trusted provider to take on the heavy lifting and get you to your ideal state, faster and safely.
