Palo Alto Networks Launches New Cloud Location in Indonesia

Palo Alto Networks, the global cybersecurity leader, announced the launch of its new cloud location in Indonesia. The new cloud location gives Indonesian customers access to the full breadth of Palo Alto Networks security capabilities while helping meet local data residency needs.

In Indonesia, the cloud infrastructure landscape is on an upward trajectory with organizations modernizing their applications and seizing the opportunities of the cloud. At the same time organizations, particularly those in the financial sector, must ensure that the storage of their data aligns with Indonesia’s regulations.

As Indonesian organizations expand and seize the potential of cloud computing, the task of detecting and preventing threats will inevitably become increasingly challenging, demanding more time and resources. According to Palo Alto Networks State of Cloud-Native Security 2024 Report, 98% of organizations store sensitive data across multiple locations — on-premises servers, the public cloud, in SaaS applications with local storage, on private clouds hosted by third parties and endpoints — it is clear that security challenges are high.

“When organizations in Indonesia modernize and move to the cloud, they will face new challenges such as protecting against complex threats and the need to remain compliant with local data protection regulations,” said Adi Rusli, Country Manager, Indonesia, Palo Alto Networks. “Our investment in the new cloud location demonstrates our commitment to securing Indonesia’s digital future. It gives organizations in Indonesia and the region access to our AI-powered cybersecurity platforms while helping them meet their data residency needs.”

The availability of the regionally hosted services is part of Palo Alto Networks’ ongoing commitment to deliver the most complete set of security services locally for Indonesian and regional customers. These services help enable customers in Indonesia to balance data location needs with the ability to detect emerging threats, providing a seamless, streamlined security solution delivered within Indonesia. Customers in Indonesia already benefit from Palo Alto Networks’ local cloud locations with Prisma Access, which secures the hybrid workforce.
