New local Smartsheet Region announced

Smartsheet has announced its newest Smartsheet Region in Australia, with build-out to commence in 2024. The company says the move will strengthen its commitment to a growing list of Asia-Pacific-Japan (APJ) customers, such as Fox Sports Australia, University of Adelaide, Western Australian Mental Health Commission and Wine Australia.

Smartsheet Regions are instances of Smartsheet located in geographic areas around the world that enable customers to comply with data residency requirements, giving organisations the flexibility to pick where they want their content to be hosted and processed. The newest addition will serve both new and existing customers across APJ and will operate in multiple locations to provide redundancy, allowing for enterprise-grade availability and scale. Other regions include the EU, US and FedGov, which supports Smartsheet Gov customers.

“Our rapid customer growth across APJ, which includes our recent expansion into Japan, has been the catalyst for today’s announcement of our newest Smartsheet Region in Australia,” said Nigel Mendonca, vice president and GM, APJ.

“We’re thrilled about what this means for our customers in Australia as well as our APJ and global customers that have significant operations in this part of the world.”

Smartsheet supports compliance frameworks across a number of regulated industries and regulatory standards, including ISO, FedRAMP, HIPAA, DOD IL4, ITAR and more. The company will be pursuing Infosec Registered Assessors Program (IRAP) certification for the APJ region, ensuring that it will have the right policies and security controls to meet Australian Government Information Security Manual requirements. This, paired with the platform’s best-in-class, enterprise-grade security and governance measures, allows Smartsheet to serve a growing customer base, including organisations and agencies with the most demanding governance and regulatory requirements.

“We are incredibly excited by this news; Atturra has always maintained a strong sovereign presence and capability of delivering strategic projects across local, state and federal government bodies,” said Iain Elliott, chief technology officer, Atturra, Smartsheet Platinum Partner.

“The new regional deployment presents a massive opportunity to take our award-winning Smartsheet services and solutions to all our clients that have regulatory requirements to ensure their data is onshore, secure and compliant.”
