DocuSign launches Australian data centres
DocuSign has announced the establishment of three data centres in Australia, with their usage to be prioritised for public sector customers.
The centres will offer data residency, data privacy and the potential to build an online, mobile-optimised environment for the 61% of Australians who still transact manually with the government.
The development follows the company recently naming Sydney as the location for its Asia Pacific headquarters.
“The federal government is focused on delivering data accessibility and unmatched privacy to its internal and external stakeholders — and we believe that preparing, sharing, signing and managing agreements is a key part of this,” said Brad Newton, Vice President, DocuSign, who heads the APAC region.
“That’s why we’re looking for our news today to help the government meet community expectations for digital convenience and the key objectives of its Digital Transformation Agency.”
The Digital Transformation Agency’s Secure Cloud Strategy highlights the federal government’s efforts to make it easier for agencies to invest in cloud technologies. Secure onshore data facilities that support the highest level of data privacy will help achieve that goal.
According to DocuSign, the company’s solutions comply with government regulations and frameworks around the world, developed to ensure the privacy and security of personal and sensitive data.
This includes compliance with the Federal Risk and Authorisation Management Program (FedRAMP), a US government-wide program that provides a standardised approach to security assessment, authorisation and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services used by US agencies.
