Wiz enables cloud security outcomes for cloud builders and defenders, from code to cloud to defense. 

Wiz is excited to announce the opening of our new data center in Dubai, UAE. Organizations in the region can now benefit from Wiz's cloud security platform in closer proximity to their operations while maintaining any data sovereignty and privacy requirements.

Key highlights of the data center: 

  • The data center is built on the highly available and scalable architectural design of Wiz's global infrastructure.  

  • Customers can keep all their data in the data center and maintain 100% regional data sovereignty.

  • All Wiz innovations and features will be available to customers on the same schedule globally.  

  • The new data center is now operational and available to regional customers. 

Wiz's investment in the region is driven by strong customer growth and momentum in the MEA region, featuring major brands like MBC and Emirates NBD. Global companies and organizations are rapidly shifting their business operations to the public cloud, recognizing its ability to drive innovation, increase revenues, and enable innovative new business models. McKinsey's analysis of 700+ public cloud use cases across 600 companies and the public sector in the Middle East indicates a potential value of up to $183 billion by 2030, about 6% of the region’s current GDP. 

Do you want complete visibility across all your workloads on AWS, Azure, GCP, and OCI? Are you looking for an intuitive, easy-to-use GUI?
