July 11, 2024; Brisbane, Australia: Leading Australian technology services and solutions provider, Data#3, is proud to announce the ribbon-cutting and launch event of a new state-of-the-art Security Operations Centre (SOC) located at the Data#3 Head Office based in Brisbane.

This new service is powered by SecurityHQ, an esteemed global cyber security company and a renowned international SOC provider, exemplifying the pinnacle of cyber security excellence. Together, SecurityHQ and Data#3 demonstrate a joint commitment to delivering unparalleled security solutions that meet the highest standards of data protection and sovereignty.

Brad Colledge, CEO and Managing Director of Data#3 expressed his enthusiasm for the new facility: "The opening of this SOC marks a significant milestone in our journey to provide unparalleled security services to our customers. Security remains the top priority for business and technology leaders, and with the ever-increasing threat landscape, this facility is another strategic investment towards alleviating the burden on IT teams. It allows them to focus on transformation projects and shaping their digital future."
