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.”

Richard Dornhart, National Security Practice Manager at Data#3, added: “Organisations today must balance limited resources with the relentless pace of market disruption.
