Today, Micro Focus announced the opening of a new data centre in the United Kingdom. To support the growth of the ITOM customer base, MicroFocus is investing in geography-specific data centres. UK customers can access IT Operations Management (ITOM) software as a service (SaaS) solutions from their local data centre, which complies with local data residency regulations, including data security, privacy, storage, and transfer. For most UK enterprises and public companies, SaaS is the best consumption model for IT solutions. All customers' data are exclusively processed within the UK Micro Focus data centre in compliance with local regulations.

Hundreds of customers use Micro Focus ITOM SaaS solutions, including customers from the education and healthcare verticals, because we offer flexible licensing and reporting, enabling customers to consume what they need when they need it but only pay for what they use. The new UK data centre and network architecture meet the requirements of the most security-sensitive organizations in highly regulated industries and government sectors.

All SaaS solutions are certified to the highest demanding standards:  ISO27001:2013 and ISO27034-1. In addition, there are extensive business continuity plans and disaster recovery plans. As part of Micro Focus' commitment to customer data security and privacy, encryption protocols are in use to prevent unauthorized access to databases, scripts, and data transfer.

Micro Focus ITOM SaaS teams provide a versionless experience to all customers with automatic version currency and patching. The solutions are built on the integrated, AI-based OPTIC platform to restore IT efficiency and performance. Customers' data from the advanced AI-based capabilities always stay within Micro Focus' local data centres. Support personnel provides 24x7 support.
