15 May 2019

SUNNYVALE, CAMicro Focus (LSE: MCRO; NYSE: MFGP) today announced that it has expanded its global datacenter network with the opening of a data hosting facility in Frankfurt, Germany. The new facility delivers Micro Focus' industry leading Information Archiving solutions to private organizations operating in the EU region enabling them to be better prepared in relation to compliance with regulatory, government and privacy mandates, including GDPR and other data privacy laws through a unified archiving approach.

The new datacenter provides businesses of all sizes the ability to capture and preserve numerous data types, such as email, mobile, social media communication, including attachments, files and transactional data. The data is captured in a way that enables customers to both optimize storage and allow immediate access for eDiscovery.

"The local importance of this facility cannot be overstated," said Ken Muir, Vice President Worldwide Sales, Archiving & Risk Management at Micro Focus. "This center enables a sophisticated security framework for any company operating within the EU region that begins with seeking regulation-driven data storage and ends with actionable insights that drive bottom-line business value."

The Micro Focus global datacenter offers the EU market Information Archiving Software-as-a-Service via their Digital Safe and Retain product portfolio providing a mature solution for organizational data governance, security, discovery and oversight. This unified archiving approach for enterprises offers numerous benefits, including:

  • Highly customizable and managed processing to fit individual customer demands
  • Simplified multi-platform support and deployment along with immediate time to value
  • Flexibility of public cloud or dedicated cloud SaaS offering depending upon organizational needs
  • Enablement for worldwide compliance and security standards

The opening of the German datacenter comes as demand for Micro Focus' Information Archiving solutions is accelerating rapidly in EMEA. Their Digital Safe archiving solution was recently recognized as a Leader in The Radicati Group Information Archiving MQ 2019 for its Functionality and Strategic Vision. In their evaluation, Radicati highlighted that "Digital Safe, in conjunction with its information governance portfolio, can meet the most rigorous compliance requirements of large global enterprises."

Micro Focus now operates two datacenters in Europe. The first is located in the United Kingdom and addresses applicable data regulations.
