US-headquartered security services provider Arctic Wolf has established a European security operations centre (SOC) in Frankfurt, Germany, a move that will make it easier for service providers and enterprises to meet their local data compliance needs.

Arctic Wolf says it has 2,000 customers globally, and they now have greater flexibility in how they store and access their native security data.

The Arctic Wolf Security Operations Cloud is said to currently analyse over 1.6 trillion security events and 1.3 petabytes of data each week, generated from over 1m licensed users. And some organisations need that data stored much closer to them, to help comply with the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), for instance.

Arctic Wolf uses Amazon Web Services public cloud infrastructure to support its Security Operations Cloud across the US, Canada and Germany, running five SOCs located in North America and Europe and also supporting a growing global team of remote security analysts.

“Our new global footprint now makes it easier than ever for organisations to have full control over where their native security solution data is stored,” said Nick Schneider, president and chief executive officer of Arctic Wolf.

The company went channel-only last year, and says it has seen 300%-plus growth in partner numbers since then. It reports it has doubled its sales for eight consecutive years, and says it achieved a $4.3 billion valuation following a $150 million Series F funding round this July.

Deutsche Telekom Capital Partners was an early investor in Arctic Wolf and continues to back the company in its global expansion.
