Swiss FTS opens its Singapore datacenter

Corporate investigations firm Swiss FTS is expanding its services in Asia with the launch of a datacenter in Singapore.

A little more than a year after launching its first Asian office in Singapore, Swiss FTS opened its Singaporean datacenter this Thursday. The firm is now able to host data for investigations locally on servers in Singapore.

Swiss FTS, founded in 2010 in Zurich, Switzerland, is a corporate investigations firm.

"We are delighted to extend and offer our award-winning service to our clients in this region, "Mattias Aggeler, founding partner at Swiss FTS, said in a statement.

The infrastructure is located in an independent, highly secure ISO 27001 certified datacenter in Singapore, with full redundancy in order to maximize availability. Service and maintenance is conducted solely by members of the Swiss FTS team to ensure full control over the environment.

"This enables us to host highly sensitive data securely for all our clients in regulated industries, such as financial institutions," Marc Streit, who heads the Singapore office of Swiss FTS, added.

 "Expanding to Asia in 2017 was a logical step for Swiss FTS due to the continuous growth of the region, and Singapore was a natural choice given that it's the commercial center of the region with its well-developed financial and legal sectors," said Rogier Teo, founding partner at Swiss FTS.

Swiss FTS assists some of the world's largest law firms and organizations with eDiscovery and data hosting in complex cases relating to Fraud, Anti-Corruption, Anti-Trust Regulation Breaches, Arbitration and Litigation and other types of investigations.

According to the GIR ( Global Investigations Review ) Swiss FTS has been recognized as one of the leading corporate investigations firms and its partners are named amongst the 50 leading digital forensics specialists by Who's Who Legal.
