Founded in April 2012, Oper8 Global embarked on its journey as a pioneering force in the world of data security infrastructure. With its origins in Brisbane, Australia, the company has been consistently focused on serving businesses worldwide with their data centre, cybersecurity, and professional service needs.

Celebrating a decade of industry-leading service in 2022, Oper8 Global has held steadfast to its core principle of providing superior data security infrastructure solutions. By doing so, the company has freed its clients to focus their energies on their own specialisations, free from the distractions of managing their own data security needs.

A key milestone in Oper8 Global’s journey was the establishment of an office in Oxford, UK in November 2019. This strategic move was designed to expand the company’s reach across the EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) region and marked the beginning of Oper8 Global’s transformation into a truly global entity.

Not limiting itself to these key locations, Oper8 Global exports its robust solutions across the Pacific and New Zealand from its APAC head office. This strong performance led the company to be named as a finalist in the Queensland Export Awards in 2021 and 2022, in two categories. These commendations speak volumes about the company’s commitment to quality and consistent high growth.

The company’s dedication to building robust partnerships also stands as a testament to its success. Oper8 Global’s partner network includes reseller partners across the Paciifc, the UK, Paraguay, and Poland. Further pushing the boundaries, the company is currently negotiating new partnerships in Dubai and Fiji, a clear sign of its ambitious vision for expansion.

The company’s future-oriented strategy, customer-focused approach, and commitment to excellence have been key drivers in its success story. The ability to adapt to changing business landscapes while keeping data security at the core of its operations has established Oper8 Global as a trusted name in the industry.

As Oper8 Global continues its journey, the company holds a strong position to explore new frontiers in the ever-evolving world of data security, continuously proving its worth as a provider of exceptional data security infrastructure solutions
