SINGAPORE (Reuters) – Zoom Video Communications has opened a new data center in Singapore, its first in Southeast Asia.

The Singapore data center, through which the company’s users in Southeast Asia can connect, brings its total to 18 sites globally.

The company also plans to hire more Singapore employees, including engineers and sales staff, said Abe Smith, Head of International at Zoom.

Security researchers this year discovered that Zoom rerouted some calls through its servers in China, even if those calls were placed outside China.

The company had said that this took place in “extremely limited circumstances” and it had taken its mainland China data centers off an approved list of back-ups for users outside China.
