How secure is Jira Software for use in Australia?

My team and I are keen to use Jira Software for project management but have a few concerns about security. Some of our questions are: 

1. Who is the vendor of Jira?

2. Is Jira hosted in Australia, and if not, how can I host it in Australia?

3. Is Jira administered by foreign nationals?

4. What is the connection to the cloud services provider (Amazon Web Services?)?

5. Has it been hardened using vendor, Australian Signals Directorate or other advice, guidance or templates?

Hi @Jen

This will be a good read I think:

This covers Cloud and Data Center - there is a Server option also where you can host Jira locally within your organisation.

There are Atlassian Partner that can help setup and administer Jira on your behalf - or your company could purchase it directly and self-service, its up to you! See more about Atlassian partners in your locale here:

Hey Jen - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

I think you will find that Jira meets all of your criteria - even to the point that they are an Australian company! Granted they also have offices around the world and more than 3,000 employees. 

I also imagine there are other Australian government customers supported by Jira. :-)
