With the Covid-19 bans and working from home, the video conferencing tool Zoom has seen an increase in usage.
According to Zoom's quarterly earnings release, the company posted revenue growth of 169 percent year over year.
The influx of users through the company comes despite multiple data breaches around the world and recent attention to whether data is being sent to China.
The California-based company worked with the Economic Development Board to set up a new data center in Singapore.
The opening of this new plant will create more engineering and sales jobs to help the company grow in the region.
However, Zoom did not specify how many new employees to hire.
Earlier this year, the Ministry of Education stopped using the video conferencing tool after violating obscene images.
However, the ban didn't last long – schools were allowed to resume using Zoom after introducing "three additional layers of defense" after just a week. More than 400 schools are currently using the platform.
"The COVID-19 crisis has created increased demand for distributed, face-to-face interactions and collaboration with Zoom," Zoom CEO Eric Yuan said in a statement.
"Use cases have grown rapidly as people have incorporated zoom into their work, learning, and personal life."
