Together with our local partner DIT, SSH Communications Security participated in one of the biggest IT exhibitions in Japan: Interop Tokyo. With close to 140,000 visitors in 3 days, DIT and SSH’s joint booth managed to attract attention from many of these visitors, especially with the new version of our CryptoAuditor, a network-based virtual appliance that has the capability to control, monitor and audit encrypted administrator sessions, as well as file transfers.
Many local Japanese representatives of major enterprises were actually fascinated by CryptoAuditor’s ability to monitor encrypted traffic without disrupting the existing business systems.
There are also many large enterprises in Japan using various versions of Secure Shell that have started to realize the problems that arise with SSH key management.
With the increased interest in both of our major solutions for SSH key management and monitoring encrypted traffic, we have decided to open a new office in Tokyo, Japan. We recognize the strategic importance of Japan in today’s global IT security market, and the office will focus on supporting sales and service operations for current partners and distributors. Also, earlier this year, we announced a new business alliance and distributor agreement with Fujitsu SSL.
We encourage all our current Japanese customers, business partners, and anyone interested in our solution in Japan to get in direct contact with us!
