Clavister builds momentum in Japan’s infosecurity market with Canon IT Solutions

In Blog post by Clavister Blog Staff

Last year we announced our distribution agreement with Canon IT Solutions, part of the Canon Marketing Japan group, one of the largest system integrators and resellers in Japan, to help us grow our presence in the region.

We’re pleased to announce that our partnership with Canon ITS continues to develop strongly, resulting in orders from Canon totalling 5.8MSEK in 2016 for our advanced security solutions.  It’s especially gratifying as Japan is the second-largest infosecurity market outside the USA, and therefore highly competitive.  Our combined success highlights the innovations and advanced features that differentiate Clavister’s solutions, and Canon ITS’ strong level of support and sector knowledge.

Jim Carlsson, Clavister CEO said:  “Although we are still in the initial phase of working with Canon IT Solutions to establish Clavister as one of the major security vendors in Japan, the progress is very encouraging.  We continue to work with Canon to help with training its local partners in Clavister’s solutions and in identifying new sales opportunities, and we look forward with confidence to further growth in Japan.”
