Menlo Park, Calif. – August 25, 2015 – Menlo Security, the only cybersecurity company that eliminates malware from Web and email without the need for endpoint software, today announced a distribution agreement with Macnica Networks, to provide sales and support for Menlo Security’s Isolation Platform, both as a cloud-based (SaaS) offering and for deployment by Japanese enterprises and service providers within their datacenters. This agreement coincides with Menlo Security’s rapid global expansion into Asia and Pacific (APAC), which will continue throughout 2015 and beyond.
Organizations around the world are increasingly concerned about the risks from cyber attacks. An overwhelming majority of attacks – some 90 percent or more – occur when compromised websites deliver malware to their devices through email, Web links or other downloads. In Japan specifically, growth of cloud-based businesses and enterprises during the past few years has driven increased demand for security services. Existing threat prevention technologies, which are based on detecting and blocking malicious content, increasingly fail to stop attacks as malware becomes more sophisticated and effective at evading detection.
“Macnica Networks has a long history of introducing important new technologies to the Japanese market,” said Masahiro Miyabukuro, president, Macnica Networks. “Our partnership with Menlo Security continues our tradition of expanding innovation and will allow us to bring isolation security to our customers, fulfilling an increasing demand for new approaches to preventing cyber attacks.”
The Menlo Security Isolation Platform is rapidly gaining traction as a critical element of the threat prevention architecture. Unlike current prevention systems that attempt to distinguish “good” content from “bad” content, the Menlo Security Platform isolates and executes all Web content in the public or private cloud away from the endpoint. Menlo Security’s Adaptive Clientless Rendering™ technology delivers malware-free rendering information to the user’s device without the need for endpoint software and without any impact on the user’s native experience. This unique, patent-pending approach completely eliminates malware while minimizing the impact on users and IT staff.
“Macnica Networks has established a strong reputation as a leader introducing important security innovations to the Japanese market,” said Amir Ben-Efraim, co-founder and CEO of Menlo Security. “We’re delighted to be partnering with them to help Japanese enterprises and service providers significantly improve their defenses against the rising threat of malware.”
