April 4, 2019
IIJ Global Solutions Singapore Pte. Ltd.
TOKYO-April 4, 2019-Internet Initiative Japan Inc. (IIJ, NASDAQ: IIJI, TSE1: 3774), one of Japan's leading Internet access and comprehensive network solutions providers, and its Singapore-based, 100% owned subsidiary IIJ Global Solutions Singapore Pte. Ltd. (IIJ GS Singapore)-provider of WAN services for corporate clients-today announced that the latter has entered into an international distribution agreement with MOTEX Inc. (Motex) for the licensed sales of its IT asset management tool, LanScope Cat, in the Asia-Pacific Region.
LanScope Cat is a comprehensive security software package that provides IT asset management, internal information leak prevention, malware protection, and other functions needed for endpoint systems. The software automatically collects information from the devices on which its agent is installed and optimally manages hardware information, software license data, file distribution, and other data stored on endpoint systems. It also allows system administrators to enable user controls for manipulating files, browsing the web, logging email transmissions, using personal USB devices, and otherwise preventing internal fraud. LanScope Cat can also link with Cylance's AI engine to counter external threats, with functions that include malware detection, quarantine, and threat path tracking.
IIJ GS Singapore will launch "LanScope Cat on GIO," a SaaS platform that uses this software, on its cloud service IIJ GIO Singapore Service on April 30, 2019.
LanScope Cat on GIO will offer LanScope Cat as a SaaS to provide IIJ GIO Singapore Service users with IT asset management, internal fraud prevention, and external threat protection functions on client PCs they own.
The Service will include cloud-based LanScope Cat administrative servers just for IIJ GS Singapore users, so these users will not need to install or maintain anything themselves, allowing them to keep initial expenditures and operating costs down. By installing the LanScope Cat integrated console on system administrators' PCs, user companies can create and edit rules and policies for managing client PCs on their networks.
