Trusteer, a Boston company that sells cybercrime prevention software, said on Thursday that it has established operations in Japan to meet growing demand among financial institutions and enterprises for its fraud prevention and protection products.
The company also appointed Norio Miyazawa as Country Manager for Trusteer Japan. Miyazawa, who has more than ten years of financial and fraud prevention solution experience with Actimize Japan, SuperDerivatives Japan, and Algorithmics Japan, will head up the company’s Japanese operations.
“Financial institutions and enterprises in Japan are faced with the same malware attacks and account takeover threats as their counterparts in the rest of the world and are looking for effective ways to prevent cyber fraud, corporate data theft and advanced persistent threat attacks,” said Rakesh K. Loonkar, president of Trusteer. “Trusteer is committed to meeting the needs of Japanese financial institutions and enterprises. Norio Miyazawa has the experience and relationships to help us grow our business in this important market.”
