Heimdall Networks, a leading provider of Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) detection and mitigation solutions, and Farpoint Ventures LLC, a leading provider of venture finance and international sales and marketing outsourcing services, announced today that they have entered into a three-year agreement to develop the Japan market.

Under the agreement, Farpoint Ventures will act as an extension of Heimdall’s sales and marketing team to recruit and sign distributors, value added resellers and systems integrators to resell the “Heimdall Security Appliance” (HSA) family and integrated “Bifrost Cloud Mitigation” services in Japan. Farpoint will also be responsible for sales engineering support through its Tokyo office.

“Whether purchased as an appliance or a cloud-based protection service, Heimdall Networks gives enterprises and governments 24x7 peace of mind that their networks and critical internet facing applications are protected from DDoS attacks,” said Jim Deleskie, Founder and CTO of Heimdall Networks. “Both HSA and Bifrost are part of an integrated platform that is uniquely purpose-built to detect and mitigate all forms of volumetric and application attacks.”

“Because DDoS attacks are so easy to launch, they have become the preferred weapon of hackers and political groups,” said James Ryan, Managing Partner of Farpoint Ventures LLC. “Heimdall Networks’ purpose-built solutions provide robust protection and scale at a far superior total cost of ownership (TCO) compared to any alternative offering on the market today.”

Heimdall Networks’ CTO Jim Deleskie will be presenting the Heimdall DDoS solution at a seminar in Tokyo on May 30, 2014.
