This time, in order to further strengthen overseas business development, Cyber Security Cloud entered into a sales agency agreement in the US with Serverworks, a cloud integrator with a leading track record of introducing AWS in Japan, that has been expanding its services in California, a concentration of IT companies since 2017. Cyber Security Cloud and ServerWorks have already concluded a distributor agreement in Japan since October 2018, and with the existing track record and the promising performance of WafCharm overseas, this agreement was concluded.
"With this agreement as a foothold, we are looking forward to continue to promote further business expansion of the two companies in the United States", said Hikaru Ohno, President and CEO of Cyber Security Cloud.
