Keeper Security expands global reach with APAC HQ in Japan

The newly established team will accelerate Keeper’s growth as an industry innovator in enterprise password management, secrets management, privileged connection management and privileged access management with its unified cybersecurity platform.

Keeper Security, the leading provider of zero-trust and zero-knowledge cybersecurity software, announced its expansion into the Asia Pacific (APAC) market with the opening of its regional headquarters in Tokyo. The move strengthens Keeper’s position to meet the rising demand for fortified cybersecurity strategies from customers across Asia, Australia, and New Zealand. The newly established team will accelerate Keeper’s growth as an industry innovator in enterprise password management, secrets management, privileged connection management and privileged access management with its unified cybersecurity platform.

Kazukuni Kuroda, a veteran in the IT and channel sector is leading sales activities for Keeper in Japan and across the APAC market. With proven success and track record having worked with companies like Lucent, Acme Packet, and Oracle, Kuroda will have oversight of relationships with key customers, distribution partners and systems integrators. The APAC organisation is comprised of sales, marketing, customer success, support, and administrative personnel.

“There are over 130 million small-to-medium sized businesses and home offices in the APAC region which are key targets for cybercriminal organisations. Given the rapid increase in cyberattacks and variants in attack vectors, it is essential to protect organisations of all sizes, across every industry sector,” said Darren Guccione, CEO and Co-founder of Keeper Security. “The launch of our Tokyo-based headquarters was the culmination of several years of planning.  We are excited to provide powerful cybersecurity software that is both cost-effective and easy-to-use to millions of organisations in this region.”

Keeper is building a robust partner ecosystem, having signed an agreement with one of Japan’s largest distributors, Daiwabo Information Systems (DIS), and is in ongoing partnership talks with established distributors and resellers across the region.

“Complementing the exciting news of our Japan office opening, Keeper continues to expand our zero-trust, zero-knowledge, privileged access message across the whole of Asia, Australia, and New Zealand. Our primary go-to-market route in these territories, as part of our wider channel-first strategy, is with our distributors and resellers that are on the ground in their respective countries to locally support our prospects and customers. In alignment with our focused strategy of targeted partner recruitment, enablement, and channel empowerment, we already have partners in Singapore, Japan, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, Australia and New Zealand,” said John Andrews, VP of Global Channel for Keeper Security.

This announcement follows last week’s news that global growth equity firm Summit Partners completed a significant, strategic private equity investment in Keeper. The synergy between Keeper, Summit and existing investor Insight Partners will further accelerate product innovation and catalyse strategic expansion of the company’s prominence as a cybersecurity leader around the world. Keeper’s global locations now include US (Chicago, IL and El Dorado Hills, CA), Ireland (Cork), Japan (Tokyo) and the Philippines (Cebu) with cloud data centres in the US, Canada, Europe, Australia, and Japan.
