The new regional office 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. This expansion follows the opening of its secure cloud data centre in Japan in 2022 and Australia in 2021.
Keeper’s APAC presence will be underpinned by a channel-first approach, having signed agreements with multiple established resellers in the region.
Keeper’s team on the ground in Tokyo consists of management, sales, marketing, customer success, support and administrative personnel, working to fulfil substantial regional consumer and enterprise demand for fortified cybersecurity strategies.
These include password and privileged access management solutions that keep customers, data and systems secure in the face of growing regulatory requirements and an evolving threat landscape.
“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’s new Tokyo headquarters builds upon the close collaboration and support of the Japanese government, working with the Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO) a government organisation that works to promote mutual trade and investment between Japan and the rest of the world.
This announcement follows recent news that global growth equity firm Summit Partners completed a 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.
The grand opening of the APAC headquarters was marked with a ribbon cutting ceremony for Keeper, which is the first and only global password management company to establish APAC headquarters.
