With an established APAC presence, Keeper is addressing the Asia-Pacific region’s substantial growth in the consumer technology sector and enterprise demands for fortified cybersecurity strategies, including password and privileged access management solutions, to keep customers, data, and systems secure. Keeper’s Japan team consists of management, sales, marketing, customer success, support and administrative personnel. The move continues the company’s growth commitment in the region, following the opening of Keeper’s secure cloud data center in Japan in 2022.
This announcement follows last week’s 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 catalyze strategic expansion of the company’s prominence as a cybersecurity leader around the world.
Keeper’s new Tokyo headquarters builds upon the close collaboration and support of the US and Japanese governments. Keeper worked with the Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO) a government organization that works to promote mutual trade and investment between Japan and the rest of the world. Keeper was also supported by the US Embassy and the International Trade Association, under the US Department of Commerce. Keeper has signed agreements to work through multiple established resellers in the region, with more partnerships to come.
"There are over 130 million small-to-medium sized businesses and home offices in the APAC region which are key targets for cybercriminal organizations. Given the rapid increase in cyberattacks and variants in attack vectors, it is essential to protect organizations 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 organizations in this region."
Keeper was co-founded in Chicago, IL in 2011 by CEO Darren Guccione and CTO Craig Lurey. The company now provides a full suite of award-winning consumer and business offerings in password, secrets and privileged connection management, as well as differentiators that set Keeper apart from its competitors including dark web monitoring, secure file storage, single-sign on integration, compliance reporting and detailed event logging. Keeper’s solutions scale to organizations of all sizes from small home offices to multinational enterprises and the largest public sector organizations.
