Internet Initiative Japan begins online sales channel for Safous

28/04/2022 03:37 PM

KUALA LUMPUR, April 28 (Bernama) -- Internet Initiative Japan Inc (IIJ), one of Japan's leading Internet access and comprehensive network solutions providers, has announced the launch of an online sales channel for Safous, its zero-trust network access (ZTNA) service released last year. 

Until now, IIJ only offered Safous through its group's local offices (in the U.S., Mainland China, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, and Japan). However, the addition of an online sales channel allows customers to apply for services without being tied down by a country or region. 

According to a statement, customers can now start using Safous, with a lead time that can be as short as 30 minutes, by simply selecting the required plan and options on the Safous website.

Safous' Global Service Director, Miki Tanaka said: “We are very pleased to be able to offer this service to our customers. We believe that the addition of Safous' online sales channel as a ready-to-use ZTNA product has the potential to significantly lower the bar for ZTNA adaptation.

“We will further expand the security functions of Safous so that many of our customers can smoothly balance the challenges of COVID-19, such as diversification of work styles and optimisation of IT infrastructure, with the strengthening of security measures.”

 ZTNA is a type of zero-trust solution that provides seamless and secure remote access to internal applications. Instead of authenticating at the boundaries of a corporate network, authentication is performed via a trusted broker system each time an application is accessed.

This service securely connects users to corporate information resources, such as business applications in the customer's office or the cloud. Safous utilises robust authentication and has authorisation control from a user terminal or IoT device.

IIJ has deployed access points (PoP: Point of Presence) for authorisation to customers' specified locations prior to the start of their service. This configuration will eliminate the need to allow users to access corporate networks from outside and mitigates the risk of attacks targeting corporate networks. 

IIJ will continue to actively expand the functions of this service and strengthen its sales system so that customers can balance the optimisation of IT infrastructure in line with the diversification of working styles and the strengthening of security measures smoothly.
