Asgent: A Trusted Cyber Security Partner
With the rate and intensity of cyberattacks increasing every year, the need for top-notch cyber security solutions has never been greater. Threats to networks are evolving by the day and businesses are running into huge losses as a result of cyberattacks. So how do businesses stay ahead of the ‘bad guys’ in today’s evolving threat environment? The solution lies in finding and deploying the latest cyber security solutions on core networks. Asgent, an industry leader in cyber security services aptly caters to these needs of businesses. The company develops and distributes pioneering network security solutions for large enterprises, government institutions, and educational institutions to help them fight cyber threats and attacks.
Using premium software tools, technology, and technical know-how, Asgent works round the clock to design and develop client-specific cyber security solutions that cater to an enterprise’s security requirements. It takes a holistic approach to cyber security starting with a thorough assessment of a business’ security structure to determine areas of vulnerability and penetration testing, all the way to the monitoring and management of security threats via Managed Security Services (MSS). “Asgent’s total security service menu, comprising a wide range of security services, serves the security needs of large enterprise customers. These services are founded on Asgent’s extensive know-how in the security field, based on many years of real-world experience”, says Takahiro Sugimoto, President and CEO, Asgent.

For the security service, Asgent provides Penetration Testing, Managed Security Services, and Risk Assessment Services based on the ISO 27000 series of standards. The essence of Asgent’s services lies in the utilization of sophisticated machine learning products that make it easy to detect even the smallest of threats.
Asgent also has product based offerings in its portfolio. The company selectively picks products from other firms seeking to penetrate the Japanese market, add technical support, and market the products to the best of its ability.
The products are mainly from startups and Asgent is able to create the best go-to market strategy for the products. With over 100 major Japanese system integrators, Asgent inherits the role of the original product manufacturer and promotes the product in the Japan market which is different from the rest of the world. It also provides technical support to the end users to ensure proper adoption of the technology. A case in point is Check Point, a proprietary firewall product. Sugimoto brought Check Point to Japan when it was relatively new. Following an aggressive marketing campaign, the concentration of firms using Check Point grew tremendously. Asgent now commands more than 50 percent share of Check Point products in the Japanese market.
Another success story is that of Votiro sanitization solutions. Asgent brought Votiro to the Japan market almost two years ago with a proper market penetration strategy and plan. Votiro now has millions of dollars of orders every quarter.
Asgent, over the years, has had many such accomplishments with its service and product based expertise. Technological advancement has always been a key area of concern for Asgent and continues to be. Thus, it strives to retain its competitive edge in the market through enhancing its technological capabilities. Working on the same lines, Asgent plans to include SCADA Security and IoT Security in its solutions and is marching towards making it happen.
