ACTON, Mass. & TOKYO -- eIQnetworks®, Inc., a global provider of next-generation security information management (SIM) solutions, and Integrated Systems Technologies (IST), a leading distributor of networking and security solutions in Japan, today announced that IST is marketing and selling a localized version of eIQs award-winning Enterprise Security Analyzer (ESA) SIM solution ESA-J to help Japanese companies cost-effectively implement security operations that comply with J-SOX regulations.
As a result of the Financial Service Agency of Japans recommendation that the securing of systems requires internal and external access management, IST has partnered with eIQ to employ ESA-J as its sole SIM offering. ESA-J, which has been translated into a Japanese user interface, enables companies to ensure compliance by providing auditors with the ability to easily search log archives and access comprehensive reports.
Japanese companies are facing increasingly complex IT security environments and new regulations such as J-SOX, said Hirokazu Ueda, chairman and CEO at Integrated Systems Technologies. We standardized on eIQs ESA because it is the only SIM solution that delivers all of the tools necessary to help our customers and partners meet these challenges.
