Network security provider and major reseller to exhibit Next-Generation Firewall appliances at country’s largest IT security event.


Canon IT Solutions Inc., a core company of the Canon Marketing Japan (Canon MJ) group is set to showcase Clavister’s high performance network security solutions at IST, Japan’s largest information security exhibition.

Canon IT Solutions will demonstrate two Clavister products at the exhibition: the E80, the W30 and W20 Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) appliances, which deliver enterprise-grade network security to branch and smaller offices. Canon ITS first partnered with Clavister in 2015, incorporating Clavister’s solutions into its own portfolio of security products, to help it build on its significant Japanese market share for security appliance sales.

Part of Japan IT Week, the country’s largest IT show, IST is a key event for risk and security management professionals and those who work in information systems, corporate planning, audit and legal affairs. Japan’s IT security market is the second largest in the world, forecast to grow from $4 billion to $10 billion by 2020.

“IST is the leading information security event in Japan, so it is a high-profile platform to showcase  our partnership with Canon ITS and our world-leading security,” said Jim Carlsson  CEO at Clavister, “We have enjoyed a great start to our partnership with Canon ITS, developing a healthy pipeline of sales activity, and we are encouraged by the early successes in the Japanese market, which we see as an important one for our future growth strategy. We fully expect to see this interest grow as we continue to invest in marketing with Canon ITS and receive more exposure to the market at events such as ITS.”  

Earlier this year the companies announced that they had made significant progress in the Japanese IT security market, resulting in an order from Canon ITS, worth 1.9 million SEK for Clavister’s solutions. Canon ITS recently announced its sales partner Startia has also decided to deploy Clavister W20 and E80 appliances to support its GateCare managed security service.  Further orders are in the pipeline as the companies work to earn an increased share of the market in Japan for security appliances, which is worth an estimated $360million.

Canon IT Solutions, is a fully-owned subsidiary of the Canon Marketing Japan group which has over 18,000 employees worldwide and is one of the most influential system integrators and resellers of IT services in the Japanese market.  Canon is rapidly increasing its efforts to consolidate its position as a leading security solution provider.  Clavister’s solutions range from entry level next-generation firewalls (NGFW) in desktop-sized packages, to Virtual Series Gateways that enable the highest levels of throughput, offering six nines (99.9999%) availability for carrier-grade security in the most demanding network environments.
