Clavister Establishes Italian Subsidiary to Secure Growth

ÖRNSKÖLDSVIK, SWEDEN. 2018-06-26

Clavister, a leader in high-performance network security solutions, today announces the establishment of a new subsidiary in Italy in order to further strengthen the position of the company as one of the leading European cybersecurity suppliers. The establishment is in line with Clavister’s growth strategy where the company will expand into geographical markets that have proven themselves to have a potential for commercial success.

"We have large, key customers in Italy like Danieli Group, CASPUR and others as well as a very active channel business. We feel that the timing is right to establish a Clavister subsidiary that will enable us to drive our next phase of growth in Italy,” John Vestberg, President and CEO of Clavister, notes of the plan.

Andreas Åsander, Vice President of Enterprise Sales, concurs noting that the Clavister’s technology has been especially well received by Italian customers. “We have a number of customers that have deployed Clavister products in innovative and very practical ways. One of our government customers, a large school system in the North of Italy, deploys Clavister to allow teachers to allow or block WiFi access within the classroom. Or some of our industrial customers are using our VPN features for their industrial IoT requirements. It’s an incredibly rich market that we can take our solutions to as well as attract new partners operating in the Managed Security Service space,” Åsander states of the business opportunities in Italy.
