DeviceLock Leads Device Control Software Market in Japan for the Fifth Consecutive Year

November 6, 2019

SAN RAMON, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 6, 2019--

DeviceLock, Inc., a worldwide leader in endpoint data leak prevention (DLP) software, today announced that the “DeviceLock Lite” OEM version of its DeviceLock DLP software continues to be the most widely used endpoint device/port control software on the Japanese market for the fifth consecutive year.

The latest edition of the annual survey “Current Status and Future Outlook of Cyber Security Solutions Market 2019” conducted by an independent market research organization MIC Research Institute Ltd. has named DeviceLock Lite the winner of the “External Device Control Software” category with a 38.9% share of this market thus confirming the dominant position of DeviceLock on the Japanese market for the fifth consecutive year since 2015.

In addition to being distributed on the Japanese market by Runexy Co., Ltd. – a DeviceLock first-tier partner, DeviceLock Lite localized and fine-tuned to the specific requirements of the national market is shipped pre-installed on NEC-manufactured Business PCs to prevent data leakage from the computers and provide end users with a secure PC environment out-of-the-box.

One of the main reasons why Japanese corporate customers have chosen DeviceLock software is its use as an effective mean to comply with national and industry IT security standards, as well as international personal data protection regulations, such as the EU GDPR and PCI DSS.

“We are proud to have our product leading the Japanese device control market for the last five years in a row,” said Ashot Oganesyan, founder and CTO, DeviceLock. “The year-to-year sales of DeviceLock software in Japan in Q1 2019 grew by 28 percent in comparison with Q1 2018. At the same time, not less important, is that in 2019 DeviceLock was chosen by many organizations in Japan for data leak prevention in teleworking scenarios with remote physical computers, as well as remote virtualization solutions based on thin terminals and BYOD devices. In these scenarios, we see a fast-growing demand for protecting network communications including email, instant messaging, cloud file sharing, and other web services – all what is efficiently controlled by NetworkLock™, another component of our DLP solution.”

The DeviceLock DLP solution addresses the needs of organizations that require a simple and affordable approach to preventing data leaks from corporate Windows and Mac laptops, desktop computers, and virtualized Windows sessions and applications. DeviceLock DLP implements and effectively coordinates a full-featured set of contextual and content-aware controls over data-in-use, data-in-motion, and data-at-rest that is designed specifically for preventing information leaks from endpoints without interrupting normal business processes.

The DeviceLock DLP solution is designed to effortlessly scale from small to large installations and to simplify DLP deployment and management such that it can usually be performed by in-house Windows administrators using the Microsoft Active Directory’s Group Policy Management Console or DeviceLock’s companion consoles. The complete package delivers an unprecedented level of functionality among endpoint DLP solutions in an easily affordable price range.
