MONITORAPP participated in the IST exhibition at Chiba Makuhari Messe, Japan from November 8th to 10th. IST which is the largest business IT exhibition in Japan, is held once in Osaka, once each in the first half year and the second half year in Tokyo. Beginning in 2010, IST has grown rapidly every year. It is said that there were 640 companies participating in 2017. Sixteen Korean companies has participated in 2016 and forty two Korean companies in 2017.
IST (Information Security Expo Tokyo) 2017 Japan IT Week is not only a security but also an exhibition specialized in IT business such as big data, IoT / M2M, data center, cloud computing, mobile solution and AI. MONITORAPP participated with KTNF in a single booth through cooperation and support of Korea Industrial Complex Corporation.
At MONITORAPP booth, various solutions such as AIWAF, AISVA, AISVA, and AIONCLOUD 2.0 which is just released were introduced. We could see that there was a lot of interest in SSL traffic because there was so many request to explain about AISVA that can encrypt / decrypt SSL traffic at high speed. In Japan, SSL traffic usage is higher than Korea, so we expect that SSL traffic handling problems will become increasingly visible.
The Japanese subsidiary, established by MONITORAPP in 2016, is currently developing an influence on the Japanese IT security market by signing contracts with various partners. MONITORAPP plans to more actively promote AIONCLOUD, which has WAF and SITECHECKER as services. In the first half of next year, we plan to prepare a bigger and more detailed booth, so please look forward to May 2018!
