NetMotion Wireless Enters Japanese Market to Support Rapidly Growing Mobile Workforce

Takahiro Narita Named Japan Country Manager, Will Build Japan Market for NetMotion Software

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - Jul 20, 2016) - NetMotion Wireless, the leading provider of mobile performance management, security and traffic optimization software, today announced the company's Japan expansion with the appointment of mobility solutions expert, Takahiro Narita, as Japan Country Manager. Mr. Narita, a Dell veteran, will be responsible for building the Japanese market for NetMotion's software solutions and developing and managing a partner network of top tier distributors and systems integrators.

NetMotion's Mobility software delivers secure connectivity, adaptive policy control, application performance management and network optimization for more than three thousand organizations worldwide. The company's Diagnostics software is the first and only solution of its kind to help IT teams quickly pinpoint root causes of mobile connectivity and wireless networking problems to improve the productivity of mobile users.

With a rapidly growing mobile workforce of nearly 14 million, Japanese businesses invested more than JPY 124.bn (USD 1.2bn) in mobile security solutions as part of workplace transformation initiatives that swept the country beginning in 2014. These technology initiatives placed the country in the world's top three for IT spending on mobility projects.

"Our solutions solve secure connectivity and application performance issues which dramatically increase mobile worker productivity," said Christopher Kenessey, CEO, NetMotion Wireless. "The growing global demand for our solutions combined with the upsurge in mobility projects across Japan make it a logical area of focus for us. I'm thrilled that our Mobility and Diagnostics Japanese localization is completed and that we have such an experienced executive in Mr. Narita to lead our Japan efforts."

"With enterprises and organizations across Japan deploying mobile devices for their workers, IT organizations can find it a daunting task to meet the needs of mobile workers and corporate expectations for productivity," added Erik Helms, VP of International Sales & Business Development. "Our software is uniquely suited to meet these growing challenges and enable both an increase in productivity while removing the complexity of supporting a mobile workforce. Now having an IT and wireless networking professional, Takahiro Narita, on the team allows us to begin meeting the needs of Japanese customers. With his joining, we are fulfilling our Japanese expansion plans and we look forward to great successes that Mr. Narita will achieve."
