Alliance Underscores PFU Systems' Commitment to Grow Its Technical Partner Ecosystem With Key Security Industry Vendors

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwired - Dec 22, 2014) - PFU Systems Inc., a Fujitsu company and provider of network access control and security technology, today announced a new strategic partnership with OPSWAT, a provider of solutions to secure and manage IT infrastructure, giving enterprise and SMB organizations greater protection against cyber threats.

OPSWAT delivers solutions and technologies that protect devices and help secure digital data flow. Partnering with PFU Systems, the companies will together develop a new and comprehensive endpoint and network solution for advanced device security and compliance. The solution will leverage device visibility and management through OPSWAT GEARS and the industry-leading Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) malware detection now offered exclusively on PFU's flagship security product, iNetSec Smart Finder.

The new integrated solution will further protect enterprise networks and corporate devices against east-west attacks and the spreading of advanced malware in the corporate network from device to device. The combined security platform provides additional layers of security by combining advanced endpoint scans by GEARS with PFU's unique multidirectional malware detection.

"This partnership will provide a powerful solution to enforce that devices on the network are secure, protected and compliant. We are looking forward to working with PFU Systems to deliver the joint solution to customers," said Tom Mullen, Vice President of Business Development at OPSWAT.
