(Head office: Silicon Valley, CA 94086, U.S.A.; CEO: Sofin Raskin) are announcing an integration between VAIO’s platform and Janus’s BIOS-based technology for endpoint security. This collaboration will bring together a best-of-breed solution to help strengthen security against the latest cyber threats.


“The opportunity to work with Janus enables us to strengthen the prevention of cyber threats from the outside and potential threats inside, assuring that employees and employers have a safe and productive work environment. VAIO is excited to partner with Janus on this new security solution which brings BIOS-level protection to VAIO computers,” says Ryosuke Akahane, Executive Vice President of VAIO. “We will start this business in the U.S. and consider expanding to other countries.
