Partnership with Canon System Solutions, Japan

Paessler today announced a partnership with Canon System Solutions (CSS) to market Paessler products in Japan. This enables Japanese customers to work with first choice products from Paessler for network monitoring without any language barriers.

With this decision both parties bring together their strengths to build up a dominant position for software tools in this large Asian market. CSS gained strong position as a republisher in the past and brought expertise of the local market and experienced sales staff into the partnership. Paessler contributes its award winning and easy to use software products. CSS will take care of the first and second level support in the Japanese language. Both sites agreed already one year ago on contracting a partnership and working together.

IPCheck Server Monitor is the first product to be localized to the Japanese language. Sales start on February 19th 2005. This Windows-based software makes it easy and affordable to detect network and website failures early and helps to minimize downtime and avoid economic impact. The next Paessler products for the Japanese market will be PRTG Traffic Grapher and Webserver Stress Tool.

Concerning this partnership CEO Dirk Paessler said: "The expansion to one of the most important and dynamic IT markets of the world proves Paessler's commitment to be a software publisher which acts in all important markets. The customer feedback we receive shows a global demand for professional but affordable software, which is easy to use. And that is our addiction!"
