From the Cloud, by the Cloud, for the Cloud



nternational Systems Research Co. (ISR), established in 1993 in Tokyo, is a certified Google Enterprise Partner (GEP). Its vision, One Safe Login, means that ISR is making the Internet’s cloud based information sharing platforms safe for anyone, anyplace, anytime. With ample experience developing security and business related web applications since the early era of the Internet, ISR is committed to its mission – to provide the world’s best cloud security solution, CloudGate.

Cloud computing has been introduced to many companies, with more and more deciding to migrate to the cloud every day as they realize the many advantages of cloud computing. These merits include cost reduction, increases in productivity, and improvement in user experience. This is why cloud computing will continue to thrive, even through tough economic times.

However, one challenge that many companies deal with is that these convenient services can be less secure than on-premise infrastructure. Business users require secure access to cloud services without sacrificing productivity. ISR solves this problem by providing various types of access control, user provisioning, and flexible management capabilities.

ISR secures the access to G Suite and Salesforce, two leading cloud services, and has been at the forefront of the web’s most advanced technologies since its foundation. ISR’s product, CloudGate, enhances cloud service usage and provides practical, affordable, non-stop security features to companies that are migrating, or have already migrated to the cloud. CloudGate was developed based on hundreds of years of combined knowledge and experience with enterprise systems.

ISR  is dedicated to secure every access to the cloud.

ISR has been growing as an innovative company in the Public Cloud SaaS market since 2008. We have been providing access control and authentication services for cloud access via our in-house developed product, CloudGate, and improving it based on our customers’ needs. Starting with IP address restriction, we added  time zone, and country access restriction to our access control function, and fingerprint and second-factor options to our authentication function. It is because of this agility and innovation, that we are able to provide our service faster to the market.

Today, public cloud market has expanded from SaaS to IaaS with the market size increasing year by year. As the leader in the IaaS market,  AWS provides low-cost services based on a customer-centric thinking.  With AWS products, such as Amazon EC2 and S3, developers are able to speed up the developing process, and build their projects freely in a virtual environment that only charges for the part which users use. AWS brought up this innovation which accelerates the speed of developing products and starting new businesses. It is because of this innovation that AWS has become the leader in the IaaS market.

CloudGate will ride on to this innovation by supporting AWS services.  However, along with the increase of developing speed, a change in organization structure is necessary. Therefore, we are introducing the DevOps culture to our organization to speed up our developing process and generate innovation.

Innovation develops business, and the innovation resulting from the creation of new products accelerates the speed of building new businesses within the corporation. The most important purpose of innovation is to release products faster, since it brings a larger possibility of having bigger share in the market. Hence, the speed of developing cycle is crucial when it comes to entering a market quickly. In the past, it took time to test and verify new product ideas because the process of setting up servers lasted a long time. But with the virtual machine environment on public cloud, the server setup process was shortened to minutes from months. Cost of server setup also decreased comparatively. Thus, the speed of realizing new ideas has become faster, while the usage of public cloud accelerates the innovation process.

Public cloud improves the speed of product development. In order to keep up the acceleration that public cloud brought into the developing process, we break the wall between developers and operators, and introduce the DevOps culture into our organization. Without the barrier between developers and operators, I believe that we can bring the next innovation into the market and provide better service to our customers.
