Following Series B funding from Microsoft Ventures and Kleiner Perkins, this expansion marks the first foray of the company into international markets, and will help meet the cybersecurity demands of Japan and Asia Pacific.

The traditional password is vulnerable and inconvenient. Organizations across the region are hungry for an advanced solution like Trusona.”

Offering three tiers of security, Trusona’s #NoPasswords solution can be integrated into any service requiring identity authentication from bank account authentication to streaming media logins to organization’s virtual private networks (VPN)..  Trusona is already being utilized across leading government, health care, finance, and media corporations.
