NAGANO, Japan–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Today VAIO Corporation (Head office: Azumino City, Nagano Prefecture,

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,”
