Japanese IT solution evangelist and browser management specialist team up to enable organizations to remedy Java security issues and web application compatibility challenges in multi-browser enterprises.


Tokyo, Japan – 10th April 2013: MAXIMIZE, a technology sourcing company bringing emerging IT technologies to the Japanese market, today announced a partnership with U.S. software maker Browsium, Inc. to provide Japanese organizations with enterprise-class multi-browser management solutions. Browsium Catalyst enables enterprise IT to cope with the challenges associated with multi-browser PC environments—security risks, help desk calls and end user training for appropriate browser choices. 


MAXIMIZE is Browsium’s go-to-market partner to Japan Market for Catalyst, which empowers IT to easily specify the most compatible and secure browser default for each web application and website on every PC in the organization. Catalyst is a lightweight browser add-on that is easy and inexpensive to deploy and requires no new infrastructure investment to support it.  By simply installing Catalyst on PCs running Windows 7 or Windows XP, enterprises can enjoy full benefits of the latest web applications and HTML5 based web sites with a modern browser like Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox, while maintaining the productivity to continue to use existing business critical line of business web applications with Internet Explorer. 


“Multi-browser PC environments are becoming an inevitable reality for many large organizations due to the today’s extremely fast pace of innovation around web technologies.  If a multi-browser PC environment is not properly managed it can result in productivity loss by application compatibility issues or even in a security problem,” commented Satoru Watanabe, CEO at MAXIMIZE. “Browsium addresses the issue of multi-browser management by providing a very simple way to ensure end users always use the required browser for each web application as well as giving IT administrators the ability to centrally manage their web app environments.”


“We are extremely pleased to partner with MAXIMIZE to jointly develop the Japanese market for our solutions,” said Gary Schare, president of Browsium. “Japan has huge potential as a market for Browsium, and we are very certain that our solution will benefit Japanese organizations by letting them transparently and cost-effectively secure and mange multi-browser PC environments.”
