"As we continue to expand internationally, a physical presence in the world's financial centers helps us deliver the high level of service our customers expect. We recognize the importance of having a strong local presence for doing business with Japanese companies."

"I have followed Authentify and this market for several years. Authentify is a very reputable company with a very high quality service," said Shigeru Shimoda, president and managing director of Authentify, KK.
