Underworks Co. Ltd. (Headquarters: Minato-ku, Tokyo; President and CEO: Manabu Tajima, https://www.underworks. co.jp/, hereinafter “Underworks”) and Japan Airlines Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Shinagawa-ku, Tokyo, President: Yuji Akasaka, hereinafter "JAL") We are pleased to announce that website security and privacy compliance provider "Ensighten" has been selected and implemented on the site (https://www.jal.co.jp/).
JAL websites handles various personal information provided by its customers. They wanted to provide their customers with the highest level of safety and service quality based on a highly secure standard of the data recorded by passengers in Japan and overseas, such as passenger ticket service and reservation ticketing data handled between systems with travel agencies.
The company chose "Ensighten" as an advanced client-side security solution because during an in-depth evaluation process it was determined that the ability to monitor and block a multitude of complex website attack methods was more advanced than many other security solutions which lack similar visibility and control. Beyond this, Ensighten takes a wider approach towards to the security of data, through their data privacy and compliance capabilities.
By implementing Ensighten, JAL websites will be protected from attacks such as web skimming and form jacking, which target personal information in real time within the customer's browser. In addition, the data privacy capabilities enable compliance with the GDPR (EU General Data Protection Regulation) and the CCPA (California Consumer Privacy Act), and further revision of the Personal Information Protection Act scheduled for Japan. In the future, we will be able to continue to strengthen security and compliance globally and enhance governance, including the development of JAL websites in various countries.
Mr. Yamamoto, IT Planning Division, Japan Airlines said, “While considering the enhancement of personal data security in line with the revision of the Personal Information Protection Law planned in Japan, we had to take select a tool as a company that handles personal data from all over the world. Ensighten, which independently provided the latest cutting-edge tool and was proposed by Underworks, which has deep knowledge, prevents customers' personal data from leaking and helps us to comply with compliance.”
Ensighten is the leader in website security and privacy compliance . Their comprehensive security solution provides protection against client-side attacks, malicious adware and data loss, while enabling data privacy and compliance. Some of the largest brands in the world use Ensighten’s MarSec™ platform to protect their websites from a variety of cyberattacks and ensure compliance with global privacy regulation.
Underworks started a partnership with Ensighten in June 2018, and has conducted sales consulting activities centered on global companies in the Japanese market.
Marty Greenlow, CEO of Ensighten commented; “We are pleased to see that Underworks Co. Ltd. continue to promote the importance of security and compliance and that organizations like JAL have the foresight to implement the Ensighten platform to provide attack mitigation and ensure compliance with global regulation. As new data privacy legislation is introduced and data theft methods evolve, the protection of customer data has never been more important and it is vital that all organizations take a preventative approach, just as JAL have done. We look forward to continuing to work with brands including JAL and Underworks Co. Ltd. to provide the leading website security and privacy compliance solution.
