By | August 29, 2006

Wax ActiveLibrary, a network application used by PC users for the secure publication, storage, search, and retrieval of information, has been successfully launched by its Cambridge UK owners into the Japanese market. Wax info Limited of Cambridge www.waxinfo.com – one of the country´s leading developers of secure distributed content management software – announced its successful exhibition at the ICT 3rd Information Security Expo & Conference in Tokyo, Japan.

Mr. Nigel Spence, CEO of Wax info, said: “This was a very important exhibition and conference for us. It was a great success. We were able to demonstrate our powerful new product, ActiveLibrary, to a number of very important delegates. The three-day long Security Expo was well attended by leading companies such as NTT, Canon and Sharp. We see the Japanese market as very important. Being present here is absolutely essential to providing excellent service to our highly-valued customers.

The market for secure, distributed content management software in Asia is huge, and demand is growing strongly. There is a great need for new products, such as ours, to address security and compliance issues across a network of users. ActiveLibrary is unique amongst knowledge management applications because it combines security with ease of use.”

Wax info, backed by “blue chip” institutional investors including Cambridge University and the HSBC Enterprise Fund, made this announcement as part of its strategy of launching its new software solutions into the international markets.

Wax info has recently announced the establishment of an office in Japan, and the company´s success at the Security Expo clearly shows its commitment to the Asian markets.

Wax info Limited was formed in 1997 and is a “spin-off” from The University of Cambridge, Cambridge UK. In early 2000, Wax info received venture capital funding from the Hong Kong-Shanghai Banking Corporation´s (HSBC) Enterprise Fund for East Anglia and the Home Counties, which is managed by Cambridge-based Egan & Talbot Capital Limited. It was in 2000 that Wax won a contract to supply its ActiveLibrary product to the NHS. This delivered up-to-date, mission-critical documents, such as Best Clinical Guidelines, to desk-top PCs in a number of NHS surgeries, hospitals, prisons and military bases.
