Message from the CEO

Welcome to the Blueshift corporate website. I would like to personally thank you for taking the time to learn more about us.

I am originally from Minneapolis, Minnesota (USA) and came to Japan in 1992. I only planned on staying for a short period but over time came to love Japan for its unique history, culture and the friendships that developed. Tokyo is now the place my family and I call home.

Co-founding Blueshift in 2004 we began by introducing network security and storage products to Japan and the Asia-Pacific region. Within a few years our focus narrowed to the data backup and disaster recovery (DR) market where we now develop solutions for organizations of all sizes.

Since our initial years the market has changed dramatically as data growth, cloud services and most recently malware in the form of ransomware greatly influences enterprise IT investment decisions. In the coming years I believe further market place disruption will take place as businesses follow the trend of shifting data and compute workloads off premise to secure data centers or to SaaS, IaaS and PaaS providers,

Our business growth is driven by our client’s success. Whether we are implementing a private cloud solution, recovering data for a client’s audit or assisting with an annual disaster recovery project, we work closely with our clients and partners to realize a successful outcome. And at the core of every success are good people. Blueshift believes in its’ people and we strive to ensure our people are professional, knowledgeable, capable and at all times focused on the success of our clients.

Thank you again for your time. I look forward to providing additional information about Blueshift and our market as it develops. Our website remains the best source for updated information. Please feel free to contact and interact with us.
