During this pandemic era, many employees work from home and it is vitally important to ensure secured access to the corporate data and systems. We are very pleased to be appointed by Indeed Identity as a first Authorized Distributor in Indonesia for Indeed Access Manager, Indeed Privileged Access Manager, and Indeed Certificate Manager products that protect the Indonesian market from cyberattacks,” said Lie Heng as Director of SMI.
