Cybertrust Japan Continues Support for AlmaLinux OS Foundation as Platinum Sponsor – EIN News



FORT MYERS, FLA., USA, July 2, 2024 / — The AlmaLinux OS Foundation, the nonprofit stewarding the forever-free, community-owned and governed, open-source enterprise Linux operating system AlmaLinux OS, today announced that Tokyo-based Cybertrust Japan Co., Ltd, a subsidiary of SB Technology Corp, has renewed its platinum sponsorship, providing invaluable support for the foundation’s ongoing community growth initiatives.

In May 2023, AlmaLinux first announced that Cybertrust Japan would be adopting AlmaLinux as the base for its MIRACLE LINUX distribution. The renewed commitment to AlmaLinux as a platinum sponsor member deepens Cybertrust’s participation in the foundation. Members of Cybertrust work on the development of AlmaLinux OS and contribute to the overall technical direction. Cybertrust Japan also played a key role in organizing the first-ever AlmaLinux Day: Tokyo. Welcoming nearly 100 attendees on December 9, 2023, AlmaLinux Day: Tokyo featured insightful discussions with Cybertrust Japan and AlmaLinux OS Foundation members surrounding the OS’s future.

“We at Cybertrust Japan are honored to continue our participation as a platinum sponsor member of the AlmaLinux OS Foundation this year,” said Yuji Kitamura, President & CEO of Cybertrust Japan. “With our extensive experience in MIRACLE LINUX and active contributions to the OSS community, including initiatives such as OpenSSF, we are committed to enhancing security and expanding SBOM support for AlmaLinux users. We are excited about the future and look forward to promoting the safe and reliable use of open source software together with AlmaLinux.”

Engagement with the Japanese open source community this year will include participation in the Open Source Summit in October, expanding meetup group and user group participation, in addition to more open source conferences across Japan, and organizing another AlmaLinux Day: Japan!

“Cybertrust’s unwavering commitment to AlmaLinux arms the foundation with notable resources aimed at security and longevity,” said benny Vasquez, chair of the AlmaLinux OS Foundation. “In just the last year, we’ve experienced a notable upswing in the adoption of AlmaLinux in Japan. We’ve more than doubled the number of mirrors in Japan while also growing the number of devices calling home for updates in Asia by more than 40 percent. Cybertrust’s support is a clear key catalyst for this expansion.”

AlmaLinux is currently supported by more than 25 sponsors providing everything from development and infrastructure support to financial resources. New sponsors are added regularly – and anyone interested in joining the foundation as a sponsor member is welcome to review the options on the website or reach out to the membership committee for more information.
