Bandung, 24 April 2024 – Agate International (“Agate”), the largest game development company in Indonesia and one of the largest in Southeast Asia, celebrated its 15-year leadership in the gaming industry by successfully attaining ISO/IEC 27001: 2022 certification for its information security management systems. This accomplishment underscores Agate’s commitment to global expansion and reinforces its position as a powerhouse in the Indonesian gaming sector by ensuring company data and information adhere to international standards. ISO/IEC 27001: 2022, a leading global standard, provides a comprehensive framework for managing information security risks through the establishment of an Information Security Management System (ISMS), safeguarding critical assets from cyber threats. This certification demonstrates the company’s dedication and integrity in meeting regulatory requirements, driving continuous quality improvement, and enhancing stakeholder trust in Agate.

Since its establishment in 2009, Agate has spearheaded and solidified its presence in the rapidly evolving gaming industry for over a decade and a half, embarking on an extraordinary journey that reshaped Indonesia’s gaming landscape and propelled global success. According to a Newzoo report, the global gaming market is projected to reach $189.3 billion by 2024, with sustained growth anticipated this year. Agate managed to record robust revenue growth last year of 75.74% (year-on-year) from international clients and 24.26% (year-on-year) from domestic clients, despite prevailing sentiments in the global gaming industry, further substantiating this momentum. The majority of this positive growth stems from full-cycle development services, including co-development, underscoring Agate’s potential to deliver high-quality gaming experiences and foster strong partnerships with global business associates.

Shieny Aprilia, Co-Founder and CEO of Agate, remarked, “Agate’s 15-year journey has been pivotal for our growth. We take pride in our achievements, particularly in attaining ISO/IEC 27001: 2022 certification, and remain committed to innovation, delivering unforgettable gaming experiences worldwide. Looking ahead, we aim to continue our growth trajectory by consolidating Indonesia’s gaming industry, expanding our focus beyond game development to other ecosystem verticals, enabling us to make a more profound impact on the local and global gaming landscape.”

Cipto Adiguno, Chief Strategy Officer of Agate, added, “The ISO/IEC 27001: 2022 certification marks a significant milestone in our global expansion endeavors, especially as we extend our business footprint into international markets through diverse strategies and ongoing projects. This standard underscores our commitment to upholding the trust of our business partners, particularly on a global scale, as we endeavor to serve as a reliable game development partner to prominent players in the global gaming industry, and data security becomes a crucial factor.”

“Currently, Agate has global representation in Canada, Germany, South Korea, and is developing a representative team in the Americas. By achieving ISO/IEC 27001: 2022 certification, we hope to continue to reach global market share and continue to expand our reach across the world, bringing innovation and positive impact through immersive gaming experiences to millions of players around the world. We believe that collaboration, creativity, and dedication are fundamental to Agate’s success in navigating the dynamic global market,” Cipto concluded.

With a steadfast commitment to creativity, quality, and innovation, Agate has successfully launched numerous acclaimed game titles both nationally and internationally including Valthirian Arc Hero School Story 2, Memories: My Story, My Choice, Football Saga 2, Earl Grey and This Rupert Guy, and 250+ other games.

Currently, Agate focuses on strengthening its B2B2C business to further enhance its expansion strategy with three main strategies, including the development of its global representative teams, leveraging its global network in the gaming industry to strengthen the gaming ecosystem in Indonesia while continuously improving its work quality through three successful Research and Development (R&D) project initiatives, and further developing the skills of local talents and the quality of leadership to accelerate the growth of the gaming industry in the country through Agate Academy.
