[The factors behind inclusion in Fast 500]
The company's achievement of a 338.58% revenue (sales) growth rate is attributed to the following factors:

  • Factor 1: High continuity rate due to improved customer satisfaction

Security services provided by CSC, i.e. cloud-based WAF “Shadankun”, service for automation of AWS WAF operations “WafCharm”, and a set of Managed Rules for AWS WAF “Cyber Security Cloud Managed Rules for AWS WAF “-HighSecurity OWASP Set-“, are all subscription-based and therefore customer satisfaction is extremely important.
As a result of maintaining a high level of satisfaction through consistently providing in-house operation, maintenance, sales, and support services, the long-term continuation rate (98.9% *1) and additional subscriptions from existing users have progressed and became a factor of growth for CSC.

  • Factor 2: Global expansion and new technology development by R&D

With the advancement of AI technology around the world, cyber-attacks on Web systems are expected to become increasingly sophisticated, and by actively investing in new technology development, CSC was able to expand its customer base, which became a crucial factor for its growth.
In February 2019, CSC started its global expansion by launching a set of Managed Rules on the AWS Marketplace and was certified as the 7th Managed Rules seller in the world by AWS (Amazon Web Services), which has a 34% *2 global cloud market share.
CSC also developed a new attack detecting AI engine using deep learning in August 2019.

  • Factor 3: Improved recognition by exhibiting at large events and using famous artists for promotion

Since awareness of its services in the market is extremely important for expanding its sales, in October 2018, CSC started distributing video ads with Mr. Shinobu Sakagami (a famous Japanese personality) on the web. CSC also put efforts by exhibiting at large events aimed at further market expansion, which resulted in an important factor in its growth.
Commenting on the recognition, President/CEO Hikaru Ohno said, “Our aim is to create a secure cyberspace that people around the world can use safely, and for that we provide consistent in-house development of web security services, including design, operation, maintenance, sales, and support. Also, by utilizing “Cyneural” (a cyber-attack detecting AI engine using Deep Learning), with the world’s leading cyber threat intelligence, we aim to make it possible to detect and analyze unknown threats (zero-day attacks) and high precision cyber-attacks by AI that are difficult to detect with conventional WAFs. As a leading cybersecurity company, we strive to improve and develop new technologies and aim to be a company that can deliver effective security solutions to contribute to the information revolution”.
