About CSC's Global Expansion
The global cybersecurity market size is forecasted to grow to 248.26 billion U.S. dollars*2 by 2023, more than 25 times the 9.73 billion U.S. dollars*3 projected for the security products and services market in Japan by 2023.
Under such circumstances, in addition to Shadankun, a cloud-based WAF with the No. 1 track record in Japan*4, in 2017 CSC launched WafCharm, a service for automation of AWS WAF operations using AI and began a full-scale global rollout of the service for AWS users, who have a dominant share of the global cloud market. In February 2019, CSC became the world's seventh AWS WAF Managed Rules Seller, and are now selling their own ruleset on the AWS Marketplace.
■ CSC's Managed Rules for AWS WAF has grown to more than 700 global users in the 18 months since its launch
Managed Rules for AWS WAF are available on the AWS Marketplace to more than 1 million AWS users in over 190 countries. Cyber Security Cloud Managed Rules provide a comprehensive set of rules to mitigate vulnerabilities in the OWASP Top 10 web application threat list. It also allows users to be the first to respond to the latest threats using "Cyhorus", its cyber threat intelligence & threat information monitoring team of security researchers, allowing users to quickly build a secure environment.
Also, as Managed Rules can only be sold online via AWS Marketplace, it allows CSC to reach users around the world without needing to invest in human resources in each country.
In addition, in order to be the first to respond to the AWS WAF update on November 25, 2019, CSC launched a new managed rule offering. And with the new update, the limit of 10 rules to be used has been lifted, allowing more rules to be deployed and making it easier to create rules for various detection patterns, making the WAF service more user-friendly.
Furthermore, being recognized as one of only seven Managed Rules sellers on AWS Marketplace, with AWS having a global cloud share of 47%, CSC's technological strength is highly recognized.
