Cyber Security Cloud, Inc. announced today that as of the end of May, the total number of users subscribed to its Managed Rules for AWS WAF, available to all Amazon Web Services (AWS) users, has exceeded 1,000. *1

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.

As part of its expansion into the global security market, Cyber Security Cloud rolled out its own set of Managed Rules for AWS WAF on the AWS Marketplace in February 2019 for all users of AWS, which hold a dominant share of the global cloud market.

AWS WAF Managed Rules are a carefully selected set of AWS WAF security rules that are independently created by security expert vendors. Normally, when using AWS WAF, users need to create their own rules in accordance with the attack they want to defend against, but with managed rules, users can create a strong and secure environment with minimal effort.

This time, Cyber Security Cloud, Inc. announced that its Managed Rules for AWS WAF has exceeded over 1,000 subscribers. According to their CEO, Mr. Hikaru Ohno, the main reasons for this are the strengthening of their structure for global expansion and the use of AWS, a global platform, to improve their name and brand recognition in each country and to build up their track record.

In addition, services provided by CSC now have subscribers in over 60 countries and regions, and Managed Rules in particular is making a significant contribution to their global expansion.

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. Therefore, in order to further strengthen its expansion into the global security market in the future, CSC is aiming to further increase the number of users through aggressive promotions in the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, France, and other countries where the number of subscribers is particularly high.
