Press release

Cyber Security Cloud concluded a distributorship agreement with Tenda Co.,Ltd., a provider of enterprise software solutions

Cyber Security Cloud, Inc. (CSC) is pleased to announce that it concluded a distributorship agreement with Tenda Co., Ltd., a provider of enterprise software solutions, for its cloud-based WAF "Shadankun", and its service for automation of AWS WAF operations "WafCharm".

■ Background
Corporate cybersecurity is broadly categorized into "Internal Security" and "Web Security". And, in "web security" in particular, despite the high risk of personal information leakage due to cyber attacks, companies tend to lack awareness and countermeasures. In 2018, eight of the top 10 most leaked personal information incidents *1 were found to have been caused by unauthorized access, and those eight leaks alone accounted for a total of 2,300,859 people, or more than 40% of the total number of personal information leaks (5,613,797 people).

Furthermore, with the rapid introduction of telework in recent times, the scale of damage is expected to increase due to delays in discovering and responding to cyber-attacks. Under these circumstances, web security measures are becoming more and more urgent for companies.

■ About the Distributorship Agreement with Tenda
Against this backdrop, CSC signed a distributorship agreement with Tenda, a provider of enterprise software solutions, to provide its cybersecurity services.

Tenda, which has a track record of introducing its products to more than 5,000 corporate clients, including "Dojo", as part of its cloud services and SI services, will sell CSC's cybersecurity services, such as the cloud-based WAF "Shadankun", which is ranked No. 1 *2 in Japan in terms of adoption rate and "WafCharm", an AI-based automatic rule (signature) management service for AWS WAF, which has the largest number of installed users in Japan. *3

With the conclusion of the distributorship agreement with Tenda, CSC aims to enhance the security of more than 1,000 sites built by Tenda and help even more companies reduce their cybersecurity risks.
