especially due to high costs until a major security incident happens. Our
solution also supports the compliance regime in different countries.

their firewall/UTM and existing Cyberoam UTM customers who can enjoy WAF
security at a fraction of cost of existing WAF products. It also includes a

and response of web applications, repelling a wide variety of hand-crafted and
open source automated attacks.
