Cyber Security Cloud collaborates with Headwaters to strengthen cybersecurity in the DX/AI domain – Deploying DX services that utilize the multi-AI platform “SyncLect” and “Shadankun”
Cyber Security Cloud, Inc. (CSC) is pleased to announce that it is collaborating with Headwaters Co., Ltd., an AI solutions company, to strengthen cybersecurity in the DX/AI domain. The company also announced that Headwaters has adopted its cloud-based WAF "Shadankun".
In recent years, many companies have become increasingly active in promoting AI-driven DX in order to improve business efficiency and productivity, and the spread of the new coronavirus outbreak has accelerated the digitalization of such companies.
Under such circumstances, Headwaters, which is engaged in AI solutions business such as AI application planning and development and AI platform management, has developed a multi-AI platform called "SyncLect".
SyncLect is an AI data integration platform that provides various cloud AI functions such as image AI and machine learning, and since the data necessary for AI use is managed in the cloud, it makes it possible to utilize AI regardless of the interface, whether it is for the web, an app, or a robot and contributes to the promotion of DX in many companies.
On the other hand, in promoting DX and AI, cybersecurity measures for websites, which are the primary point of contact with customers, are becoming more important. Leakage of personal information due to cyber-attacks has become a social problem, and it is expected that the need for such measures will increase in the future.
Against this backdrop, CSC and Headwaters actually provide services that link "SyncLect" and "Shadankun", including a face recognition payment platform for unmanned store operations.
And this time, CSC is working in full-fledged cooperation with Headwaters to strengthen cybersecurity related to solutions in AI and DX domain, which is important for companies to advance digitalization and introduce "Shadankun" as needed for cybersecurity measures in AI and DX domain solutions provided by Headwaters.
Through this collaboration, Headwaters will be able to provide a one-stop-shop for AI solutions to achieve DX and the cloud-based WAF "Shadankun" to enhance cybersecurity, enabling CSC to strengthen its web security services to a broader range of companies, including those seeking to improve their operational efficiency and productivity.
In addition to linking Headwaters' new employee training support cloud service, "Pocket Work Mate", and the equipment management cloud service, "Circurental", with CSC's cloud-based WAF, "Shadankun", the Company will develop services for cybersecurity measures and business efficiency improvement solutions in the DX domain.
Going forward, the two companies will continue to work together not only in the DX domain but also in a wide range of other domains to support corporate service development and operational efficiency, while at the same time working to ensure safety and security.
