The announcement was made at the RSA Conference 2015 here at the Moscone Center. Huawei decided to pull back its own press release co-announcing the news.

EdgeWave said that the new package combines advanced adaptive analytics from its own EPIC Security Assurance Service with Huawei's USG6300 Series Next Generation Firewall, which provides businesses with adaptive cyber-security features. Adaptive defense approaches cyber-security by putting the key elements—IT, industry expertise and data intelligence—of enterprise security into a single unified framework, with a single control panel.
