Is CWAF targetted at businesses only?

I think so, you have at least have to have a linux box with this in front of your own web server. So I don't think you can't use it on a co-hosted box.

Would be nice if you could run this as a reverse proxy on the same box in front of your web site, that would save a box, maybe staff can answer this question?

Or that it could integrate with some of the major "Hosting Automation Control Panels"

It's possibly to run CWAF on the same box. And it's easy to configure.

In a future we also plan to integrate with popular "Hosting Automation Control Panels" and develop special module solutions for a popular web-servers.

Lordy I wish I had begun learning web hosting originally on *nix platform. Regrettably I chose the WAMPP route using Joomla! as my CMS of choice. This would be the 1st thing installed in every instance of putting up a server/ site.

Is there a derivative of sorts similar to this that could be incorporated in a windows environment? And/Or the possibility of a similar tool set that could be offered as a Joomla! extension? This would win top honors without a doubt.
