History

Karmesh Gupta & Praveen Gupta co-founded HttpCart Technologies Pvt. Ltd. in October 2014 with the vision to make it a global product company out of India. HttpCart launched its first product on April 01, 2015, as an Unlimited Free WiFi service and subsequently became the first Indian private company to offer it. However, due to slow adoption & capital issues, it was closed down within a year.[4]

In December 2016, WiJungle was again reintroduced as a Social WiFi product but the then ongoing massive telecom revolution in India thwarted their operations within two & half months itself. Later, in April 2017 WiJungle was reconceptualised into Unified Network Security Platform to pursue the company's vision to serve a billion users. In February 2018, the company made its first overseas sale.[5]

In 2017, WiJungle was launched with 12 different product models to cater small & mid market businesses. Further in March 2019, X series & high end models were added to the product portfolio to serve large enterprises.
