Forum Systems saves UK from Heartbleed

Security Key on Keyboard

Forum Systems, the company that created an API to protect internet users from the Heartbleed bug, has announced a UK partnership agreement with ASM Technologies.

Stephen Dale, channel manager at ASM Technologies says: "As soon as we saw what Forum Sentry was capable of, we knew that we needed to bring it to the UK channel. From a technical point of view it is absolutely world class. The feedback from our early adopter customers has been fantastic, with every one of them confirming that it is much quicker and easier to deploy than competitive products."

He goes on to say that the solution is perfect for organisations that have traditionally been reluctant to capitalise on the commercial benefits of cloud computing because they fear their data is at risk.

Additionally, Forum Sentry’s point-and-click interface is perfect for companies where there isn't a huge IT department because of its ease to set up and integrate with existing security solutions.

Forum Sentry is the world’s first and only API gateway to be awarded with the internationally recognised Network Device Protection Profile (NDPP) compliance certification.

Mamoon Yunus, CEO of Forum Systems says: “We are on a mission to remove security as a concern in cloud computing. The convenience, cost saving and scalability benefits of the cloud are just too important for doubts around security to stand in the way of progress."
