SoftServe Launches Program for Regulatory and Compliance Standards with Heartbleed Vulnerability Detection and Remediation Service

May 20, 2014

SoftServe Inc., an outsourced product and application development company, announced it has rolled out a program to help businesses eliminate the Heartbleed Bug, as well as provide organizations a 24- hour turn-around to validate compliance and server security.

According to a release, this solution is key to help remove vulnerabilities the Heartbleed Bug can create in OpenSSL cryptographic software libraries.

"This year, users have already experienced large retail security breaches and the Heartbleed Bug wave is reaching further into business transactions," said Alan Harlan, CEO of SoftServe. "While there will always be security vulnerabilities emerging, SoftServe is dedicated to keep client information iron-clad secure and identify strategies to stay ahead of potential threats. Companies who want to fortify their systems can rely on SoftServe's track record for delivering predictable and reliable results."

Under normal conditions SSL/TLS provides communication security and privacy over the Internet for applications such as web, email, instant messaging (IM) and some virtual private networks (VPNs). However, a coding flaw allows the Heartbleed bug to steal information from remote servers and devices.

The 24-hour Heartbleed Remediation Service includes an impact assessment, a secured server and an official report from SoftServe's Security Consulting Group. The report certifies that SoftServe's DevOps and Security team has corrected and tested all servers for the Heartbleed vulnerability.
