Lagrange Systems Offers Heartbleed Security Fix for Vulnerable Companies

If you’re running a server with OpenSSL 1.0.1, you might know about the Heartbleed bug that allows any attacker to read the memory of a vulnerable host. The Heart Bleed virus affects millions of websites worldwide.

In order to save OpenSSL versions 1.0.1 Lagrange Systems, a provider of cloud-based web and application performance software, has a simple and effective resolution for companies affected by the OpenSSL security flaw, known as “Heartbleed.”

The enterprise customers of Lagrange Systems’ solutions are currently protected from this issue and the companies which need network security fix.

To offer immediate level of protection to Lagrange customers, the company has installed the SSL security fix on its Application Delivery Controllers (ADCs) immediately after the security flaw was announced.

Treehouse Brand Stores, which operates seven official online stores for many of the biggest video game publishers in the world, has deployed the SSL security fix. Several other clients like Torry Harris Business Solutions (THBS), a multinational provider of business has approached the company with concerns about security, yet the issue was already resolved and THBS could set their customers’ minds at ease.

Lagrange Systems provides enterprise-class software that enables all e-commerce and other web applications to improve performance, scalability and availability.

The company’s CloudMaestro software, a SaaS (News - Alert), SDN software solution designed for true and automatically provisioned high availability for organizations where website performance is mission-critical and unplanned downtime is unacceptable.

Jay Smith, Lagrange Systems’ chief technology officer said in a statement, “This security issue affects millions of websites, and even small businesses are vulnerable now that the flaw has been widely identified. What is critical to note is that companies and organizations using OpenSSL technology are responsible for fixing this issue. Lagrange can provide that security protection because we act as a broker between a company’s website and their users.”
