Versasec's Newest Reseller, Blue Fortress in KL

Versasec, a leader in credentials management systems (CMS), today announced it has added a new reseller partner, Blue Fortress, an IT security solutions provider, to assist with the growing demand for Versasec security identity and access management solutions in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region. Versasec opened an office in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia several months ago to expand its APAC presence.

Blue Fortress will help deploy vSEC:CMS, Versasec's CMS product suite, which provides all the software tools to administer and manage smart cards in a secure and convenient way. While most companies recognize the importance of two-factor authentication (2FA) of user identities, managing their 2FA implementations with proprietary in-house or multiple commercial solutions can be time consuming and costly. Versasec's cost-effective, easily implemented and intuitive vSEC:CMS solutions remove the barriers to true identity and access management. Versasec vSEC:CMS is optimized for deployment in small- or large-scale projects.

"It is definitely an exciting time for the IT security industry, especially for identity and access management," said Luke Shu, Sales Director, Blue Fortress Sdn Bhd. "With the growing number of connected devices and heightened sense of security among the private sector and government entities, the demand for better and more sophisticated identity management solutions is definitely in the crosshairs of IT departments, specifically within the organization's security teams. With Versasec having its local presence here, bringing along their technical expertise and vast experience in the field of identity and access management, we are sure that our synergistic partnership will open plenty of opportunities in Malaysia. With the recently published Risk Management in Technology (RMiT) by Bank Negara, this partnership couldn't have come at a better time."

"We're seeing increased demand in our credential management solutions in the Asia-Pacific region," said Joakim Thorén, Versasec CEO. "As we continue working toward expanding our presence in the APAC region, Blue Fortress will help us make inroads to new clients and help us support clients that are deploying our vSEC:CMS suite of products."
