VARStreet Invests Heavily in the Platform Security of its VAR Business Management Platform

Published on 11-05-2021 | Product Team

VARStreet takes crucial steps to improve the security levels of their B2B eCommerce platform to prevent cyber-security threats.

Boston, Ma, United States, May 7, 2021 | VARStreet Inc. is a market-leader in business management solutions for IT and office supply value-added resellers (VARs) across the United States and Canada. The cloud-based enterprise software solution is hosted and maintained in the well known data center service provider, Expedient Inc in Boston, Massachusetts within a Virtual Private dedicated environment with multi-tiered security.

VARStreet has always had standard/known perimeter security layers and security devices such as firewalls which protect applications from bad IPs, geolocations, etc. But with hacking patterns changing over time, VARStreet implemented Web Application Firewall Security, commonly known as WAFS, to enhance their security parameters to mitigate the risk of attacks done at the HTTP/HTTPS level, which are deeper and more intrusive than regular cyber-attacks.

WAF prevents all traffic with common anomalies such as malicious IPs, ToR traffic, volumetric DDoS attacks, bad BOTs (allows good BOTs), etc.

The WAFS comes with regular updates to the signature database to provide protection against the latest exploits as well as offering tools to create custom signatures keeping the application secure.

In addition to WAF implementation, VARStreet’s software security team has also enhanced their encryption methodologies at multiple levels by implementing strict policies to secure customer data. VARStreet is investing heavily to nullify security threats by implementing necessary checks and development processes to make its VAR business management software more secure for its users.

The VARStreet user base stands at over 25,000 VAR users from over 5000 value-added reselling businesses with over $10 billion worth of transactions passing through VARStreet annually.

Their software stack consists of a B2B eCommerce platform, sales quoting software, CRM, and procurement software. The platform integrates with 45+ IT and office supplies distributors for a collective product catalog of over 7 million SKUs from popular brands and manufacturers like Microsoft, HP, Lenovo, Motorola and more.

Shiv Agarwal, Director, VARStreet Inc. said, "With a substantial increase in the count of users and organizations on digital platforms, user data has become more vulnerable and prone to cyber-attacks and it is the responsibility of the SaaS platforms to ensure a high level of platform security and data privacy", He also added, “VARStreet is extremely focussed towards prevention of data privacy and user security, and is taking all necessary steps to ensure a secure platform to our users
