Penta Security Systems Partners with ACE Pacific Group to Deliver WAPPLES to APAC Region

Penta Security Systems, a leader in web, IoT, and data security solutions and services in the Asia-Pacific region, has announced a partnership with Singapore-based security solution/service provider, ACE Pacific Group. Marking 20 years of IT expertise in the field of web security this year, Penta Security has steadily continued its expansion into Southeast Asia, solidifying and growing its foothold in the web and data security industry with WAPPLES, its leading security product which already enjoys market dominance.

While a Web Application Firewall (WAF) is the single most preventive security solution in the IT industry, traditional appliances create another problem of generating high false positives due to the fact that detection engines use pattern-matching and depend on signature updates. Recognizing the need for a logical analysis engine, Penta Security developed WAPPLES to be powered by superior detection technology. Seeking to deliver a powerful security solution to the APAC region and capture a share of the rapidly growing WAF market, ACE Pacific Group sought out a partnership with Penta Security Systems for its award-winning WAF, WAPPLES.

Recognized as the top WAF in APAC based on market share, WAPPLES boasts a logic-analysis based detection engine that does not require signature updates and offers an intuitive GUI management console. Because WAPPLES has proven capable of detecting web attacks with higher accuracy and precision than similar WAF services, Penta Security has attracted immense interest in the Southeast Asian region and has acquired new distributors like ACE Pacific Group. Penta Security seeks to maintain its strong presence in the APAC region through this mutually beneficial partnership.

Ivan Lo, Regional Sales Director of ACE Pacific Group said, “Strategically, this revolutionary partnership is a perfect fit to help us in delivering a robust WAF product to the Asia-Pacific region – an essential addition and complement to any suite of IT-security products and solutions. We are ecstatic about this partnership with Penta Security and how WAPPLES can significantly position ACE Pacific Group as a leading distributor in the region.”

Penta Security Systems’ Chief Strategy Officer Duk Soo Kim remarked,

“Frost & Sullivan selected Penta Security as 2016’s Asian Cyber Security Vendor of the Year and has recognized Penta’s increasing presence in the APAC market. Along with ACE Pacific Group’s established influence in Singapore and across the Southeast Asian region, enterprises, governments and NGOs in the region are starting to see the need to ramp up their cybersecurity deployments, and through this cooperative partnership, we’re confident that we will drive steady growth in the adoption of our superior WAF technology across more industries.”
