LINKOPING, SWEDEN – April 14, 2014 - There has recently been a widely publicized bug regarding OpenSSL known as "Heartbleed". Since we have gotten some questions regarding this, we at Configura wanted to inform you that we have not been affected, since we are not using any of the vulnerable versions of OpenSSL.
"We’re happy that we never were affected by this bug. We’re always working to ensure security, and the integrity of our users is most important to us,” Chief Information Officer Tobias Wester said.
What is Heartbleed?
In short, Heartbleed is a bug that enables anyone on the internet to extract a random chunk of memory - up to 64k - from a server, and without the server operator being able to detect it. This means that with enough time and effort, a hacker might extract passwords, private keys and pretty much anything else located in the memory of a server.
More information about the Heartbleed bug can be found here http://heartbleed.com/

Virtual site is a “design center” for manufacturers and designers
LINKÖPING, SWEDEN – March 10, 2014 – Configura today opened a new online Marketplace where manufacturers can publish and market their CET Designer Extensions and Catalogues to interior designers who use CET Designer, Configura’s space-planning software.
Like a bricks-and-mortar market that might have multiple vendors and myriad shoppers, Configura’s online Marketplace provides a virtual space where manufacturers of office furniture, kitchen and bath and other products – and the designers who specify these products – can meet as sellers and buyers.
“Marketplace is the hub for everyone and everything related to CET Designer,” Configura CEO Johan Lyreborn said. “And, it’s designed to grow. We’ve created a system and user interface that can handle a huge amount of products. This is a great opportunity for manufacturers and designers.”
Marketplace is open to all manufacturers that have or want their products in CET Designer, offering incredible product exposure to potentially thousands of interior designers around the world. Manufacturers can control who has access to their CET Designer Extensions and Catalogues.
Extensions and Catalogues are among the solutions that Configura offers to the Contract Furniture, Kitchen and Bath, Industrial Machinery and Material Handling industries. Extensions and Catalogues work in conjunction with CET Designer. Catalogues, which Configura launched in November 2013, is a fast-track way for manufacturers to get their products into CET Designer.
With Marketplace, interior designers benefit from one easy-to-use online location to browse, buy and manage their licenses for CET Designer Extensions and Catalogues.
The Marketplace experience is customized. Each user has a personal CET Designer page; from this page, a user can easily install, uninstall and manage licenses.
“Marketplace is easy for users to navigate and find exactly what they’re looking for. Users can search for specific product lines, and can use filters and key words to refine searches. Plus, we’ve added a feature which highlights the manufacturers that a specific user might be interested in,” Configura Communications Manager Jon Lindholm said.###About the company
