QuickSilk and Cartika Form Strategic Partnership

Ottawa, ON (PRWEB) March 31, 2015

QuickSilk is pleased to announce a strategic partnership with Cartika, a leader in application hosting and advanced clustering technologies. Under the terms of the partnership, Cartika will offer QuickSilk’s subscription based, drag and drop, Content Management System (CMS) as a secure alternative to open source CMS platforms such as WordPress, Drupal and Joomla.

“Together WordPress, Joomla and Drupal power approximately 60% of the worlds websites, but that doesnt mean they’re the right option for every website,” stated Garry Brownrigg, Founder & CEO of QuickSilk. “The core framework for each of these open source platforms tend to be well developed, however, these frameworks and the plug-ins developed for them are open source code leaving them vulnerable to security breaches. In addition, these platforms have been built by programmers, for programmers, so they tend to be more difficult and cumbersome for non-technical people to use.”

QuickSilk is a subscription-based, drag and drop, Content Management System targeting small to medium size enterprises (SME) that enables them to create sophisticated websites up to 90% faster than using Open Source Software (OSS), and with a reduction in operating costs of up to 75%. Users can rapidly build, deploy and self-manage websites, extranets, micro sites, eLearning and collaboration portals using any standards-based web browser. No developer is required!

“These open source frameworks and plug-ins can present a multitude of security threats. The more plug-ins you install, the more likely it is that your website will be vulnerable,” stated Andrew Rouchotas, President of Cartika. “We’re seeing a trend with a segment of our Client base moving away from open source software exactly because of these threats and we view QuickSilk’s solution as a powerful, secure alternative for those looking to move away from Open Source Software.”
