OrangeHRM Secured

Posted in General  by Shaun Bradley No Comments

OrangeHRM continuously keeps on updating its products in order to provide the best solution to customers and also to make sure that the system is secure whereby hackers cannot hack into the system. We have used security good practices and patterns when coding; used industry standard frameworks which have built-in features to prevent common security vulnerabilities. Our developers have been trained on security practices to make sure our code is secure.

The OrangeHRM community and some freelance security experts have been assisting us on this regard too. Security expert, Kenneth Sager, was able to find vulnerabilities in our system. He has chosen OrangeHRM for his review because it was the most popular download on In his spare time Kenneth performs independent reviews of software solutions such as OrangeHRM, this process is called “bug hunting”. He has been able to discover some “bugs” in our system. He has informed us about those and we were prompt to fix them.

In the past other large institutions such as High-Tech Bridge SA in Switzerland, IBM Internet Security Systems X-Force, and Juniper Networks USA have stepped forward to test OrangeHRM for any vulnerability and assisted us to identify and fix them.

OrangeHRM now available in Chinese, French & German

Posted in Product Releases  by Shaun Bradley 3 Comments

OrangeHRM has been translated to many languages during the past few years; however most of the other OrangeHRM add-ons didn’t have translations for any languages. As the first phase of providing translations for all major languages with our new product line which is the OrangeHRM Open Source version, OrangeHRM Professional and OrangeHRM Enterprise we have translations for Chinese, French and German.

The Chinese language (Madarin) being the most widely spoken language in the world in 2013 and with OrangeHRM having an increasing number of users from China, we have translated the product to Chinese in order to provide a more convenient product to clients. Thanks to Freddy Hew for the translations a native Chinese speaker with over 25 years of experience in Chinese to English translations..

France is another country has been using the open source version increasingly in the past few years. We also have a number of clients using our advanced versions and we have received many requests for the system to be translated to French. Eulalie Mulero, a professional translator since 2008 and has been translating English and Spanish to French completed the translation.

Finally for the 1st phase we have the German language pack ready again due to the over whelming user requests. Stephan Hornick, a German language teacher completed this translation.

We have started the 2nd phase of this project and we are glad to let you know that Spanish, Italian and Dutch packs are in line to be released in the 1stquarter of 2014.
