Oakville, Ontario (PRWEB) June 12, 2012
Attix5, distributed exclusively in North America by Stage2Data has locked out world-class Attack and Penetration testing specialsts during a stringent 10-day test designed specifically to uncover vulnerabilities.
The testing was conducted by SensePost – an internationally acclaimed information security assessment service. According to Jacques Swanepoel, Stage2Data CTO, SensePost’s highly trained Attack and Penetration testing specialists worked for 10-days to uncover vulnerabilities in Attix5 Pro V6 but were unable to.
According to the SensePost Security Posture Opinion, Attix5 engaged the company to conduct a Penetration Test on the Attix5 Pro V6 backup system. The test endeavoured during a 10-day period to discover network or application level vulnerabilities that could be exploited by an attacker to subvert the security of the system.
During testing an experienced SensePost Attack and Penetration testing specialist attempted to discover vulnerabilities that would allow unauthorized access to customer data stored within the backup environment. Over a period of 10 days no unauthorized access to customer data was achieved.
Swanepoel outlined the exact methodology of the testing saying “A black-box penetration test, conducted with full access to the underlying infrastructure but without access to application source code was conducted on Attix5 Pro V6 early in 2012. This testing was desgined specifically to emulate an attack by a malicious outsider or a rogue user on a shared environment. The objective of the attacker was to breach the confidentiality of client data backups. In all areas, SensePost was unable to gain access.
Jeff Collier, President of Stage2Data reports that the results of the testing leave no doubt that Attix5 Pro V6 is at the top of the category when it comes to proving itself to be impenetrable even during the most rigorous and extensive testing.
