Vendor Security Challenge

To keep things interesting, we’ve decided that we’re going to open up a challenge to all computer hardware/software vendors out there.

We’re looking for 10-20 vendors to come forward and put the security of their devices and/or applications to the ultimate test. So, do you trust your developers and the security of your devices, if so then get in touch.

What we’ll be doing is performing an in-depth penetration test again the device/application, and then publishing a overall security score out of 10 for the Vendor and the product tested. We will not be disclosing any vulnerabilities publicly for this, only the ratings, vendor’s name and device/application name. Each item tested will have a Blog post written about the device/application, and the overall winner will also get additional Blog post about your device/application and why it won overall in our security testing.

As we will be performing a full penetration test against these devices, we will also be writing reports and documenting any findings and how to mitigate against these vulnerabilities. These reports will remain ITSG company property, and your respective report will be available to purchase for a fixed cost, should you wish to have a copy.

*Please note that we will only sell the report to the vendor, you will not be able to buy competing vendors reports.*

Are there any vendors out there who are up for the challenge? If so, please use get in touch via the Contact Us page, and good luck!

We’ll keep you all updated of entries and any vendors that take us up on this challenge.
