Penetrator 7.0 Provides Total Security to Corporate Users


Ferndale, WA (PRWEB) November 4, 2009

SecPoint’s Penetrator 7.0 (http://www.secpoint.com/penetrator.html) guards against the most common attacks to large-scale businesses, including SQL injection and Cross Site Scripting.

SQL injection relies on poor checking of the information returned from web page requests. By using specific characters, it’s possible for SQL commands to be passed back to the databases running a website. The technique is popular because if a hacker can interrogate the database sufficiently, he might be able to extract their customers’ credit card numbers.

In August, US court documents showed hackers stole 130 million credit and debit card numbers from Heartland Payment Systems through vulnerabilities that a penetration test could have identified.

SecPoint CEO Victor Christiansenn says the first step anyone should take to secure their business is to do a risk assessment to identify threats and vulnerabilities to their IT infrastructure.

“With targeted attacks on the rise and web applications the focus of criminal gangs, testing your network with the Penetrator 7.0 will help any firm deal with the increasing threat of confidential data theft and ensure its security,” he says.

SecPoint’s Penetrator 7.0 helps identify SQL injection and Cross Site Scripting with its automatic crawl engine. Furthermore, it features 50 language dictionaries to crack WPA2 networks and stops ‘war-driving’, where hackers try to take advantage of a company’s open wireless network.

For IT administrators on the move, there is the Portable Penetrator (http://www.secpoint.com/portable-penetrator.html) which comes pre-loaded on a laptop and offers vulnerability scanning and Wi-Fi Security Auditing of WEP, WPA and WPA2 networks. It quickly delivers PDF reports with recommended solutions on how to solve each vulnerability when it is connected to a corporate server system.

Both the Penetrator and portable Penetrator can scan multiple remote locations to deliver centralised reporting, so if a client has a head office in London and sub-offices in Hamburg and Dublin they can scan the internal networks in the sub offices and collect the completed reports in London without human interaction.

SecPoints Online Penetrator also allows clients to subscribe to the Secpoint cloud server and scan their corporate IP addresses for vulnerabilities remotely.

Quanta QCT Announces Total Rack Solution to Deliver Microsoft Private Cloud


Taipei, Taiwan (PRWEB) June 06, 2012

Quanta QCT, a leading provider of server, storage and network equipment to datacenter customers in the United States, announced at the Computex 2012 event in Taipei an integrated rack solution for private cloud, pre-configured with the upcoming Windows Server 2012.

The product was unveiled on stage during a keynote address given by Steven Guggenheimer, corporate vice president of the OEM Division at Microsoft Corp.

The integrated rack solution will include server, storage and network equipment, as well as Windows Server and System Center software, validated under the Microsoft Private Cloud Fast Track program. Fast Track validated designs let clients quickly get up and running with a pre-configured private cloud.

As customers seek more immersive experiences across a range of devices, cloud computing becomes increasingly important. To address this need along with the changing economics of IT, Microsoft has worked with hardware partners to develop the Microsoft Private Cloud Fast Track program. Together with Microsoft, Quanta unveiled its next-generation Fast Track hardware that includes integrated server, storage and networking equipment. This solution accelerates a business time to value, while decreasing cost, complexity and risk. Microsoft private cloud solutions are built using Windows Server with Hyper-V.

Quanta has built a reputation for design excellence focused on reducing the cost and complexity of cloud infrastructure deployment, said Mike Yang, general manager and vice president of Quanta QCT. Our relationship with Microsoft under the Private Cloud Fast Track program and Windows Server 2012 is the most recent example of how we are using our integrated rack solution to give our datacenter customers flexible solutions that can be implemented faster than ever.

Cloud computing is becoming increasingly important, not only as a way to provide consistent experiences across devices but also in how it impacts the economics and operations of IT, Guggenheimer said. Microsoft Private Cloud Fast Track solutions highlight the new networking, compute and storage technology innovations being launched with Windows Server 2012. Working with Quanta Computers, we are pleased to showcase at Computex the next generation of their Fast Track solution that can dramatically accelerate customers time to value while reducing cost and risk.

About Quanta QCT

Quanta QCT provides a comprehensive line of off-the-shelf server, storage and networking solutions to datacenter customers in the United States. Quanta QCT targets midsize and large enterprises, governments and service providers who want the engineering excellence of a global manufacturer of integrated datacenter solutions, but do not require the scale and resources of a full-service ODM. Quanta QCT is headquartered in Fremont, Calif., and its parent company is Quanta Computer, Inc., a $ 37 billion original design manufacturer.

Quanta QCT is the only company that delivers all of the major components of the datacenter value chain: server, storage and networking equipment design and manufacturing capability in a single, proven resource. Presently, datacenters are built with server, storage and networking equipment from different manufacturers. While the industry has adapted to this inefficiency, QCT now makes it possible for datacenters to work with a single manufacturer to verify that the solution is engineered to deliver their targeted technical and cost performance benchmarks.
