afe transition to the cloud made easy with proactive testing on demand
London, 26 June 2013: Security Aware, an innovative IT Security Consultancy, has announced the launch of its Penetration Testing Services on the Interoute CloudStore. Security Aware’s Penetration Testing Services complement Interoute’s Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) Virtual Data Centre (VDC) by offering enterprises across Europe the ability to conduct proactive testing, in order to prevent security breaches and satisfy compliance requirements.
Interoute CloudStore is an online retail marketplace where enterprises can buy applications tested and approved to work on Interoute VDC, as well as professional services that can help facilitate the move to the cloud. Interoute VDC gives enterprises the ability to provision and control computing and storage infrastructure, on demand, online, using a pay-as-you-go model. Uniquely, users can select the data centre and city they want their data to be hosted and stored in (ensuring compliance with stringent European data protection regulations) and can even transfer data and appliances between Virtual Data Centres in five different countries, for free using Interoute’s network.
Clinton Walker, CEO, Security Aware, said: “We chose to partner with Interoute because the Interoute CloudStore delivery model aligns perfectly with our strategy and value proposition. Interoute’s Virtual Data Centre platform is built on a secure, scalable, and future-proof system, which will no doubt bring tremendous benefits to our clients as a one-stop-shop to fulfill their requirements”.
Matthew Finnie, CTO of Interoute, added: “Being proactive about identifying potential vulnerabilities in your corporate IT setup is a crucial step in protecting your organisation from both external and internal threats. By offering Security Aware’s penetration testing service from the Interoute CloudStore, we are making this sophisticated security quick to provision on demand and accessible anywhere through Interoute Virtual Data Centre.”
