Our commitment to security
At Panorama9 we take security seriously. We know you trust us with your data and so protecting it is our first priority. Most of the team have background in IT security in one form or another and a few of us are downright paranoid when it comes to security. We take pride in making the most secure IT administration tools available and believe in security-out-of-the-box.
That said we also know that no software is ever a 100% secure and so we ask you to follow responsible disclosure if you should find a security flaw in our service. If you think you found a security flaw in our product please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Responsible disclosure policy
Simple rules for testing security:
- Please report your findings to email@example.com with enough detail to allow us to reproduce the issue.
- Please only test against your own account and with your own data (if you ask nicely we can give you multiple test accounts to try stuff out with).
- Don't DOS, spam, fish or break things for our other users.
- Don't disclose security flaws publicly before we have a chance to fix the flaw.
If you do that we in turn promise to:
- Fix the flaw quickly (some things take hours, some things may take weeks).
- Credit you for your help.
- Keep lawyers and law enforcement out of the matter.
A few notes on what and how to report
A report with copy paste from a scanning tool, just a zip file attached or a video as proof of concept is not as helpful as a real textual description of the bug in question.
We are primarily interested in bugs found in our:
- Web applications (the Dashboard and MSP Control Panel),
- agent software (Windows, Linux and OSX versions),
- general infrastructure (we use and integrate with a lot of third party services).
We are not interested in reports on SPF or other mail settings. We are quite happy with how that is setup, thank you.
