Can I do security/penetration testing on my account?

Applies to: Grid System

Modwest has a strong interest in ensuring the security of our technical and physical infrastructure, and we consistently make security a priority of our day to day operations.

Generally, we do not authorize any security or penetration testing of our systems. Any entity that we discover probing or otherwise testing security features of our infrastructure may be treated as a hostile attacker, blocked at our network border, and reported to law enforcement, particularly if the scanning/probing activity is disruptive.

However, periodic non-disruptive scans conducted by a legitimate professional scanning entity only as required by law or industry regulations will be tolerated.

Because of the limitations of network scans and the high percentage of false positives they produce, we may be unable to respond to scan reports, except as explained in this article on specific issues.
