Shireburn Software is conscious of its obligations to its clients to ensure the security, confidentiality and availability of the Shireburn Indigo infrastructure. In addition to hosting Shireburn Indigo on the Microsoft Azure Cloud infrastructure, designing security features into the software and ensuring the correct configuration of the environment to assure this security, we periodically rely on 3rd party specialist organisations to undertake independent tests of our systems and infrastructure.

These tests, referred to in the industry as Penetration Tests, consist of reviewing the practices, software and settings and any attempts to circumvent any security provisions in the infrastructure or the application software.  The findings of these tests are reported to Shireburn Software which, if applicable, would modify any appropriate issues prior to a re-test being undertaken.

The most recent Penetration Test of the Shireburn Indigo environment was undertaken by Cybergate International in December 2021, using the Open-Source Security Testing Methodology Manual (OSSTMM) and the OWASP Web Security Testing Guide (WSTG) with a focus on OWASP's top 10 auditing standards and guidelines.

Cybergate International is an established cyber security company with more than 10 years' experience in the field. A certificate of successful testing was issued in on 23 December 2021 and is linked below.
