This looks like an old computer system

I would like to see this application turned into a phone application where the end-devices are connected to the mini-usb port. I could see this put into a smaller form-factor where the application can be installed and taken anywhere. - Todd

Also, Mark, you made some good points about using this tool to create a use case or identify ways in which to show they have a solid product. But this can be skewed where the hacker will think of a multitude of ways attack this system. It is good, hopefully they will continue to evolve this product and make it smaller and smarter or as indicated above.

Test and tested
It is highly remarkable for any company at all to actually welcome security experts to try to hack into their system. However, it is the only move to test and prove their capability in this area. If the pros cannot penetrate into their platform, they have just proven themselves. It is a smart way to get professional advice without even having to pay them.

Do it right!
Now this is the way that companies need to go about making sure that their products are safe! I reckon if you offer a reward to people who can hack into a dummy system, people would be (slightly) less inclined to go hacking into the actual system. Of course they've got to be careful that hackers won't have actual access to sensitive information and controls if they succeed though. That would be asking for trouble!
