August : 2011 : BackTrack Linux – Penetration Testing Distribution



BackTrack Enterprise Support and Customization Services

After a lot of hard work and extensive testing, we are proud and excited to announce the public release of our new commercial siteĀ BackTrack-Linux.com. The .com site is a companion to the traditional .org, offering paid features and services that we have not been able to offer before.

Commercial Support

BackTrack Linux has become the most popular Linux based penetration testing distribution available. However, to this day there are some organizations that would love to use it but have not been able to due to internal regulations that require support contracts for any software that is used. Additionally, other organizations have reached out to us to let us know that they rely on BackTrack so much that they would find support contracts extremely helpful.

As usual, please report bugs to us through our redmine ticket system for the fastest response. Don’t forget to also check our forums and wiki (will be updated in the next few days).

With Defcon and BlackHat over, the team here is slowly recovering from the cons. We have a ton of news and updates, including a delay of one week on the release of BackTrack 5 R1. We’d rather delay the release a bit more and make sure it’s perfect. To all those manically waiting – keep your pants on!
