Security software distributor Janteknology Pty Ltd has ceased trading following an internal security breach last weekend that destroyed company files and modified records.
Described as a "major security breach" in a brief statement issued by the company, Janteknology's managing director Glenn Miller was unwilling to provide details claiming it was now a police matter.
"The event has had a devastating impact on the company, and compounding the effects of the adverse conditions we have all been dealing with has forced Janteknology to voluntarily cease trading," the statement said.
"We are currently in the process of validating and restoring our records in order to clear a number of backorders. I realise that this is most inconvenient and difficult for those customers affected, however, we are doing our utmost to rectify the situation as quickly as possible."
The company thanked customers for their support over the past five years and advised them to contact vendors directly for product including Alt-N, eEye Digital Security, Exinda, GeCAD, Lockstep, PC Guardian, WebSpy and WinProxy.
