HP admits to backdoors in storage products

This is fairly common practice in the industry. Some vendors (EMC) may have additional security measures in place (ESRS) to access the equipment but most large storage vendors have vendor accounts on the arrays, many hidden from their customers.

Many start ups are taking this more seriously and I've seen an increase of devices from start up that require you to manually start a reverse tunnel to allow them access to the arrays. Ask your large vendors to start utilizing similar practices for better security.
