My business partner is the guy who deals with all the security issues involved in our business, so I rarely pay attention to the protective measures he’s taken to prohibit port scans, banning troublesome IP addresses and the like.

The company is Cyveillance, and they’ve probably sent their spybots to your sites recently too.
While they claim to be entirely above board, their operation seems… well… creepy.
