We feel the need to make a full disclosure about the recent news of a hack of Solarwinds since we use the Solarwinds Remote Monitoring and Maintenance platform to manage our monthly clients. Based on a cyber incident write-up by FireEye, an enterprise security research firm, Solarwinds had one of their software packages called Orion compromised by files included in update files. This attack has effected many large organizations including many governmental agencies and larger firms worldwide. The software under attack is used by these larger organizations to monitor the performance of their networks even across multiple locations. This software is completely different from the product that we use and we have been assured by Solarwinds that no compromise of the Remote Monitoring and Maintenance platform has occurred.
We continue business as usual including allowing users to use this platform for remote access to their business. We continue to add further automation into the system to better monitor and maintain your networks and computers.
If your company is going to use full disk encryption or has compliance requirements that you need consulting for, then contact us for assistance.
