The SolarWinds product Orion was the target of a recent cyber-attack. It is not a software used by smaller companies like our clients. Orion is used by big firms like Ford, Microsoft, AT&T, NASA, , Liz Claiborne, McDonalds, etc.
We use a SolarWinds product for online cloud backup. The backup software was not affected or targeted with the hack. SolarWinds has confirmed this in multiple email statements and news releases.
Even so, we have begun rolling the encryption keys on backups sets “Just to be safe”.
At this point we do not feel any other action is necessary. We use SolarWinds to back our company data as well and still feel confident our data is safe.
If you desire to switch to a different backup solution please let us know. We think SolarWinds backup is still one of the best solutions available.
Switching may not be as good or cheap, but there are always alternatives!
