Kaseya VSA Ransomware attack

We at ITNS Consulting would like to commend Kaseya for their amazing transparency during this difficult time.  As many of you may know Kaseya suffered a ransomware attack on an epic scale.  Their quick response to this attack spared hundreds of thousands of businesses worldwide from suffering a dismal fate.  We were notified within an hour of the onset of the attack and Kaseya has remained extremely transparent and communicative throughout the entire process.  We would like to emphasize Kaseya put their customers first by reaching out to industry experts and their communities for assistance in addressing this breach.  Ransomware has become a global issue, which requires a global response.  In the world we live in “it’s not whether a breach will happen, but when”, and how your business will recover.  ITNS Consulting is proud to be a Kaseya VSA partner, and we are one of the companies that were protected by Kaseya’s swift actions.  Their quick response to the ransomware attack on Kaseya VSA stopped this attack from affecting any of our clients. 

We commend Kaseya CEO Fred Voccola, and the entire Kaseya staff in taking quick action and reaching out to other industry leaders for assistance.  We would also like to thank our partners at Huntress and FireEye for the assistance they have provided in this time of need.  And let us not forget a special thank you to the FBI and Homeland Security for continuing to do their very best to sort this out and keep us safe.

Their cumulative actions illustrate how having an in-depth incident response plan in place and being able to execute it with great efficiency can limit the reach and impact of a cyber attack.  This is a critical lesson that all businesses regardless of size can learn from. 

To those businesses who were impacted we can only sympathize and hope you come back twice as strong as before.  If you find you are in need of assistance, we are here to help any way we can.  If you need to contact ITNS Consulting, please call 608-563-1975 or find us on the web at https://itnsconsulting.com
