Equinix announced they have reached a milestone in their investigations of a ransomware attack that affected their internal systems.
“Our containment and mitigation efforts have progressed well since the detection of the incident,” said Equinix in a statement.
The world’s largest data center and colocation provider believes they have prevented the release of any data associated with the incident.
“Our data centers and services to customers have not been impacted by the incident and our internal systems are rapidly approaching full restoration,” added Equinix.
Equinix suffered the ransomware attack on Wednesday 9 September.
Their teams took immediate action to address the cyberattack by contacting law enforcement.
Since then, the data center provider has made daily investigation updates, which has currently found no customers’ operations or data on their equipment.
As most of their customers operate their own equipment within Equinix data centers, this attack is said to have had no impact on equipment or data.
“The security of the data in our systems is always a top priority and we intend to take all necessary actions, as appropriate, based on the results of our investigation,” the statement reported.
Equinix has promised to provide any more updates as it becomes available.
