OXEN Technology’s Statement on SolarWinds Breach

2020 Cybersecurity Update from OXEN Technology

Is OXEN affected by the SolarWinds Breach?

OXEN has been following the SolarWinds breach since the news broke about it in December 2020. OXEN does not use the affected software internally, nor do we use it to support any client networks. As of today, there is no indication that any OXEN vendors have been affected.

As the SolarWinds investigation proceeds, we will continue to follow the developments to determine if it does impact OXEN, our clients, or our partners.

OXEN and the rest of the cybersecurity community will learn from this SolarWinds breach. We will take the lessons learned by SolarWinds to further advance the security of our own network as well as yours.

What is OXEN’s response to recent sophisticated attacks?

Both the FireEye and SolarWinds hacks are a sign of the more sophisticated and evolving cyberattacks predicted to come. At OXEN, we are continually advancing our cybersecurity posture to protect ourselves and our clients.

In Q4 of 2020 we rolled out our Endpoint Detection & Response (EDR) software along with a virtual Security Operations Center (SOC) to better protect client networks.

The response of our chosen vendors for our new offering has been reassuring to us and has helped us to see a clear distinction between traditional anti-virus and EDR/SOC services. While there is no way to ensure a network is 100% secure, these solutions provide our clients with the modern protection needed to defend against attacks.

We strongly encourage all organizations and businesses to review the security of their digital estate and to implement tools and systems such as EDR/SOC. Please contact our team if you would like to know more.
