The Pharos Security Team has been watching with heightened awareness the developing cyberattack on federal and corporate computing systems by way of vulnerabilities found in several versions of the SolarWinds Orion software platform.
Pharos does not use SolarWinds Orion software for internal or cloud-based systems. We have completed an audit of all computing platforms within Pharos to ensure that the SolarWinds product is not resident on any devices within our IT infrastructure.
As such, we are confident that neither Pharos nor any of our customers are exposed to this threat by the use of Pharos products and services.
We will continue to monitor the situation and the actions and directives emerging from the joint activity of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI). We will embrace any actions recommended or required.
As the situation evolves, Pharos will continue to update our website and inform customers should any concerns arise related to our internal, cloud, or deployed products in customer locations.
