Company’s 26 other modules were not compromised

When Kaseya’s VSA product was targeted by a cyberattack over the U.S. Fourth of July holiday weekend, many customers were worried that other products in the Kaseya family had also been impacted. Kaseya reassured its community that the 26 other IT Complete modules were never compromised. Both the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) have confirmed Kaseya’s statements. Both agencies have been helping Kaseya with remediation efforts. 

“Today CISA and the FBI have confirmed that 26 of Kaseya’s IT Complete modules are safe and were never compromised,” said Fred Voccola, CEO, Kaseya. “Kaseya’s IT Complete solution consists of 27 different solutions that are purposely compartmentalized from each other to ensure the highest level of security, reliability, and continuity for our customers.”  

Many MSPs and IT professionals rely on Kaseya’s IT Complete suite of solutions to efficiently manage all their IT operations. Out of the 27 modules that make up the platform, only one – Kaseya VSA – was compromised.  

Additionally, Kaseya’s fast response to the incident ensured that fewer than 60 onsite premises customers and under 1,500 downstream businesses were compromised by the ransomware used in the attack. Each product team has verified that the 26 products were unaffected and continue to operate with full functionality.  

Kaseya is deeply committed to its customers and will continue the ongoing work to ensure all VSA customers are up and running as quickly as possible in the most secured environment in the industry.
