Equinix reports full containment of recent cyber security incident

Any mention of a compromise of a hosting company makes me nervous. Equinix provide the raw infrastructure for many other hosting companies, telcos and enterprises. They were (probably still are) a main supplier of capacity to the hosting business I worked in a few years ago.

Global interconnection and data center company Equinix Inc (NASDAQ:EQIX) has managed to tackle a recent cyber incident.

An update provided by the company on September 17, 2020 at 7:50 PM PDT says that the mitigation efforts have been successful. The company continues to investigate and interact directly with employees, customers and partners as appropriate.
