In today's interconnected digital landscape, ensuring the security of your systems and data is paramount. Recent events have underscored the importance of promptly addressing vulnerabilities to protect against potential exploits. One such instance involves an older version of Connectwise ScreenConnect, also known as ConnectWise Control, which has been identified as susceptible to exploitation.

At Atlas Technica we take the security of our systems and the data of our clients seriously. Our control instance is hosted by ConnectWise, and as soon as the vulnerability was discovered ConnectWise upgraded our system to the latest version, fortifying our defenses against potential threats.

After the upgrade, we conducted a thorough review of our system logs. This proactive measure allowed us to ascertain that our server was patched before any suspicious activity occurred. This rapid response not only safeguards our own data but also ensures the continued security of our clients' information.

However, it is essential to recognize that firms hosting their own instances of ConnectWise may be vulnerable if they are using older versions of ScreenConnect. If your organization falls into this category,  (Atlas clients do not) it is imperative to act promptly. ConnectWise has released a patch to address the vulnerability, and it is crucial for affected firms to upgrade their service instances to the latest version without delay.

By staying vigilant and promptly addressing vulnerabilities, organizations can mitigate the risks posed by potential exploits. Proactive measures such as regular system updates, robust monitoring protocols, and swift response to security advisories are essential components of a comprehensive cybersecurity strategy.

In conclusion, the recent vulnerability in older versions of Connectwise ScreenConnect serves as a reminder of the ever-present need to prioritize cybersecurity. At Atlas, we remain committed to safeguarding our systems and data, ensuring the continued trust and confidence of our clients. We encourage all organizations to remain vigilant, stay informed about potential vulnerabilities, and take proactive steps to protect their digital assets.
