As the world watches Russia invade Ukraine, many of our customers are asking how this changes the cybersecurity landscape and Aiven's posture toward the potential for destructive cyber attacks. Aiven has been monitoring the situation closely as it unfolds. Maintaining customer trust remains our top priority.

We have taken the following actions:

  • Activated our Security Incident Response capability to a readiness state. At this time there are no active incidents, but our responders have assembled to ensure that we maintain a close watch on our detection and monitoring systems.

  • Consulted the leadership team regarding necessary preparations to ensure business continuity plans are up-to-date so that we are ready for any drastic changes in our operational stance.

  • Engaged with our key vendors and partner organizations to ensure that lines of communication are open and available should they be needed.

As a reminder for our customers:

  • All Aiven systems utilize multi-factor authentication, encryption at rest, and encryption in transit.

  • Aiven Technical Operations is staffed 24x7 from our 3 main geographical centres: EU-UK / CA-US / AU-NZ

  • Aiven's infrastructure operates primarily from Northern and Western Europe, however, it can be deployed programmatically in any of our global regions. We maintain synchronized replicas of our configuration and management data in Canada and Australia.

  • We offer our customers the opportunity to architect their systems using both high-availability and geographically dispersed data systems.

Despite active monitoring, we have not detected any unusual traffic patterns or evidence of common attack patterns. To ensure that we can maintain our standards of service monitoring and detection, we are actively working to increase our situational awareness as the situation evolves.

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to Aiven Support and we will answer them as quickly as possible.
