VIAVI and Data Privacy

In a world where valuable data is increasingly proliferated and can so easily be misused, VIAVI places importance on protection of personal and customer data and takes its responsibility seriously to securely handle this data. VIAVI is committed to complying with all local legal requirements relating to the handling of data in all territories in which we operate.

Response to SolarWinds Sunburst Security Incident

At VIAVI, we have been closely following the effects of the SolarWinds hack.

We are a SolarWinds customer and have been actively reviewing any indicators of this actor. To date, we have not found evidence of compromise or exposure to any VIAVI services or customer data. Our investigations, which are ongoing, have found absolutely no indications that the malware was activated in any VIAVI environments.
