TPG discloses compromise of TrustedCloud platform – Cloud – Security

TPG Telecom mentioned that a legacy IT-as-a-support system that was due to be decommissioned in August was breached by unknown attackers.

The telco mentioned in a monetary submitting [pdf] that the TrustedCloud support “was compromised in a new cyber incident”.

TrustedCloud was obtained in TPG’s 2011 buyout of on-need services company IntraPower.

It provides IT-as-a-support “built on [a] FlexPod cloud computing infrastructure system, made and sent by NetApp, Cisco and VMware”.

TPG did not say how the system was breached, but mentioned “there are only a number of remaining customers” on it, owing to the intended closure of the support in August this 12 months.

It mentioned that two consumers have been impacted and that they have been being supplied guidance. 

The firm added that a forensic investigation confirmed that other TrustedCloud consumers have been not impacted.

TPG mentioned that TrustedCloud was “hosted in a standalone atmosphere that is individual from our telecommunications networks and other systems”.

“The incident has not impacted consumers from any of our other brand names, items or services,” TPG mentioned.

Although the support was due to be shut down, TPG mentioned it had bolstered “cyber stability defences throughout our whole business” as a result of the incident.
