Huntress CEO Kyle Hanslovan To MSPs On Kaseya Ransomware Attack: ‘Get It Together Or Go Out Of Business’

Kyle Hanslovan, the co-founder and CEO of Huntress, the threat detection provider that has played a key role in alerting MSPs to the REvil ransomware attack on Kaseya, says the time has come for MSP vendors and MSPs to ‘get it together or go out of business.’

How many MSPs are sitting there waiting for the all clear?

Kaseya has 17,000 MSPs and they have told everyone to shut off the VSA. I would assume that 16,950 of them are waiting for them to turn this on for the all clear.

I am not suggesting MSPs turn on their servers. I am suggesting that those impacted start the recovery. That means there is over 16,000 MSPs waiting to know if they can start business.

What stinks is that anybody outside the U.S. started doing business today.

You have tracked the MSPs that have been impacted around the globe. What regions have been hardest hit?

We have seen partners hit in the U.S., European Union, Australia/New Zeland and Latin America. In those four regions we have seen at least one MSP. We haven’t seen any in APAC (Asia Pacific/Japan).

What is key for MSPs that are still grappling with this Kaseya MSP ransomware attack?

Don’t underestimate the importance of working with Kaseya’s attorney. They are going to need to not take that risk. But at the end of the day these are their businesses.

Compromised MSPs should be focusing on client restoration - not themselves.

We are waiting for Kaseya’s all clear for those that have been compromised. Unfortunately, some MSPs are treating that as they have to wait for everybody’s restoration.
