“We're not observing an increase in successful connections after rolling back a recent change. We're working to evaluate additional mitigation solutions while we investigate the root cause,” the vendor said.

“We’re rerouting traffic to alternate infrastructure to improve the user experience while we continue to investigate the issue.”
