Ariad values the trust that our clients have continually shown us, and we reciprocate this trust by engaging in best practices to ensure that our client data is safe and secure.

On October 14th 2014, a global security vulnerability in SSLv3 protocol for websites was discovered. It is affectionately being called “Poodle”. This vulnerability may allow hackers to potentially get access to unencrypted sensitive user data. The only available solution is to disable support for SSLv3 protocol on all servers. This has no impact on any modern browsers. However, Internet Explorer 6 users will no longer be able to access HTTPS websites.

What does this mean for our clients? It means that IE6 can no longer access HTTPS websites/pages that are hosted by Ariad. Only 0.2% of the Canadian market is using IE6, but we wanted to ensure that our clients are aware of the fix. There will be negligible disruption to service, and the change will be virtually unnoticeable. There is currently no evidence that any sites, servers, or Ariad customer data have been compromised. 

We take the security and stability of our client data very seriously here at Ariad. We are grateful for the confidence you have shown in us and we will continue to keep you apprised of any new developments.
