News Direct today announced that it has not been impacted by the latest cybersecurity crisis revelation that at least 60,000 global users of Microsoft's Exchange email platform have been hacked by a Chinese group that Microsoft refers to as "Hafnium".

News Direct cites its reliance on cloud-based systems, part of its "lean architecture" strategy, as a primary reason why it has not been affected by this breach. Leveraging a highly economical, cloud-based technological infrastructure for both its client-facing platform and its internal systems such as e-mail, News Direct is able to provide its users with an array of modern advantages. These include a custom-built, automated workflow and operating a state-of-the-art news and content distribution platform devoid of the high overhead costs of the past, thereby allowing those savings to be passed through to the customer. But perhaps most importantly, this approach enables the company to more effectively respond to today's unique security challenges.

"As too many have learned the hard way, nobody is bullet-proof, and it would be foolish to claim otherwise. Nonetheless, we believe that News Direct is the safest news distribution platform available today," noted Gregg Castano, Founder/CEO. "As a cloud service provider, our belief in using cloud-based technology for both our own platform and for our internal systems was a fortuitous strategy which has enabled us to avoid getting caught up in this most recent breach."
