On Dec 7th around 7:42 am PST, SecureAuth detected that several services were encountering issues and customers were impacted. Upon further investigation, the root cause of the service interruption was due to a wide-spread outage in AWS US-East-1 region. At 8:39 am PST, SecureAuth switched the MFA Cloud Services to the backup cluster hosted in AWS’s US-West-2 region. However, IdPs that run from the AWS US-East-1 region could not be moved and certain customers were continuing to be impacted. AWS started recovery around 2 PM PST and SecureAuth’s services started to recover as well. The AWS US-East-1 region eventually became fully functional around Dec 8th 1:32 PM PST. SecureAuth will engage with AWS to discuss the root cause of the outage and devise plans for future reliability improvements.
