switch. Controls have been put in place at the edge of the State's network to
minimize the impact of the DDoS should it occur again. A more robust switch is
headed up to Wayne as we speak and should be put in service at around 2:30PM.
We're hoping the downtime for this switch out will be brief and will result in a
medium term resolution to the issue. We continue to press the vendor to
reevaluate their switch deployment plan to ensure robust service going
Again (and hopefully for nearly the last time), thank
you very much for your patience.
