Cisco loses valuable customer data following major lapse in server management

Cisco has confirmed that it has lost some valuable customer data after its engineering team made a configuration error while handling the North American object storage service.

Cisco has apologised for the loss of customer data and expressed hope that it would be able to recover some of it soon.

In the second such instance in two months, Cisco said that its engineering team 'made a configuration change that applied an erroneous policy' to the company's North American object storage, thus deleting certain data uploaded to the server prior to 11:20 AM PST on 3rd August.
