Evernote has been hacked, forcing the online note-taking software Relevant Products/Services to reset passwords for its 50 million users, although any password data Relevant Products/Services that was accessed was protected with encryption. What does this mean for enterprise IT security Relevant Products/Services?

“In our security investigation, we have found no evidence that any of the content you store in Evernote was accessed, changed or lost,” Evernote’s Dave Engberg said in a blog post. “We also have no evidence that any payment information Relevant Products/Services for Evernote Premium or Evernote Business customers was accessed.”

Richard S. Westmoreland, a Level III security analyst and team lead at SilverSky, told us the breach was limited and Evernote should be given credit for its fast response and communication Relevant Products/Services to its customers.
