SAN DIEGO, Dec. 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Shareholder Rights Law Firm Johnson Fistel, LLP is investigating potential violations of the federal securities laws by Alteryx, Inc. (NYSE: AYX) ("Alteryx") and certain of its officers. Alteryx provides self-service data analytics software platform that enables organizations to enhance business outcomes and the productivity of their business analysts.
On December 19, 2017, UpGuard, a cyber risk company, reported that Alteryx left a database containing sensitive information on 123 million American households unsecured and open to the public. Chris Vickery, UpGuard's cyber risk research director, told HuffPost he stumbled across the 36-gigabyte database during a routine search of Amazon Web Services' storage "buckets," which houses data for numerous companies of all sizes. Vickery stated, "If you're an American, your information probably was exposed."
According to CNET and the HuffPost, the databases contain addresses, phone numbers, number of children living in your household and their age ranges and gender; your age, occupational, marital, and educational status; your mortgage and many other detailed types of information about your household.
If you have information that could assist in this investigation, including past employees and others, or if you are an Alteryx shareholder or consumer and are interested in learning more about the investigation or your legal rights and remedies, please contact Jim Baker [email protected]) at 619-814-4471.
