Item 7.01

Regulation FD Disclosure.

On September 9, 2020, Equinix, Inc. (“Equinix”) disclosed that we were investigating a security incident involving ransomware on certain of our internal systems.

On September 16, 2020, we disclosed on our corporate blog that our containment and mitigation efforts have progressed well since the detection of the incident and we have reached a milestone that we believe will prevent the release of any data associated with this incident.

While we continue to investigate the security incident, our data centers and our service offerings, including managed services, remain fully operational, and the incident has not affected our ability to support our customers. Our internal systems approach full restoration. The security of the data in our systems is always a top priority and we intend to take all necessary actions, as appropriate, based on the results of our investigation.

The information furnished in Item 7.01 of this Form 8-K attached hereto shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”) or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act or the Exchange Act, except as expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.
