  • SolarWinds was a piece of software that was supposed to protect and monitor your environment. And now you’re in a situation whe re you have to monitor the monitors

  • It’s a question of SolarWinds not doing their job. Effectively not really understanding how software was getting designed an d b uilt within their environment. A fundamental reason why SolarWinds’ breach was so bad is that SolarWinds by its definition lives inside the data center and co nne cts to data center and IT resources. The fact that it itself in that infrastructure was compromised really gives an adversary the best possible opportunity to mov e t hrough that network

  • I don’t want to pile on the victim in this case on SolarWinds; I think they were probably doing what everybody else was doin g. And they just happened to be the company that some bad guy got interested in.
