9. SolarWinds Breach Doesn’t Impact Company’s MSP Business

While hackers over the past two years have taken advantage of the tools MSPs rely on to manage customer IT systems, the tools utilized in this breach do not appear to be linked to SolarWinds’ MSP business. The Orion platform supports SolarWinds’ longtime IT infrastructure management business and doesn’t appear to be connected to the SolarWinds MSP business built via acquisitions in recent years.

SolarWinds MSP said it isn’t aware of any impact to its remote monitoring and management (RMM), N-Central and associated products from the attack on Orion, President John Pagliuca said in a security advisory posted Sunday evening. Pagliuca would take over as SolarWinds MSP CEO if the proposed spin-off of the business into a standalone company that has been under consideration for months happens.

Just four days before news of this colossal hack went public, SolarWinds named Pulse Secure’s Sudhakar Ramakrishna as its next CEO. During his five years leading Pulse Secure, Ramakrishna had to deal with hackers exploiting a widely known flaw in the company’s VPN appliance to carry out ransomware attacks many months after a patch had already been rolled out.
