6. SolarWinds’ Tentacles Reach Deep Into The U.S. Government

The diversity of SolarWinds’ customer base has sparked concern within the U.S. intelligence community that other government agencies could be at risk, Reuters reported Sunday. SolarWinds’ stock plunged $3.48 (14.77 percent) in trading Monday morning to $20.08 per share, which is the lowest the company’s stock has traded since Oct. 2.

SolarWinds said on its website that its technology is used by the Pentagon, all five branches of the U.S. military, the State Department, NASA, the NSA, the Postal Service, the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration, the Department of Justice, and the Office of the President of the United States. SolarWinds said its technology is also used by hundreds of colleges and universities worldwide.

In the private sector, SolarWinds counts all five of the top U.S. accounting firms, all 10 of the top 10 U.S. telecommunications companies, and more than 425 of the U.S. Fortune 500 among its base of clients. All told, SolarWinds said its products and services are used by more than 300,000 customers worldwide.
