Anexinet Exec: Lack Of Monitoring In SolarWinds Hack Is ‘Scary’
Dave Mahoney, enterprise services architect at the solution provider powerhouse, tells CRN that a cybersecurity strategy ‘actually needs to be used and implemented’ to prevent attacks such as this.
Most companies talk a good game about how much monitoring and auditing they do for cyberattacks–but flagrant incidents such as the SolarWinds breach and subsequent spread of malware to thousands of customers suggest many companies still have a lot of work to do.
That’s the message from Dave Mahoney, enterprise services architect at Blue Bell, Pa.-based Anexinet, No. 212 on CRN’s Solution Provider 500. Mahoney spoke with CRN as the fallout from the SolarWinds hack continued to grow and Microsoft disclosed that a second group may have also breached SolarWinds Orion, separately from the suspected Russian hackers behind the initial breach of the network monitoring platform.
