Your security and privacy are our top priorities at SolarWinds.
Our security strategy covers all aspects of our business, including:
Secure Development Lifecycle
We follow a defined methodology to develop software designed to increase the resiliency and security of our products.
We strive to implement and maintain appropriate administrative, physical, and technical safeguards, security processes, procedures, and standards designed to protect the confidentiality and security of our customer data.
Vendor Data Protection Requirements
Third-party vendors are used to provide SolarWinds with various goods and services to help facilitate its business. Before entering any third-party relationships, we take deliberate steps to assess the risk related to the vendor relationship. We take care to understand the compliance, reputational, strategic, operational, and transactional risks relating to a particular vendor before entering into a contractual relationship.

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and other privacy regulations
We have made information security and data privacy foundational principles of everything we do, and we recognize the importance of passing regulations to advance information security and data privacy for citizens of the EU and elsewhere in the world. By designing products with privacy and security in mind, we are able to provide you with products that help you meet various aspects of these compliance regimes and to support you in creating a more secure environment.
