Amazing Moments in Cyber Security: The SolarWinds Awards

May 5, 2021

Believe it or not.

In a gem of an understatement, SolarWinds’ Sojung Lee called 2020 a “challenging year.” Lee made this assessment at his company’s recent APJ Q2 Virtual Partner Briefing where, as ChannelLife reports, “SolarWinds Celebrates Channel Partners in APJ Channel Awards.” Yes, that company gives out awards. We’re told:

“The awards recognize SolarWinds’ partners and distributors for their achievements in delivering services and expertise to customers. SolarWinds Asia Pacific and Jap vice president sales, Sojung Lee, says that 2020 was a challenging year but SolarWinds partners remained resilient.”

Resilient—yes, they would have to be. Readers can navigate to the brief write-up for the list of recipients, if curious. We just find it remarkable this list even exists at this point in time. What about these “winners’” security? We don’t know and maybe SolarWinds does not either. Sales, not security, could be job one.
