SpireTech does not use any SolarWinds software.  However, the longer-term effects of this hack are likely not going to be known for a while – if at all – because SolarWinds was used by many government agencies and larger enterprise companies.

As of this point, we know of no customer-affecting data breaches as a result of this hack.  However, with a hack of this magnitude, it is important to consider the larger supply chain – perhaps even your vendor’s vendors.  For example, Microsoft makes extensive use of contractors.  Microsoft has disclosed they were affected by the SolarWinds hack and there was unauthorized read-only access to their source code repository.  No access to customer data has been reported or disclosed as of this writing.
