What is a Sub-processor?

A sub-processor is a third-party data processor engaged by SolarWinds, including SolarWinds Affiliates, processing Personal Data.

Due Diligence

SolarWinds MSP recognizes that the use of sub-processors creates potential risks that must be properly managed. Before entering into any third-party relationships, we take deliberate steps to conduct an assessment of risk arising from the vendor relationship.

Any sub-processor who has access to SolarWinds MSP Personal Data are expected to demonstrate their security policies, processes, and procedures and prove that they are able to provide adequate protection of such data, including against misuse or compromise. For more information, see our Vendor Data Protection Requirements page.
