In light of the Solar Winds, how worried are you about supply chain issues with cloud service providers?

With companies like Microsoft and Amazon and Google that are providing more of the infrastructure and platform-as-a-service environment, there's got to be a way for them to try to build off of something that's more proprietary and harder to penetrate. Just to minimize the target for supply chain issues. That might make them safer and secure over time. But it feels like it's, I hate to say it, it feels like we're living in a Petri dish full of bad viruses. Maybe I'm just paranoid.

Most clients that I've talked to in the Bay Area focus on the cyber security attacks and what the employees are doing that could cause harm. But when we think about all of the integrations that we have with cloud services, there are hundreds and hundreds of different applications that are used every day for different functions. You are just trusting how reliable they are. I don't think there's much you can do about it. I mean, you have a firewall obviously, but that's it.
