The technology that runs your business.
As you probably know, researchers recently uncovered Meltdown and Spectre – two related chip vulnerabilities – that can leave almost any device vulnerable to cyber attackers trying to access and exploit sensitive information.
Zones security experts emphasise that fixes are already in the works for Meltdown but may not be available yet for all your devices. Fixes for Spectre may require hardware changes. Either way, we’re here to help.
Intel has stated that they are committed to working closely “with other technology companies, including AMD, ARM Holdings and several operating system vendors, to develop an industry-wide approach to mitigate this issue promptly and constructively.”
Apple has already released mitigations in iOS 11.2, macOS 10.13.2, and tvOS 11.2 to help defend against Meltdown. The release of a patch for the Safari web browser on its iPhone, iPads, and Macs to help defend against Spectre is expected soon.
