Providing a Rapid Response to Meltdown and Spectre for Hybrid IT


Meltdown and Spectre are only the latest exploits of vulnerabilities in processors, operating systems, and platform stacks. and they are certainly not expected to be the last. As the open source and vendor operating system community mitigate this vulnerability with updates to their software, large enterprises will need to identify where they will need to be applied. With vendors rolling out patches across weeks, knowing what has and hasn’t been updated will become a difficult task. Failure to keep up, however, will leave critical systems open to attack.

The key to insuring that systems are safe from the Meltdown and Spectre exploits – safe from all exploits in a software stack – is persistent, continuous, automated monitoring and analysis of the software that makes up large enterprise systems. Read this report to learn more.
