By John Lim, CTO

As you may have heard, there are two major security vulnerabilities in the wild coined Spectre and Meltdown.  These two vulnerabilities may impact computer, phone and tablet processors dating back to 1995.  TekTegrity is working with major technology vendors to immediately address this situation.

What is TekTegrity doing for you?

  • We have mobilized our NOC team to handle the need to force software updates to over 6000 computers that we manage
  • As Microsoft releases the patches to address these vulnerabilities, we are testing them and pushing them out to you
  • Compatibility checks with Antivirus vendors are also being addressed and updates performed

 

What can you do to protect your personal computing devices or devices that TekTegrity does not manage?

  • Run Updates to your Antivirus Software Immediately
  • Run System Updates Immediately on your PC and Mac computers, phones, and tablets.

If you do have any further questions please feel free to reach out to us at support@tektegrity.com or 1.888.662.9086
