The latest Amalgam Insights paper: Providing a rapid response to Meltdown and Spectre for hybrid IT

This post was originally published here by casey pechan.

You may remember January 2018 and the month of Spectre and Meltdown. Unlike many flash-in-the-pan zero-day vulnerabilities that can be fixed with a simple patch, Spectre and Meltdown were revealed to be deep problems extending all the way to processor designs which have been sold since the 1990s. In other words, this was a real “oh sh*!” moment that is still being evaluated by nearly every major US technology organization.

And while Intel, IBM, and others continue to roll out patches in the coming weeks, we have a report that will give you some insight today. We sponsored this Amalgam Insights paper: Providing a rapid response to Meltdown and Spectre for hybrid IT, in order for our readers to have a comprehensive overview and understanding of the breadth of these vulnerabilities, and what to expect.

In this paper Amalgam analyst Tom Petrocelli breaks down:

  • Why Spectre and Meltdown are important
  • The scope of Spectre and Meltdown
  • Why security will be more challenging in a hybrid deployment model
