Performio Security Update For Meltdown & Spectre
Is my sales comp data at risk?
By now many of us have come across articles about updating our computers and phones to protect our data from the Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities, which you should do. But what about your sales comp data in the cloud?
The Meltdown & Spectre vulnerabilities allow rogue applications to access other processes and memory running on the same device, potentially creating a leak in your passwords and sensitive data. Meltdown and Spectre affect most modern processors, which includes the cloud.
Performio takes security seriously and strives to protect our customer’s data. All workstations at Performio have been patched to protect against those vulnerabilities.
Your sales comp data is safe!
Our application runs on Amazon Web Services’ servers, which have been confirmed to have these underlying infrastructure patched successfully.
According to AWS “All instances across the Amazon EC2 fleet are protected from all known threat vectors from the CVEs previously listed.”
As an additional precaution, we’ve also updated the kernel on our instances. We will continue to monitor any new development regarding these vulnerabilities closely and will run further patches if necessary.
If you have any concerns or queries, please do not hesitate to contact your account manager.
