Customer advisory regarding AP ENPS and the discovery of the Spectre and Meltdown security risk

|

AP ENPS urges our customers to continue their best practices around rapid installation of Microsoft security patches for Windows servers.

In practice, this means installing Windows security patches as soon as your corporate information security policy allows and subject to appropriate testing. This advice fits within AP ENPS’s traditional guidance to our customers about installing Windows patches. 

We continue to test AP ENPS functionality both with and without the Spectre and Meltdown patches and we do not anticipate any negative impact from installation of the patches. If you have a specific question, please contact the AP ENPS team at info@enps.com or on our 24-hour support hotline.
