Meltdown-Spectre Threat: Microsoft Develops New Tools for Security

Microsoft delivers free Meltdown-Spectre assessment tool for IT pros – ZD Net Article

“Protecting an organization from attacks based on two widespread and potentially deadly security vulnerabilities requires monitoring software, firmware, and antivirus updates. New capabilities in Microsoft’s Windows Analytics service display that status on a single dashboard.”

If your worried about security of your network (especially with Meltdown-Spectre), Microsoft’s new tools offer protection.  If you are using Office 365 your a setup up already as the backbone for the tool is already in place.  If you have the EMS add on and you have deployed Intune, your almost there already.
