Our near term focus is on delivering high quality mitigations to protect our customers infrastructure from these exploits. We’re working to incorporate silicon-based changed to future products that will directly address the Spectre and Meltdown threats in hardware. And those products will begin appearing later this year.
(Gotta wonder if they mean to tackle both at the same time, and whether that is an inclusive ‘and’, but still.
Following on: does this imply ‘more lead time’, does this mean ‘we’ll be fixing the easy stuff this year’, or is this actually possible with them having enough money to throw at the problem?)
