If you are an IT professional, your job may have just gotten a lot busier. A flaw was discovered in one of the Internet’s key encryption methods, potentially forcing a wide swath of websites to swap out the virtual keys that generate private connections between the sites and their customers. The flaw is called the The Heartbleed Bug. The vulnerability involves a serious bug in OpenSSL, the technology that powers encryption for two-thirds of web servers. More information can be obtained here: http://heartbleed.com/

Quantivate users are not at risk, and your data is secure, as our servers do not run the version of OpenSSL that contains the vulnerability.
