TimeKeeper VelaSync Discontinuance Notice

Orolia’s partnership with FSMLabs is ending effective immediately and Orolia will no longer be selling TimeKeeper® software or the VelaSync™ with TimeKeeper® software embedded in it. While we are disappointed in the decision by FSMLabs to terminate this partnership, we are developing alternative and improved solutions for Orolia’s customers. Orolia is developing an upgraded version of the VelaSync™ – the PRISMA VelaSync™ – which uses Orolia’s own timing engine and user interface that has been in use on several other core Orolia timing products for many years.

Spectre and Meltdown Vulnerabilities (CVE-2016-5715, CVE-2017-5753, CVE-2017-5754)

Spectracom products are only susceptible if an attacker can successfully authenticate with the product and gain command line shell access. Malware is required to be run locally within the system to exploit these vulnerabilities. We are working to update our operating systems and software as they become available to resolve these potential vulnerabilities within the affected products.

More Info

New regulations from MiFID II in Europe to the Consolidated Audit Trail in the US mandate that reportable events must be timestamped to much more accurate levels than ever before and that regulated organizations must have a clear understanding of time for all information they are required to report. Europe’s MiFID II, in particular — which came into force on January 3, 2018 — is far more prescriptive with regards to timestamping, as defined by the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) within RTS 25.
