What is live patching?

Automated Linux vulnerability patching with no reboots or downtime required

Conventional vulnerability patching often requires IT teams to reboot the Linux kernel to apply patches, but not with TuxCare. Our live patching solutions deploy patches in memory while the kernel is running, so you can patch all popular enterprise Linux distributions, databases, shared libraries and more without needing to reboot or schedule downtime.
