Why Live Patch with KernelCare Enterprise?

Patching that Helps You Always Stay Compliant

By deploying patches as soon as they’re available, you can more easily satisfy a number of compliance requirements related to vulnerability management, including CIS Controls, NIST CSF, PCI DSS, and ISO27001.

One Solution for Your Whole Linux Ecosystem

KernelCare is the only solution on the market that can live patch all popular Linux distributions, helping organizations enjoy the benefits of live patching while avoiding having to pay for costly vendor-specific live patching solutions or support packages.

Outlast Your OS Vendor's Live Patching Limits

KernelCare allows customers to maintain live patching of their existing kernels for as long as they need, ensuring continuity of live patching beyond the 3-6 months typically offered by OS vendors’ proprietary solutions and eliminating the need to align maintenance windows with vendors’ release schedules.

Customize Patch Rollouts in Line with Your Policies

KernelCare gives system administrators a single transparent interface to manage automated patching – including easy integration with your existing IT automation tools for a seamless management experience.
