DBCare - Live Patching for Databases | tuxcare.com

Database Vulnerability Patching & Maintenance with DBCare

Automatically patch database vulnerabilities while your databases are live and running — no waiting for a maintenance window.

DBCare makes continuous database updates a reality.

DBCare keeps your applications running while your database backend is updated, enhancing database performance, reliability, Cybersecurity and compliance. DBCare is not simply a reduction in complexity or a simplification of processes, it’s a complete redefinition of how data Cybersecurity operations are executed, which eliminates waiting for maintenance windows.

How DBCare works

  • At preset intervals, an agent wakes up and checks for the existence of new updates for the running database.
  • When an update to address a new vulnerability is found, it is downloaded to the system.
  • The DBCare agent momentarily freezes the database processes in a ‘safe’ mode and applies the patch in memory.
  • Live Patching happens transparently to apps and users connected to the database and to the database itself. No connections are dropped or queries interrupted.
  • Updates can be stored in a local repository (called ePortal) inside your Cybersecurity perimeter and managed centrally. The protected systems do not need to have external network access.


  • The pricing is based on each use case. Contact us for a quote
