Live patching is a method that allows you to patch a system’s kernel without the need for a reboot. It works by applying patches on the fly, which means critical updates can be delivered immediately without interrupting running applications or services. This ensures system security and high availability.

Our live patching solution is designed to be compatible with a wide range of Linux distributions and kernel versions. It integrates seamlessly with most existing infrastructures, however, we recommend checking the detailed compatibility list on our documentation page or contacting support for specific inquiries.

Live patching allows administrators to promptly apply security patches to the kernel as soon as they are released, minimizing the window of vulnerability. This process is handled without a reboot, ensuring continuous protection against security threats.

Yes, you have full control over the patch management process. You can choose which patches to apply and schedule them for a convenient time. Our management dashboard provides a comprehensive view and control over the patching process, including reporting and rollback capabilities.
