[New Webinar] CentOS 7 End of Life Strategy: Security for Today & Years into the Future – Dec 6th @ 10:30 AM EST/4 PM CET RSVP
Why SysAdmins Love Live Patching
Adopting live patching (an automated, non-disruptive vulnerability patching approach) enables SysAdmins to minimize their patching workload by putting CVE patches on autopilot across their organization’s Linux estate – from the kernel to shared libraries, IoT devices, and more.
To learn more, chat with a TuxCare Linux security expert.
Don’t Want to Spend a Ton of Time Implementing a New Tool?
KernelCare Enterprise is simple (and quick) to add to your toolkit – all you need is a
short installation script and a few customization steps, then you will start
automatically receiving non-disruptive CVE patches.
TuxCare’s KernelCare Enterprise
Delivers live patches to most popular Linux distributions
Organizations cut costs drastically by implementing TuxCare’s affordable live patching option
Users can truly go rebootless by extending live patching to shared libraries, IoT devices, QEMU, and more
Distro Vendor Live Patching
Only delivers live patches to a specific distribution or small number of related distributions
Users must purchase pricey premium support packages to add live patching
Users often still need to reboot to apply patches to shared libraries
What Else Does TuxCare Live Patch?
With the LibCare add-on, your team can keep critical shared system libraries, like OpenSSL and glibc, updated with the latest vulnerability patches.
TuxCare delivers vulnerability patches to several end-of-life Linux distributions, including CentOS 6, CentOS 7, CentOS 8, CentOS Stream 8, Debian 10, Ubuntu 16.04, Ubuntu 18.04, Oracle Linux 6, and software languages including Python, PHP, and Java.
Extend your security lifecycle to 16 years and elevate your AlmaLinux experience with affordable commercial support from TuxCare, which includes live patching, break-and-fix support, extended security updates with continuous FIPS compliance, and pay-as-you-go application support.
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.
