KernelCare eliminates the need for staying up at night to deliver kernel patch updates, or coordinating downtime with your business units and various IT departments and locations.

KernelCare applies security patches automatically to a running kernel. Live installation of security patches takes nanoseconds, doesn't alter the performance of servers, doesn't require a reboot, and quickly delivers a better, more secure Linux.
