Live patching presents opportunities for MSSPs to better protect their customers and generate more revenue.

Through its automated live security patching solutions and long-term support services for Linux and open source software, TuxCare allows thousands of organizations to remediate vulnerabilities for increased security and compliance.

Live patching can now enable MSSPs to automatically apply the latest patches for their customers without needing to reboot systems. That helps SMBs stay on top of NIST 800-53 security and privacy requirements with less effort or impact.

This week, TuxCare announced it received top honors in this year’s Cybersecurity Excellence Awards. The company’s KernelCare Enterprise solution took home the award program’s gold award in the security automation category.

“The KernelCare Enterprise live-patching service answers countless organizations’ long-standing problems surrounding the dependence on scheduled maintenance windows,” Jackson said. “Not only does this highly cost-effective service bring new levels of efficiency. But it arms organizations with never-before-available peace of mind since it largely removes any delays between a discovered vulnerability and its patch implementation.”

In January, TuxCare launched its OEM Partner Program to give OEM partners its KernelCare Enterprise and LibCare solutions. OEMs can add automated vulnerability patching for Linux kernels and shared libraries into their own product lines.
