Plesk offers KernelCare, helps customers keep servers secure and without downtime

Zurich, Switzerland, November 29, 2016 – Plesk, a company focused on delivering the most complete web development environment, today announced the availability of KernelCare for Plesk inside their extensions catalog. It is now possible for Plesk customers to purchase KernelCare directly from the control panel to deliver better security and alleviate reboots for ultimate server uptime.

KernelCare, developed by CloudLinux, supports most popular Linux distributions and provides timely kernel security updates to the live server without reboots. With KernelCare, Plesk users will no longer need to bring their servers down due to security patching. It installs in minutes with a single line of code and without a reboot, and allows companies abolish current and newly discovered kernel vulnerabilities.

“Security concerns and uptime are top of mind for many companies, and thus we are excited to have added support for KernelCare within Plesk” says Lukas Hertig, CMO & VP Marketing & Alliances of Plesk. “Offering better and more secure services to our customers is our top priority, and with KernelCare, we can ensure that not only our customers are happier - they can focus on running their businesses instead of patching their servers.”
