managing middleware security and performance

Whatever commercial or unsupported open source products you’re using in your operational environment, it’s vital to have a clearly defined middleware patching strategy that is not only aligned with vendor patch release cycles, but which won’t compromise business continuity in your operational environment.

Whether you’re an Oracle Fusion Middleware customer faced with implementing SOA bundle patches or WebLogic patch set updates, managing one-off and cumulative JBoss patch cycles, or implementing the latest Tomcat revisions, responding to ongoing security and performance vulnerabilities through middleware patching is a business-critical part of your operational support strategy.

Because our middleware consultancy team is so closely integrated with our team of in-house support engineers, we not only offer clients middleware patch alerting and patch cycle management expertise, but back this up with extensive experience of evaluating and deploying patches into operational environments.

  • Minimise security vulnerabilities
  • Reduce exposure to performance issues
  • Maintain business continuity
  • Minimise downtime
  • Optimise stability
  • Mitigate risk

Understanding the significance of new patch releases in the context of your middleware infrastructure, the bugs or vulnerabilities they are designed to rectify - and the implications of operational deployment - is essential to any middleware patching engagement.

Our middleware consultants are experts at evaluating, planning and implementing patch deployments across a whole spectrum of open source and enterprise java products and infrastructure. With their understanding of the risks to operational service disruption, they’ll assess your specific requirements, create an appropriate patching schedule, and then deliver the work either on-premise or via remote engagement.
