Legacy Platforms

Most organizations have apps running on platforms that are no longer supported such as Java, Apache Tomcat and WebLogic. In fact the most widely used version of Java is not the most current. That’s because it’s too risky and expensive in most cases to rewrite an app’s code, despite known and unknown vulnerabilities across the entire software stack.

Waratek protects your legacy applications and legacy platforms, no matter what version of Java you use. With an easy to install .JAR file plugin you gain the advantages of a Java 8 virtual host container for legacy Java apps running in guest mode for Java 4, 5, 6 or 7.

After installation of the Waratek solution, identified vulnerabilities are mitigated:

  • Without code changes
  • Without prior knowledge of the application
  • Without slowing the app’s performance
