Runtime Vulnerability Patching

It doesn't need to be difficult to patch legacy and critical enterprise applications

Speed is of the essence

Every security patch issued by Oracle, Microsoft, IBM, Apache or any other software developer starts a relay race. One team is the malicious hackers who seek web applications containing the new vulnerability to steal an organization’s data.
It may take attackers a few days or weeks to find a victim, but once inside a system, it will be nearly 200 days before the attack is noticed and another 60+ days before the attack is stopped.

Binary Equivalent Security Without Code Changes

Traditional approaches to web application security that rely on heuristics cannot help you win the race against attacks from known (or unknown) software flaws. With Waratek, a virtual patch can be applied within hours of the release of a routine or emergency patch, dramatically reducing your risk profile and attack surface.

Waratek’s unique approach to application security allows teams to apply routine and emergency security updates without taking an app out of production.


Vulnerabilities are mitigated immediately and automatically – allowing Dev teams to focus on permanent fixes for the highest level vulnerabilities.


With Waratek you reduce the time and effort spent on patch updates, saving time and money and freeing your Dev team to work on innovation.


Application code is never touched and restarting the app is not required. This eliminates the risk associated with patching your mission critical apps.

Remediating years of vulnerabilities and updating an out-of-date Java JRE without changing a single line of code.
