TuxCare, one of the global innovator in enterprise-grade cybersecurity for Linux, recently announced the launch and general availability of its Python Extended Lifecycle Support (ELS) service.
Often selected for artificial intelligence, machine learning, data analytics and complex websites, Python currently stands as the world’s most popular programming language. The new TuxCare Python ELS service is easily deployed and aims to breathe new life into code written for out-of-support Python versions dramatically simplifying the life of personnel who otherwise face time-consuming tasks related to deprecated and removed functionality.
Enabling organizations to avoid any performance-related issues associated with changes, the ELS service also allows existing code to run as-is, simply on a more secure foundation that automatically receives patches for critical security vulnerabilities.
“Significantly lengthening the lifetime of your vital Python applications through a TuxCare ELS not only makes sense from a security posture perspective, but it can bring time savings and cost reductions during a time that makes a big difference for an organization,” said Jim Jackson, President and Chief Revenue Officer at TuxCare. “We often find that DevOps groups and their extended management team label TuxCare as a notable business enabler and application ROI extender that pays for itself and much more. “We’re proud to play that distinct role as the extended lifecycle innovator within a vital cybersecurity ecosphere.”
Python 2.7, which became unsupported in 2020, is fully addressed by the new TuxCare Python ELS.
