Centralized Linux Patch Management with Spacewalk

Patch management is an integral component of an organization's information security program used to mitigate the risk from security vulnerabilities that are inherent in all operating systems. Spacewalk is the leading free Open Source Red Hat and Oracle Linux patch management solution that can be used to effectively manage and distribute operating system RPMs and patches. With Spacewalk, you can configure Oracle RPM repositories, as well as custom, and 3rd party RPM repositories, create patch group, submit emergency or scheduled patch jobs, submit rollback and/or uninstall patch jobs, create and manage configuration files. 
 
Since November 2013 Oracle offers Spacewalk 2.0 support for Oracle Linux Basic, Premier and Systems support subscriptions.
