  • With JRebel, developers get to see their code changes immediately, fine-tune their code with incremental changes, debug, explore and deploy their code with ease (both locally and remotely), and ultimately spend more time coding instead of waiting for the dreaded application redeploy to finish. Every time a developer tests a code change it takes minutes to build and deploy the application. JRebel keeps the app server running at all times, so testing is instantaneous and interactive.

  • It's time high-level executives and IT compliance officers recognize and acknowledge the danger of malicious insiders, an increased attack surface and the potential for breaches caused by employee error or negligence. See why there is extra emphasis on insider threats.
