WebSphere Automation


Struggling to keep up with WebSphere security vulnerabilities? Be resilient with new self-securing features in WebSphere Automation!


Automate WebSphere operations - without changing your existing environment - with simple actions to improve operational efficiency and security.

With newly launched WebSphere Automation you can leverage automation to reduce manual toil and remove monotonous tasks of understanding your WebSphere security posture.
Reduce risk and meet compliance
Automatically recognize and recommend relevant CVEs (Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures) for impacted traditional WebSphere and Liberty servers, and connect teams with critical WebSphere security information through a single dashboard.
Operate more efficiently
Streamline the operational experience and enhance your team’s response capabilities with a centrally managed e-mail notification system and a dashboard that consolidates information across environments and deployment types to respond to security vulnerabilities faster.

StudEntX: Your Summer of Learning in 3-2-1 - June 16 at 12:00 ET

"Join us to see the latest capabilities of IBM Mono2Micro, enabling the partitioning of a Java monolithic application into microservices and deployment into the Open Liberty cloud-optimized runtime. We’ll demonstrate its valuable insights into legacy code in our applications that may no longer be in use, opportunities for code reuse, and partitioning in support of specific use cases.  We will explore the new capabilities in the UI, see how generated cross-partition communication enables maximum reuse of existing source code, and demonstrate efficient microservice deployments into Open Liberty."
