Your Vigiles Prime 30-day Evaluation: Where Do I Go From Here?


This page will help you select the right version of Vigiles to meet your needs.

Not sure if you have the engineering time to commit to vulnerability management yourself? Managed BSP Maintenance might be for you. Still in development and want to get a more secure product set up from the ground up? Then one of our security services might make sense.

I want to purchase Vigiles. Should I choose Plus or Prime?

The Linux kernel config filtering and links to fixes are the primary decision points for choosing Prime. If you are using the collaboration features or Jira integration for issue creation but don’t need the kernel and U-Boot filtering or easy access to fix information, then Plus works. Given the amount of work that the Linux kernel can generate, most users opt for Prime.

What Does It Cost?

Vigiles subscriptions are annual. Pricing is as follows:


$9,900 / Year*

Key Tier Features

  • CVE triage collaboration
  • Jira integration


$14,900 / Year*

To get Vigiles integrated into your workflow, we’ll also meet with your team to look at your current process and ensure you’ve got the best practices in place with Vigiles.

I Don’t Have Time to Maintain the Security of My Device’s Linux OS/BSP

After seeing the CVE management process, you may realize that maintaining the security of your Linux OS and BSP isn’t something you can fit into your current schedule while also maintaining regular feature updates. Or maybe a new project is going to start using the resources you would have committed to long-term maintenance, and you don’t want to neglect the new vulnerabilities that come up every day.

Maintaining Your Product’s Security Is Complex and Time-consuming

Doing it yourself requires a dedicated team to monitor vulnerabilities, identify if they’re applicable to your product, and analyze the impact of the vulnerabilities. And periodically, it requires a Linux engineer to keep up with kernel vulnerabilities; a Toolchain engineer to keep up the root filesystem, pin the toolchain version to a specific build system and rebuild the SDK for application and regression testing; a BSP engineer to update, integrate and test the patches for the libraries and packages in your configuration; and QA engineers to retest the Linux platform and BSP.

We Take Care Of the BSP, You Focus On The Application

The Timesys BSP Lifecycle Maintenance team has the expertise to maintain the security of your BSP, on your custom hardware. Let us concentrate on the ongoing maintenance while you focus on improving products and building your company’s next great cutting-edge one.

When Timesys takes responsibility for keeping your custom Linux OS/BSP secure, you get maintenance from embedded Linux security experts. We monitor security vulnerability reports with Vigiles, analyze the severity of the vulnerabilities, and integrate required patches and updates. We deliver the updated, tested BSP. You just add application software, test, and deploy updates.

Cut The Engineering Cost In Half

Based on the data from all of our Linux OS/BSP maintenance customers, our BSP Lifecycle Maintenance service cuts the cost of keeping your product updated and secure in half. Simply put, you can offload your BSP Lifecycle Maintenance to Timesys for ½ the cost of junior engineer.
