Identify & Resolve Security Vulnerabilities Faster

June 2021All Tiers

Shorten the lengthy remediation process of investigating, rebuilding, retesting and updating runtime environments. The ActiveState Platform lets you find, fix and automatically rebuild a secure version of your Python, Perl and Tcl environments in minutes, decreasing Mean Time To Remediation (MTTR) from days to hours.

Python 3.9 Beta

Python 3.9 – Beta

March 2021All Tiers

We’re introducing a whole new way to work with Python from ActiveState. Rather than a monolithic ActivePython distribution, our Python 3.9 release lets you:

  • Manage packages with a single toolchain for both Windows and Linux -- reduce tool maintenance overhead
  • Deploy into a virtual environment by default (simpler than venv) -- run multiple versions of Python without dependency conflicts
  • Automatically build dependencies from source in parallel, including linked C libraries -- faster, more secure Python builds

python3.9 beta

 

Unlike ActivePython, our Python 3.9 provides:

  • A much smaller footprint -- just the language and the packages you need to get started
  • Standard licensing -- all the packages you install have just their original licensing
  • Command line installation -- automated installation with a single line of code
