Azul is the only provider delivering Java 7 and Java 6 support to SLED institutions.

Only with Azul Platform Core for the Public Sector can Government organizations get timely security updates and ongoing Azul support for Java 6 and Java 7, versions still used extensively in Government, as well as Java 8, 11, 13, and 15.
