Red Hat | December 20, 2022
Red Hat, Inc., the world's leading provider of open source solutions, today announced several enhancements to Red Hat Insights, its predictive analytics offering. This includes integrations for ServiceNow and Slack, as well as expanded monitoring capabilities to identify known threats in Red Hat OpenShift and Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
According to an IDC survey, “ease of deployment (33.5%), speed (31.9%), and vulnerability prioritization (30.4%) were the top three capabilities sought in DevSecOps tools. Taken together, this data suggests DevSecOps vendors must offer solutions that are a seamless part of the developer workflow and provide accurate and actionable results, while also communicating to CSO’s and upper management how the solution reduces the overall risk for the organization and fits as part of their comprehensive security strategy.”1
With the convenience of bringing Insights’ analytics directly into ticketing and workflow systems, customers can use the tools they are already familiar with while more easily adopting analytics into their existing operations. In addition, enhanced threat visibility in foundational technologies such as Red Hat OpenShift and Red Hat Enterprise Linux enables customers to reduce risks in their hybrid cloud operating environments for a more secure IT framework.
Access valuable knowledge about your applications, in your applications
As organizations expand cloud-native operations and introduce new platforms, notifications from varying, fragmented tools can be distracting and difficult to oversee, which can lead to alert fatigue and unaddressed critical issues.
Insights provides unified visibility across platforms and services, enabling teams to manage holistically. Bringing Insights directly to service providers like Splunk this summer and now ServiceNow and Slack simplifies the procurement of a validated solution, while integrating Insights into the services that customers already use provides seamless access to results. Bespoke integrations help organizations proactively remediate a variety of potential software security and configuration issues by more quickly putting these alerts in front of decision makers, encouraging remediations before there’s downtime, a cluster failure or a failed upgrade. By extending Insights to service providers, Red Hat aims to reduce friction across IT and business organizations responsible for supporting the systems needed to run the business today while also building the services and applications to fuel growth tomorrow.
Better protect OpenShift clusters by identifying known threats
In addition to streamlining management across service providers, Red Hat is also enhancing capabilities to better manage and track vulnerabilities in Red Hat OpenShift. Insights’ vulnerability capabilities for Red Hat OpenShift provides a list of OpenShift clusters that are affected by unaddressed Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVEs), enabling triaging and prioritization of critical issues. The service helps keep systems up-and-running, complementing Red Hat’s existing hybrid cloud security portfolio while helping OpenShift users get the most out of their Red Hat subscription.
Reduce malware risk in your IT infrastructure
For most comprehensive security programs, threat hunting and malware detection are problems that Red Hat Enterprise Linux administrators face every day.
Red Hat is providing more visibility into potentially active malware running on systems. The Insights malware detection service monitors and assesses Red Hat Enterprise Linux systems for the presence of malware, utilizing over 175 signatures of known Linux malware provided in collaboration with the IBM X-Force Threat Intelligence team. Users can access the list of signatures scanned against their Red Hat Enterprise Linux systems with analysis reports, and view results for individual system scans and aggregated results for all of their Red Hat Enterprise Linux systems. The addition of malware detection enables a multi-layered security approach to further drive infrastructure security and limit potential threats in their operating system.
The ServiceNow integration is available in the ServiceNow Store; the Slack integration is available within Red Hat Insights. The vulnerability capabilities for Red Hat OpenShift and malware for Red Hat Enterprise Linux are both included in your Red Hat subscriptions.

“When it comes to managing wide-ranging hybrid cloud environments, flexibility, speed and visibility are keys to success. Customers leveraging a more integrated experience to access Red Hat Insights in existing IT processes, from deployment to use in day-2 operations, enables them to reduce process complexity and take faster action. Whether it’s greater visibility for alerts in third party applications or greater visibility into known threats for IT infrastructure, integrating Red Hat Insights with existing tools enables awareness and the confidence necessary to effectively mitigate security and operational risks, wherever your organization is running across the open hybrid cloud.”
Redis | November 23, 2022
Redis, the real-time data platform, announced today a multi-year strategic collaboration agreement (SCA) with Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS). Building on the companies’ existing work together, this agreement will make it easier and faster for customers to adopt Redis Enterprise Cloud’s real-time data processing capabilities with the global reach of AWS services.
This SCA is designed to deliver new product support, industry-specific solutions, and go-to-market strategies beginning with customers migrating on-premises open source or relational databases to the cloud. Additionally, Redis’ Enterprise Cloud solution that runs on AWS services will make it easier for customers to modernize or build entirely new, intelligent applications. Ultimately this focus will empower customers––ranging from the financial services, gaming, retail, and healthcare/life sciences industries to create highly available geo-distributed applications that require sub-millisecond performance; for example indexing and complex queries of frequently read data.
“Today’s businesses must be able to leverage data as it’s created. Redis Enterprise Cloud on AWS allows developers to deploy and run modern applications with real-time, right now performance from anywhere on the planet,” said Jason Forget, Chief Revenue Officer and President, Redis. “While Redis has been working closely with AWS for years, we view this collaboration as a way to further customers' desire to build and deploy at global scale with the local latency required by modern applications.”
Redis currently uses AWS’s global reach and go-to-market programs to educate and incentivize Redis Enterprise Cloud deployments on AWS. Customers can purchase Redis Enterprise Cloud in AWS Marketplace which offers a simplified and consolidated bill that combines their Redis Enterprise Cloud usage with their AWS consumption.
Redis and AWS: Powering the Global Real-Time Economy
“Our machine learning models deliver multiple recommendations during a single user session. We needed a high-performance database in order to handle these read and write operations that could be integrated with our machine learning platform, Amazon SageMaker. Redis Enterprise Cloud on AWS solves this issue very well for us. I don't think we've ever completed a migration that quickly with such a high volume of data,” said Daniel Galinkin, Head of Machine Learning Engineering at iFood, a Brazilian online food ordering and delivery platform.
“We need to be able to take a large amount of reference data and be able to use it for real-time decision making. Redis Enterprise Cloud on AWS was the ideal solution to meet our technical requirements as we evolve from our own data centers to also leverage AWS infrastructure. We’re able to support multiple data centers and AWS Regions with Active-Active Redis to optimize for the lowest local latency, provide durability, and control rate limiting to deliver the best experience for our customers. We’ve extended Redis Enterprise Cloud on AWS for feature calculations, along with Amazon DynamoDB, to structure, store, and quickly access the data to make calculations for a model,” said Humberto Morales, Chief Architect at Telesign, a digital identity and communications platform-as-a-service.
“AWS and Redis have a history of working together. We look forward to expanding our relationship and continuing to deliver innovative solutions for our customers, With this new strategic collaboration between AWS and Redis, we are focused on helping our customers meet their needs seamlessly, and enabling businesses to utilize their data more effectively.”
