Expanded Visibility Across Hybrid Cloud with New Red Hat Insights Capabilities

Red Hat - 3 booth

Open source solution provider Red Hat has announced significant improvements to Red Hat Insights, its predictive analytics product. Along with increased monitoring tools to spot known vulnerabilities in Red Hat OpenShift and Red Hat Enterprise Linux, this now offers connections for ServiceNow and Slack.

According to an IDC study, the top three features wanted in DevSecOps solutions were ease of deployment (33.5%), speed (31.9%), and vulnerability prioritization (30.4%). Together, the data would imply that DevSecOps vendors must provide solutions that seamlessly integrate into the developer workflow, deliver precise and usable results, and explain to CSOs and upper management how the solution lowers overall risk for the company and fits into their all-encompassing security strategy.

Red Hat’s clients may utilize the tools they are currently accustomed to while more simply integrating analytics into their current operations thanks to the “simplicity” of incorporating Insights’ insights straight into ticketing and workflow systems. In addition, users may lower risks in their hybrid cloud operating environments for a more secure IT framework thanks to improved threat awareness in pillar technologies like Red Hat OpenShift and Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Splunk, ServiceNow, Slack

Notifications from various, fragmented technologies may be distracting and challenging to manage as enterprises extend their cloud-native operations and roll out new platforms, which can result in alert fatigue and unattended key concerns.

Teams can manage comprehensively with Red Hat Insights’ unified visibility across platforms and services. The acquisition of a tested solution would be made simpler by bringing Red Hat Insights straight to service providers like Splunk this summer, ServiceNow, and Slack, while seamless access to outcomes is provided by embedding Red Hat Insights into the services that clients currently use. By more rapidly getting these signals in front of decision makers and promoting remediations before there is downtime, a cluster failure, or a botched upgrade, bespoke integrations assist businesses in proactively remediating a number of possible software security and configuration concerns.

By extending its Insights offering 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.

Red Hat OpenShift, Malware Detection

“When it comes to managing wide-ranging hybrid cloud environments, flexibility, speed and visibility are keys to success,” said Brent Midwood, Director Global Product Management at Red Hat.

Red Hat is improving capabilities to manage and track vulnerabilities in Red Hat OpenShift in addition to simplifying administration across service providers. A list of OpenShift clusters affected by unresolved Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVEs) is provided by Insights’ vulnerability capabilities for Red Hat OpenShift, allowing for the triage and prioritizing of serious concerns. In addition to enhancing Red Hat’s current hybrid cloud security portfolio, the service keeps systems operational and enables OpenShift users to make the most of their Red Hat subscription.

The IBM X-Force Threat Intelligence team and over 175 signatures of known Linux malware were used to create the Insights malware detection service, which checks Red Hat Enterprise Linux servers for the presence of malware. Users may examine results for both individual system scans and aggregated findings for all of their Red Hat Enterprise Linux systems, as well as access the list of signatures scanned against their Red Hat Enterprise Linux systems with analysis reports. By include malware detection, a multi-layered security approach may increase infrastructure protection and reduce possible threats.

“When it comes to managing wide-ranging hybrid cloud environments, flexibility, speed and visibility are keys to success,” said Brent Midwood, Director Global Product Management at Red Hat. “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.”


The Slack integration is available in Red Hat Insights, while the ServiceNow integration is available in the ServiceNow Store. Red Hat subscriptions would cover both Red Hat Enterprise Linux malware and Red Hat OpenShift vulnerability capabilities.
