Red Hat announced several enhancements to Red Hat Insights, its predictive analytics offering, including integrations for ServiceNow and Slack, as well as expanded monitoring capabilities to identify known threats in Red Hat OpenShift and Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

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.

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.

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.

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 Red Hat subscriptions.
