Implementing security, management & governance

Leaders in government security standards

As government agencies plan their technology investments, they must carefully balance their needs for efficiency and performance with an equally strong need for security. Red Hat is committed to providing stable technologies that can be employed in data-sensitive environments and that are built on a foundation of security that continues throughout all layers of the software stack.

With its Common Criteria certification, Red Hat ® Enterprise Linux ® is the first operating system to create a framework for Linux container technology in the realm of certified computing. Red Hat actively participates in open communities like the SCAP Security Guide and others to foster the innovative solutions required to meet mission success.

Red Hat can help agencies meet security and risk management goals. Whether your organization is bridging private and public cloud, starting the process for FIPS, FISMA, or NIST 800-53 certification, or trying to increase efficiency with automation, Red Hat’s open source solutions can help public sector IT close the innovation gap.
