Use Red Hat Insights to help your team

Help your organization understand and optimize their platforms with Insights.


Developer operations (DevOps) teams are struggling to balance the pace of innovation with managing and optimizing their IT environment.

Red Hat Insights analyzes data across all footprints, highlighting performance patterns and configuration drift that could impact application performance. Insights also prioritizes risks and recommends remediation through playbooks that combine 20+ years of Red Hat engineering knowledge with the unique needs of each DevOps team. Teams benefit from enhanced visibility and application governance, and can now support applications as fast as their businesses require.

Security operations

Security operations (SecOps) must analyze large volumes of events logged by security systems while managing risk across the business as they try to stay ahead of the next vulnerability that hits the news. At the same time, they’re stretched and challenged by the effort of analyzing the large volumes of events logged by security systems.

By partnering with Red Hat—whose mission includes hardening the world’s leading open source solutions—teams can reduce their attack surface even as their IT environment grows.

Red Hat Product Security informs existing users by email of security updates, bug fixes, and enhancements if they register for errata notifications. Red Hat Insights shows you which systems are directly exposed and enables you to triage and prioritize a path to remediation based on the specifics of your organization.

Financial operations

Financial operations (FinOps) teams work to balance service costs with application quality and development agility.

When you connect your systems to Red Hat, and properly annotate your infrastructure in Red Hat Insights, your business, finance, and IT operations teams recover the visibility they once had. Red Hat Insights helps inform future forecasting, avoid negative financial or application performance for the company, and provides a way for your organization to balance between  accelerating growth and controlling IT spend.

Icon-Red_Hat-Media_and_documents-Quotemark_Open-B-Red-RGB We use Red Hat Insights to monitor the systems and it is a godsend. It's like having an extra person on staff. Insights is a constantly updated database of CVEs and configuration best practices. It checks everything in the environment to make sure that it is patched, upto-date, configured properly, and using industry best practices. When you look at the Insights control panel, you know either that everything is good or, if you have an issue, you know exactly where to look and how to fix it. Nine times out of ten, it even gives you an automation script to fix it automatically.
