Red Hat Enterprise Linux 9.1 And 8.7 Help Streamline Complex Infrastructure Environments


Red Hat has introduced Red Hat Enterprise Linux 9.1, the latest version of the enterprise Linux platform. Along with the recently announced Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.7, these minor versions add and refine capabilities for a wide range of enterprise IT needs, from helping to streamline complex infrastructure environments to improving the security stance of containerized applications.

Regardless of the environment, IT system security remains a constant concern for nearly every organization. Red Hat Enterprise Linux 9.1 and 8.7 keep these needs front and center with operating system images that are pre-configured to meet organization-specific system security needs. By enabling security compliance profiles in image builder blueprint files, IT teams can specify an OpenSCAP security profile when extending Red Hat Enterprise Linux deployments with image builder to deliver operating system images that meet IT security and compliance requirements from installation.

The latest versions of Red Hat Enterprise Linux extend multi-level security (MLS) support for agencies or other sensitive operations to better document and control classification needs. Administrators can also use new attestation technology to verify that their operating system is booting with validated, unmodified components, helping to better limit potential threat vectors.

Red Hat Insights now includes a malware detection capability to scan Red Hat Enterprise Linux systems for the presence of known vulnerabilities or malicious code. Additionally, Sigstore technology is now incorporated into Red Hat Enterprise Linux’s native container tools as a technical preview. This helps users to sign and verify code signatures using local keys, improving software security stances in hybrid environments.

New Insights capabilities available to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 9.1 and 8.7 users include proactive recommendations for edge computing devices, auto-registration for public cloud instances, enhanced subscription tracking and more.
