Red Hat release a new version of its Satellite systems management solution, adding security capabilities, enhanced discovery and container management capabilities across physical, virtual and cloud environments.
Red Hat Satellite 6.1 brings users significant upgrades in three key areas:
- Container management
- Container Management
The core capabilities of Satellite 6.1 provide Docker with more control around versioning, authentication and integration with existing platforms. A scalable on-premise registry based with Role-Based Access Controls, auditing and a robust API are now available for developers seeking to manage systems in a container-based environment.
Satellite 6.1 brings upgrades to errata management, allowing users to address security, bugfix and enhancement errata. Improved reporting now enables organizations to more quickly identify and respond to hosts affected by a security vulnerability, minimizing downtime and sensitive data exposure in vulnerability scenarios such as those presented by Shellshock, Heartbleed and GHOST. Additionally, OpenSCAP, a standardized approach to maintaining enterprise system security, is now available in tech preview. OpenSCAP automatically verifies the presence of patches, checks system security configuration settings and examines systems for signs of compromise in daily/weekly/monthly cadences that can be customized by end users to best fit their own internal security protocols.
