Red Hat announced the availability of secure server bundles, in partnership with Symantec, targeted at helping small and medium-sized businesses secure server hosts. The solutions deliver a certified and tested package that offers customers the choice of Red Hat Enterprise Linux or the Red Hat Application Stack bundled with Symantec Critical System Protection. These solutions enable customers to implement a secure server complete with the reliable Linux and middleware platform from Red Hat for both pre-configured and custom configured behavior-based host protection and against application threats running on the server.
The bundled solutions are designed to lower overall implementation time, avoid costly hardware upgrades and be standards-based. Designed for simple integration with existing infrastructure, each solution is certified for reliability. Customers will be able to deploy a proactive security solution that addresses the security needs of small and medium-sized enterprises by protecting against both traditional threats and zero-day attacks and by providing security administrators with the reporting and auditing capabilities to ensure compliance with internal security policies.
Two Bundled Offerings
Red Hat and Symantec will offer two secure server solutions to customers: Secure Server Host and Secure Server Host for Applications.
The Secure Server Host solution brings together Symantec’s leading proactive, behavior-based host intrusion protection and detection technologies with the leading open source Linux platform for enterprise computing for servers with up to two processor sockets. This solution is designed to ensure host integrity and system compliance, as well as reduce the cost and complexity of data center environments.
The Secure Server Host for Applications solution brings together the same security technologies mentioned above with the Red Hat Application Stack, an open source suite needed by enterprises to run standard web and enterprise applications based on Java, LAMP or Linux. Designed for enterprise computing needs for servers with up to two processor sockets ensuring host integrity and system compliance, the solution also reduces the cost and complexity of data center environments.
