Raytheon, Red Hat Collaborating on DevSecOps Software Development Solution; John DeSimone, Paul Smith Quoted

Raytheon announced on Tuesday that the company is collaborating with Red Hat to develop a new, security-focused software development solution, known as DevSecOps, for enterprise environments.

Raytheon’s integrated suite of DevOps software development tools will be combined with Red Hat OpenShift for enhanced protection of the software application development process. 

"The need for rapid delivery of secure capability is paramount to our national security,” John DeSimone, vice president of Cybersecurity and Special Missions at Raytheon Intelligence, Information and Services. “We worked with Red Hat to develop an innovative new offering that combines our efficient approach to DevSecOps with a focus on security, enhanced by Red Hat's container platform."

The Raytheon DevSecOps solution offers security automation and the option of integrating solutions and customizing resources based on mission requirements, contributing to reduction in cost and timeline.

Red Hat OpenShift is a security-focused enterprise container platform with full-stack automated operations to manage hybrid cloud and multicloud deployments. Red Hat OpenShift is built on the backbone of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, the first operating system to achieve Common Criteria certification with Linux Container Framework Support.

"Our work with Raytheon further exemplifies Red Hat's collaborative approach to accelerating innovation and delivery of mission with our system integrator partners," said Paul Smith, senior vice president and general manager of Red Hat's public sector and 2019 Wash100 Award winner. "Red Hat OpenShift's enhanced security capabilities can enable Raytheon to deliver a faster, more efficient DevSecOps approach with security at its core."
