Overcome the hurdles to digital transformation with a simple, agentless approach to automation that is being used throughout the federal government to rapidly and securely deliver value in enterprise IT environments.
IT in the federal government is complex. Siloed approaches to development and infrastructure operations, characterized by contractors and in-house IT, can make effective digital transformation difficult. However, your customers demand more services, delivered faster and more efficiently than ever. DevOps has the potential to change the status quo, but getting there is a tall order for many agencies. Steep learning curves and requirements such as STIG make transformation difficult. The answer? Automation.
Ansible’s powerful and secure IT automation engine drives complexity out of your environment, accelerates your DevOps journey, and ensures that all teams are on the same page.
Security is hard. Why not automate it? IT automation with Ansible ensures your systems are properly configured each time, wherever they’re deployed, simply and quickly.
This starts with defining what it means for your system to be secured. Ansible roles apply the DISA STIG standard for secure systems, defining common baselines for secure machine profiles. Then monitor those systems for compliance and deviations from security standards – and automatically remediate where necessary.
Finally, Ansible’s powerful role-based access control (RBAC) engine lets you safely delegate access to playbooks, roles and inventories. Ansible also keeps a record of every action a user takes in the system ensuring a complete, and greatly simplified, audit trail.
Together Ansible and Red Hat are have long been trusted to help federal users drive down the cost and complexity of deploying and managing federal IT systems and apps – whatever the environment.
