PayPros Selects Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 to Create PayPros Innovo Next-Generation Payment System

Security, customer satisfaction and cost-effectiveness all factors in the move from Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5

RALEIGH, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Red Hat, Inc. (NYS: RHT) , the world's leading provider of open source solutions, today announced that PayPros, a leader in integrated payment processing, has migrated to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 to create their next generation payments service platform, PayPros Innovo. Previously running Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, the move allows PayPros to continue to enjoy a secure payment processing system and reduced total cost of ownership, while being able to take advantage of enhancements included in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 provides PayPros with a secure, cost-effective and stable platform that meets the company's unique business needs in an efficient, scalable package. More than 55,000 depend on PayPros to deliver customized, flawless integration of payment processing, which requires a high level of security and availability. As such, PayPros is relying on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6's certified and deeply integrated security features, allowing PayPros to maintain the security of their processes. Additionally, PayPros chose to base their payment engine platform, Innovo, on Red Hat Enterprise Linux because of the low total cost of ownership and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6's reputation for stability and reliability - key requirements for a business based around an "always-on" system.

"Given our positive history with Red Hat, and the many features of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, we feel confident we've migrated to that ideal operating system for our needs," said Joe Monteil, chief information officer, PayPros. "Our solution is sold to businesses through relationships with software developers. Our payment service platform is vital to supporting and growing these relationships. The security, performance and throughput we get from Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 results in a shared experience all the way down our value chain."

PayPros is an independent enterprise focused on integrated payment processing. Businesses depend on PayPros to take ownership of payments - from initial integration to post-deployment support - ensuring the customized, flawless integration of payment processing into their software applications. PayPros' system processes millions of transactions annually.
