RALEIGH, N.C. -- January 22, 2013

Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: 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.
