In the same year, the Ministry of Digital Security acknowledged Digital Enforcement Proceedings, a super-service developed jointly with the Russian Federal Service for Financial Markets as the fastest online service on the Gosusluzhba portal. "RED SOFT specialists developed their first projects for the Russian Federal Service for Financial Markets in 2010.

RED OS ecosystem: a functional solution with a wide range of applications
In 2013, guided by security issues, the government decided to replace foreign software with domestic ones. Having experience in developing an operating system for the Russian Federal Service for Environmental, Technological and Nuclear Supervision and its successful implementation, RED SOFT introduced RED OS to the market.
The RED OS operating system is based on free software (Linux-compatible distribution) and proprietary developments. As of today, RED OS has confirmed compatibility with a wide range of software products - from office applications and browsers to specialized software, rapidly developing the ecosystem and providing the user with an opportunity to make a comfortable transition from foreign to Russian software. It is important to note that RED OS has also confirmed its compatibility with domestic hardware, which allows for the formation of comprehensive technostacks that comply with the import substitution policy.
RED OS is registered in the Uniform Registry of Russian Computer Programs and Databases of the Ministry of Communications of Russia (No. 3751). RED OS has been certified by FSTEC of Russia for the fourth protection class. This means that the solution can be used at critical infrastructure facilities, in state information systems up to the first security class inclusive, and personal data information systems up to the first security level of personal data inclusive.
This new version of the operating system was released in 2021. Among its advantages: the use of the latest stable version of the Linux 5.10 LTS kernel (long-term support) accelerated the interaction of OS and "hardware"; the most complete package databases of drivers GutenPrint, OpenPrint-PPDs, Foomatic were added for full work of scanners and printers; it means that under RED OS 7.3 even old devices will work correctly; availability of own repository located in Russia eliminates even the theoretical threat of shutdown due to sudden restrictions or sanctions; familiar and user-friendly interface; high quality technical support; available on Yandex Cloud Marketplace in the "Virtual machines" section.
"Today, the RED OS is already installed on the automated workstations and servers of various government agencies and state corporations. New specialized software required for the business processes of industry organizations is appearing. Russian hardware is becoming popular. Our operating system timely confirms compatibility with each of them. This is the only way to create an import-independent technology stack and implement it in a short time," commented Rustam Rustamov, Deputy General Director of RED SOFT.
