Our Story

Our Story

SUSE RGS mission is to deliver the latest in open-source technology to the US Government in a secure, validated way. We are employee-owned and our team consists exclusively of US citizens, with a strong history of delivering solutions in both the public and private sector for organizations adopting cloud computing, containerization, and DevSecOps.

While at Rancher Labs, our founding team was responsible for building Rancher products and implementing them in the commercial markets. As Rancher products grew in popularity, they started Rancher Federal to ensure government clients had access to cleared support for all of these critical open-source projects.

Renamed SUSE RGS in 2021, we have a strategic partnership with SUSE (the new owners of Rancher Labs) to be the exclusive distributor of SUSE and Rancher support services to the US government.

Our team provides cleared support for these products, as well as independent, US-based validation of the open-source code, and validation of external penetration tests conducted by US companies.
