I suggest very carefully selecting particular packages (and groups 
thereof) from whatever repos (or from individual experienced users' 
efforts), testing them thoroughly on test systems (usually a set of VMs) 
and/or building your own packages based on selected/modified SRPMs 
(according to your own requirements), then defining your own enterprise 
repo(s) for internal use.

Why not use other distro(s) with more recent packages? Because I have 
tried them and I only find RHEL / CentOS a truly Enterprise System. At 
least it suits me. :-)

There is no such thing as a 100% reliable system if you don't do things 
right. You can easily screw (in terms of security and reliability) your 
Vanilla RHEL/CentOS with one wrong setting, even using your safe repos.
