Unisys to deliver enterprise security on the AWS cloud
Posted on 21-Jan-2016 11:16 | Tags Filed under: News



Unisys Corporation will provide enterprises with the Unisys Stealth micro-segmentation security solution on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud, available for customers to immediately acquire and deploy from the AWS Marketplace. 

 

The solution will provide advanced security to AWS customers, while providing Unisys clients with the ease of access and scale of the AWS Cloud. 

 

Unisys optimised its Stealth offering to give AWS customers a fast and convenient way to protect vital information and applications against evolving threats. 

 

AWS provides a highly reliable, scalable, low-cost infrastructure platform used by more than a million active customers across 190 countries around the world. With Stealth on AWS, organisations can easily integrate additional protection, comply with regulations, and micro-segment off their virtual machines from neighbors when working on the cloud. 

 

The solution is another step in Unisys’ reinvention as an IT technology and services leader focused on secure digital transformation. It also illustrates Unisys’ asset-light strategy of working with cloud technology providers, which complements Unisys’ own advanced capabilities in infrastructure and service management, analytics, application services and software, as well as security. 

 

“Security and cloud computing are strategic priorities for businesses today,” said Peter Altabef, Unisys’ president and chief executive officer. “Enterprise-proven security that evolves to meet future threats will provide additional assurance to enterprises and governments that are moving core operations to the cloud.  Integrating Stealth onto the AWS Cloud advances Unisys’ leadership in security, and reflects our commitment to continually deliver innovation that solves real-world business challenges.” 

 

“Security is top of mind for our customers, and at AWS, it’s our number one priority. Unisys Stealth on AWS provides extra layers of security for enterprises moving their workloads to the AWS Cloud,” said Stephen Schmidt, chief information security officer, Amazon Web Services, Inc. “We are pleased this solution is now available on the AWS Marketplace, offering our customers immediate access to the security protection capabilities of Stealth.” 

 

With Stealth on AWS, users can quickly and easily micro-segment their own portions of the cloud from other users while keeping their own encryption keys. They can unify their internal security protections with those on the cloud, enforce virtual machine-to-machine encryption in the cloud, and reduce attack surfaces. 

 

In addition, Stealth on AWS allows organisations to extend entire workloads securely from data centers to the cloud; manage access via existing identity systems including Active Directory or LDAP; and easily add integrated supply chain partners to micro-segments without giving them broad access – all at the packet level without any new hardware, firewall rules, or application changes. 

 

Unisys Stealth software uses identity-based micro-segmentation techniques and encryption to protect data and applications on the AWS Cloud. Stealth protection makes data and applications invisible to hackers and unauthorised users by encrypting traffic between all Stealth-protected endpoints.  

 

Clients can acquire Stealth directly from the AWS Marketplace, where Unisys also offers an AWS Test Drive that allows enterprises to access a private sandbox using Stealth. Using a step-by-step lab manual and video, they can learn more about Stealth and how it works, with no charges incurred as part of the AWS Free Tier. 

 

Alternately, enterprises that want to dynamically extend their on-premise infrastructure to AWS can use Stealth’s “cloudbursting” capability, which automates the shifting of secure workloads directly into AWS. 

 

“Enterprises can now use Stealth as their single platform for securing both their data center and their cloud environments, substantially reducing the complexity and cost of multiple platforms,” said Tom Patterson, vice president and general manager for global security solutions, Unisys. “This comprehensive level of protection removes roadblocks for many organisations looking to leverage the cloud, and will unlock huge cost savings and business agility needed in today’s competitive environment.”
