A leading-edge software security innovation -id-1058

Communications enterprises lead the way

Operators in the telecommunications sector have been the tip of the innovation spear for the past two decades. From increasing the speed of data transfer to smartphones to supporting mobile payments, no one in telecommunications has driven change and innovation more than operators. In response, businesses have remade themselves, and entire industries have been transformed.

But with the new playing fields, come new demands. To continue to answer their call to leadership, communications enterprises seek technology and strategy direction that supports intelligent innovation.

And the pace of change is dizzying. Technology is more convergent and disruptive. The world is now digital. Security is paramount. On top of this, the business of communications has changed. Voice revenues continue their free fall. Consumers are showing less and less loyalty. Competitors are delivering over-the-top (OTT) content, picking off the most lucrative revenue. Communications enterprises are forced to aggressively manage the costs of their massive network investments while at the same time pursue new business models, services, and revenues.

Challenges and opportunities abound

Operational agility: Whether you are an industry veteran burdened with legacy network infrastructure, or have rolled-out 4G capabilities, the challenge is the same—how to remain responsive to the market and support the most flexible and attractive services and bundled offerings. Leaders today must support an operating model that allows for flexible, reliable, scalable, and secure transport of these rich communications services.

Customer experience management (CEM): Customers today are not loyal, particularly to their network providers. To fight this battle, communications enterprises need to provide a platform that allows for better relationships with customers, both enterprise and consumer. As providers prepare their networks to support a digital world, they are also called to develop innovative CEM strategies that span channels and serve up the most appealing mix of services and content. If both the customer and the content are now the king, network providers must battle to reclaim the crown.

Unisys leads the way

Unisys helps communications enterprises provide new, innovative data, and voice services based on the latest technology standards. Our work with leading companies has helped them become faster, more nimble, and better able to place themselves at the center of providing real value-added services to consumers and clients. As network providers evolve to IP Multimedia Services (IMS) and software defined networks, Unisys helps them provide the value over that network, drive revenue, and create competitive differentiation. -id-1058

Stealth for Network Security

Unisys StealthTM secures data-in-motion and controls the information sharing within or across networks by employing an innovative data cloaking technique – all while vastly simplifying the infrastructure. Stealth assures security by transforming information using FIPS140-2 certified AES-256 encryption integrated with a new cryptographic data-dispersal algorithm that spreads data across the fabric of the network.

Stealth for Network Security has been through the National Security Agency's Common Criteria process and received EAL-4+ certification as a multi-domain network software solution for protection of data-in-motion across any network - private or public - qualifying Stealth to protect up to secret defense-level or sensitive industry information to support your mission critical requirements.

Here’s what Stealth for Network Security can do:

  • Render communication endpoints undetectable and secure across any private or public network 
  • Secure virtualization of communities of interest (COI) based on security privileges allowing multiple COIs to coexist on a single physical infrastructure
  • Deliver superior cyber defense resulting from Stealth’s ability to cloak networks from outsiders 
  • Reduce infrastructure and cost by reducing the need for multiple, separate physical networks for each COI 
  • Work with the existing security, identity management and IT infrastructure without a costly redesign

Stealth for Data Center Segmentation

Enterprise data centers have evolved over the last decade following innovations in server virtualization and consumerization of IT. Today's security reality presents a critical need to restrict access to certain assets, specifically the servers executing strategic applications and housing the most sensitive data.

The traditional tiered network architecture accomplishes critical server and database security by physical network separation from other data center assets. Flat networks are more flexible and easier to administer, but any system on the network can access any other system.

Unisys StealthTM provides a superior solution to either configuration. Separation of critical servers and databases is achieved by using software to virtualize the network and create secure groups we call Communities of Interest (COI). Far less network equipment is required and on already flat networks, Stealth compartmentalizes the servers with COI; systems in different COI cannot communicate with each other. The result is cost efficiencies with much greater protection.

Regional Isolation

Companies looking to multiple geographies for new business opportunities are exposed to new security challenges. Confidentiality requirements may necessitate that systems at geographically dispersed centers be kept separate from the corporate data center. However, some regional access to the enterprise data center is required.

Unisys StealthTM is designed to provide a solution to the regional challenge. Using Communities of Interest, Unisys Stealth helps secure sensitive data, servers and applications within a regional data center as well as corporate assets in the enterprise data center to:

  • Isolate regional assets from local threats
  • Segregate regional assets from each other
  • Allow selective and secure regional access to the enterprise network

Using Unisys Stealth to connect the regional data center back to the corporate data center provides access to corporate servers, data, and applications to only those with explicit permission.

Secure Remote Access

Unisys StealthTM for Secure Remote Access provides teleworkers, clients, and other trusted parties outside the enterprise with access to sensitive data in the data center. Individuals can be authorized into secure Communities of Interest (COI) which provides limited, granular access to information they need. In addition to establishing virtual COI, Unisys Stealth makes communication endpoints – servers, laptops, and other devices – dark on the network, making them virtually invisible to anyone not authorized into the COI.

  • Need-to-know access to enterprise data from outside the enterprise
  • Flexibility to securely connect from practically anywhere, anytime
  • Ease of use and enhanced user experience

Secure Virtual Terminal

Unisys Stealth for Secure Virtual Terminal (SVT) delivers the Unisys Stealth for Network Security on a secure USB-based device. SSVT is designed to protect high value transactions, transmit sensitive data, facilitate emergency preparedness, and is ideal for travelling, home-based, or guest users. It can be booted from virtually any PC or laptop and preconfigured to establish a virtual secure Stealth tunnel through any network - private or public - to another predetermined Stealth endpoint such as a URL, web portal, Stealth gateway, etc. Our solution guarantees a clean boot from the USB device that mitigates any malware that may have infected the PC itself.

  • SSVT has all of the attributes of Stealth for Network Security
  • Flexibility to securely connect from anywhere, anytime
  • Ease of use and enhanced user experience 
  • Small and portable
