New initiative aimed at broadening market for Unisys Stealth Solution Suite to help organizations deal with growing cybersecurity threats
BLUE BELL, Pa., May 7, 2012– Unisys (NYSE: UIS) today announced that it is offering the Unisys Stealth Solution Suite of cybersecurity software through a new channel program.
The Unisys Stealth Solution Suite helps organizations address a growing number of cybersecurity attacks and hacker incidents. These solutions use patented and patent pending security techniques designed to cloak data communication end points, such as end user devices, data center servers and applications, to become invisible on the network and therefore removed as targets for hackers.
Under the new channel initiative, resellers will be able to market the Unisys Stealth security innovations to industry segments targeted for cyber attacks, such as financial services, healthcare, legal and Federal, state and local government.
To lead the new channel initiative, Unisys has hired industry veteran Tom Zorn as vice president, software channels. Zorn has more than 25 years of experience in bringing new and established multi-product services and solutions to market through channels. He co-founded Alternative Technology, a distributor of leading-edge security, networking and virtualization solutions through the channel. Following the acquisition of Alternative Technology by Arrow Electronics, Zorn served as executive vice president of global vendor strategies for Arrow’s enterprise computing channel organization.
In addition, John Stubbs has joined Zorn’s team as director of Unisys software channels. Stubbs had previously served as vice president of business development strategies at Arrow Electronics, where he directed public sector and security initiatives for the company’s enterprise computing channel organization. Prior to this role, Stubbs had been vice president of business development strategies for Alternative Technology.
“We see strong value in our Stealth Solution offerings as a disruptive cybersecurity technology to help organizations deal with the growing threat of hackers and cyber attacks,” said Zorn. “We want to widen the market for this groundbreaking technology by working more closely with selected channel partners to bring the benefits of the Unisys Stealth Solution Suite to a broader base of customers.”
The Unisys Stealth Solution Suite is compatible with traditional network security infrastructures and can be used to improve secure access to existing applications and information without the need to make changes to firewalls and network devices or disrupt business operations.
The Unisys Stealth technology is currently in use by both government and commercial organizations to protect sensitive data. Last year, Unisys Stealth achieved the National Security Agency’s EAL-4+ certification for protection of data moving across public and private networks.
Unisys will be showcasing the Stealth Solution Suite, as well as its Secure Private Cloud solution, at the Interop 2012 Expo in Las Vegas during May 8-10 at booth #1009. For more information about Unisys Stealth Solution Suite or the channel program, visit www.unisys.com/stealth.
The Unisys Stealth Solution Suite provides AES-256 encryption. The product’s cryptographic engine is FIPS 140-2 certified through the use of SecureParser® technology, created by Security First Corp, which cryptographically splits data (encrypts and “bit-splits” data, adds authentication and fault tolerant information) into multiple packets as it moves through the network and to storage devices, and then authenticates and reassembles the information packets for delivery exclusively to authorized users.
