Melbourne-based Araza Joins Unisys Security Global Channel Partner Program to Embed Security as a Fundamental Part of Transformation

​Unisys partner program supports Araza Women in Cyber (AWinC) initiative

SYDNEY, Australia, 5 August 2020 Unisys Corporation today announced that Melbourne-based technology consultancy, Araza, has joined the Unisys Security Global Channel Partner Program to offer the Unisys Stealth® suite of security solutions in Australia.

"As highlighted by Prime Minister Morrison and the Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC), Australian organisations are facing sustained cyber attacks1. Security must be embedded in every business and government agency's business strategy to not only prevent breaches, but also minimise their impact if and when they happen. Joining the Unisys partner program and accessing the Stealth™ portfolio is a key step for Araza to expand our security capabilities by incorporating a Zero Trust approach to security as part of our clients' technology transformations. Stealth can isolate threats quickly and build resilience into their environment enabling businesses to move from crisis to confidence," said Victoria Kluth, CEO Araza.

Doug Richards, General Manager Araza said: "When it comes to securing our critical digital capabilities, we cannot carry on the way we used to.  We need to change the game completely." 

Araza will use the Unisys partnership to help fulfil the Araza Women in Cyber (AWinC) program that was established in 2019 to bring 100 women into information security roles. Seventy-five percent of the Araza consultants to date that have achieved Stealth certification are female since joining the partner program in April 2020.

Stealth provides organisations "Always On" security by establishing a software-defined perimeter that enables a Zero Trust environment. Stealth reduces attack surfaces by discovering and understanding network assets and their communication flows, then creating dynamic, identity-driven microsegments called Communities of Interest, separating trusted systems, users and data from the untrusted. Encryption between endpoints cloaks assets from unauthorised users, while Dynamic Isolation™ capabilities quickly isolate devices or users at the first sign of compromise.

Stealth was recently recertified by the U.S. National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP), recognised by governments in 31 countries worldwide including Australia and New Zealand, to protect critical data in national security systems.

Araza is a technology consulting company that specialises in cloud and digital transformation systems integration. This wide range of service offerings includes collaboration, cloud, mobility and software with an emphasis on security in industries that include telecommunications, banking and finance, government and manufacturing sectors.

Rick Mayhew, Vice President & General Manager of Unisys Asia Pacific said:  "As a consultancy-led business, Araza is in the perfect position to advise clients how to prevent and minimise the impact of cyber threats as part of their technology transformation. Adding Unisys Stealth to their portfolio, Araza will be able to help their customers better protect their data and assets. In addition, both companies share a vision to grow technical senior career pathways for women in the technology industry."
