Unisys Recognised by Two Respected Industry Analyst Firms for Leadership in Managed Security Services
Company positioned as a “Leader” in NelsonHall evaluation of managed security services and as a “High Performer” in HfS Research “Trust-as-a-Service” report
London, UK, November 18, 2015 – Unisys Corporation today announced that two respected analyst firms – NelsonHall and HfS Research – have recognised the company as a leading global provider of managed security services.
NelsonHall has positioned Unisys in the “Leaders” quadrant in the 2015 NelsonHall Vendor Evaluation and Assessment Tool (NEAT) report on managed security services – the top category in the evaluation.
In a separate report by HfS Research, Unisys is positioned as a “high performer” in the company’s “Trust-as-a-Service Blueprint Report.” The report evaluates security service providers “with a focus on broad security abilities grounded by managed security services and enhanced by overall security, risk and trust offerings.”
The NelsonHall report cited Unisys’ contract with a global banking group as an example of how the company has helped clients by providing intrusion detection and security information and event management (SIEM) services. The report noted that, “Unisys reduced the number of incidents the client was experiencing by approximately 75 percent, and the labor required to resolve incident alerts by 65 percent.”
“Unisys has demonstrated its investment in managed security and the ability to secure clients’ environments,” said Mike Smart, NelsonHall’s managed security services analyst. “The company has done this by leveraging its security technologies such as the Unisys Noise Cancellation Advanced Analytics Platform (UNCAAPTM) to reduce the number of events that need to be processed in a traditional security environment, and its Unisys StealthTM offerings to provide a new style of security, safeguarding clients’ networks by effectively making the network and assets undetectable.”
The HfS report places Unisys at the forefront of security service providers across two main categories: innovation and execution. The report cited Unisys for its “interesting technologies and an approach that aggressively targets/positions security as a transformational element.” According to HfS, Unisys is providing not only security services, but more importantly, trust.
“Unisys has a solid record of strong performance in the global security market,” said Fred McClimans, executive vice president of strategy and managing director of Digital Trust & Security at HfS Research. “Its alignment with our Digital Trust Framework, coupled with a long-term vision for advancing physical/digital security maturity, positions it well to assist enterprises seeking to stay ahead of emerging cyber threats.”
“Innovation and execution in delivering managed security services are critical measurements of a company’s ability to help enterprises combat today’s escalating and sophisticated cyber threats,” said Tom Patterson, vice president and general manager for global security solutions, Unisys. “These two reports from two highly respected analysts firms testify to Unisys’ strengths in helping our clients protect themselves from sophisticated threats by providing advanced security solutions.”
The Unisys global security offering includes a full suite of efficient managed services, technical and strategic consulting, award-winning Stealth micro-segmentation products and advanced physical security managed by the LEIDATM (Library of eID Artifacts) framework, which creates software building blocks that accelerate the time needed to develop and implement identity and credentialing solutions. Unisys provides advanced security for clients including governments, financial services and commercial companies around the world.
