Product Leadership, Key Deployment Agreements
Unisys Stealth uses identity-based, micro-segmentation techniques and encryption to create segments within an organization's IT environment where only authorized users can access information, while those without authorization cannot even see that these endpoints exist. If an unauthorized user gets into the organization, Stealth cryptographically contains their access to a single segment of the network, with no access to move laterally to other parts of the organization.
Unisys has announced agreements this year for Stealth to be available for enterprise use on the world's two largest cloud computing platforms as measured by market share – making it the only such solution to be available on both platforms:
- Stealth for Azure – Unisys announced the availability of Unisys Stealth(cloud) for Microsoft Azure to seamlessly deliver award-winning Stealth micro-segmentation security from clients' enterprises to Azure, thus enabling a highly-secure, hybrid cloud environment. See release here.
- Stealth for AWS – Unisys announced it is providing enterprises with the award-winning Unisys Stealth micro-segmentation security solution on the Amazon Web Services Cloud, available for clients to immediately acquire and deploy from the AWS Marketplace. See release here.
