Unisys Client Flowserve Wins CSO50 Award for Implementation of Unisys Stealth® Micro-Segmentation Software
Leading global flow control company recognized for innovative digital protection of critical infrastructure assets
BLUE BELL, Pa., January 25, 2017 – Unisys Corporation (NYSE: UIS) announced today that its client Flowserve – one of the world's leading providers of fluid motion and control products and services – has won a 2017 CSO50 Award from publisher IDG's CSO for its successful implementation of micro-segmentation security protection using Unisys Stealth® software.
The prestigious CSO50 Awards are presented annually to a select group of organizations that have demonstrated that their security projects/initiatives have created outstanding business value and thought leadership. Flowserve will accept its award at the CSO50 Conference + Awards held on May 1-3, 2017, at the Scottsdale Resort at McCormick Ranch in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Flowserve was recognized for a project the company designed to modernize its security framework for addressing future threats and meeting compliance and regulatory requirements. The project featured a micro-segmentation approach using Unisys Stealth and identity-based encryption to proactively protect data by restricting communication within the company's network to pre-authorized groups of users and devices. Consequently, even if hackers successfully accessed a device within the network, they still would not be able to access or even see other endpoints outside of the micro-segment in which the infiltrated devices resided.
"Flowserve has found a way to improve security while avoiding the deployment and management complexity associated with traditional security approaches," said Tim Hostman, vice president, IT operations & end user services, Flowserve. "The innovation we've utilized is in the use of the Unisys Stealth micro-segmentation software that works across a heterogeneous environment, rather than using traditional physical segmentation which relies on firewalls, VLANs and difficult-to-manage physical infrastructure."
Unisys Stealth software – including applications focused on core, cloud, mobile, identity and analytics – creates segments within an organization where only authorized users can access information, while others cannot even see that those segments exist. The company recently launched Stealth(aware), a new application that enables organizations to easily deploy Unisys Stealth across extended networks with the touch of a button.

"This award is a testament to their forward-thinking leadership and willingness to innovate on new ways to improve digital security."
