Unisys announces integration of Unisys Stealth Security
Unisys Corporation (NYSE: UIS) today announced at Dell Technologies World 2019 that its award-winning Unisys Stealth® security software suite has been integrated with Dell EMC Cyber Recovery software to provide enhanced protection to clients’ cyber recovery operations. The integrated solution will be available beginning in June 2019.
Stealth™, which includes Dynamic Isolation™ capabilities to quickly isolate devices or users at the first sign of compromise, reduces attack surfaces in these environments by creating dynamic, identity-driven microsegments called communities of interest (COIs). By establishing secure COIs, Stealth separates trusted systems, users and data from the untrusted. It further reduces attack surfaces by encrypting all communication between Stealth-protected assets and cloaking the assets from unauthorised users.
With today’s announcement, the capabilities provided by Stealth will increase security for users of Dell EMC Cyber Recovery, a solution that manages and automates isolation and recovery of business-critical backup data so that organisations can resume business operations quickly following ransomware or destructive cyberattacks.
Stealth will apply cryptographic network isolation to help secure all traffic into, out of and within the Dell EMC Cyber Recovery Vault, in which assets are hidden from the attack surface. Stealth also provides a “virtual clean room” so that recovery operations can begin even before a cyber attack has been neutralised or eliminated from an enterprise network.
“The combination of Dell EMC Cyber Recovery and Unisys Stealth provides greater assurance for organisations looking for extra protection against hackers and malicious insiders who deliberately target data protection and backup infrastructure,” said Jay Snyder, senior vice president, Global Alliances, Dell EMC. “We look forward to working with Unisys to provide our clients with the best possible defenses against attacks on critical backup data.”
The integration of Stealth with Dell EMC Cyber Recovery software closely follows the announcement of the release of Stealth 4.0, the latest version of Stealth software that addresses threats associated with the ever-evolving digital landscape in which adoption of cloud, mobile and the Internet of Things continues to rise. Stealth 4.0 gives clients the ability to take immediate action to respond to security incidents, stopping attacks in progress.
“Many organisations may not realise that their backup capabilities are not designed to withstand and recover from cyber attacks, and these vulnerabilities can have highly damaging and costly results,” said Eric Hutto, senior vice president and president, Enterprise Solutions, Unisys. “With Stealth and Dell EMC Cyber Recovery, organisations can be confident in their ability to restore business operations after a cyber attack. And by deploying Stealth Dynamic Isolation, organisations can greatly reduce the probability and scope of such attacks in the first place.”
