Unisys announced today its latest series of security-related milestones, including a major win in border protection and the launches of leading-edge technologies to help enterprises protect their data and operations from the growing specter of cybercrime.
Made in conjunction with National Cyber Security Awareness Month in the U.S. as well as security-related events the company is sponsoring this week, today’s announcements include:
· A contract from U.S. Customs and Border Protection, part of the Department of Homeland Security, to modernize the agency’s technology for identifying people and vehicles entering and exiting the U.S. The Integrated Traveler Initiatives contract was awarded as a task order under the Department of Homeland Security’s EAGLE II contract.
· The launch of Unisys Digital Investigator, a crime investigation system enabling law enforcement agencies to share critical crime investigation information across applications and agency boundaries. Unisys will demo Digital Investigator, part of the company’s “Safe Cities” initiative for increasing law enforcement agencies’ access to real-time data that can help prevent and combat crime, this week at the annual International Association of Chiefs of Police conference in San Diego.
· The launch of a new Appointment Manager solution for financial services institutions, to be integrated with Unisys Stealth micro-segmentation security software and available via the Microsoft Azure public cloud platform, to manage all aspects of a customer’s appointment from initial contact to automated reminders and through to completion of the appointment.
· The results of a recent ethical hacking event sponsored by the University of Hawaii, at which roughly 100 contestants – including skilled professionals from the FBI and the Army National Guard, with advisors from the NSA acting as “coaches” – failed to access a computerized document protected by Stealth or even detect its presence on the network.
“These milestones serve to highlight Unisys’ unmatched focus on securing the data and operations of organizations across industries ranging from financial services and travel and transportation to government and life sciences,” said Inder M. Singh, chief strategy and marketing officer for Unisys. “These announcements are particularly significant in light of this week’s theme as part of National Cyber Security Awareness Month in the U.S.: ‘Recognizing and Combating Cybercrime.’ The high-value software, services and solutions Unisys brings to its global markets today offer much-needed ammunition in this fight.”
