BLUE BELL, Pa., March 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Unisys Corporation (NYSE: UIS) today announced that Capgemini UK plc has joined the Unisys channel program as a value-added reseller (VARs) of Unisys Stealth cybersecurity software in the United Kingdom. Capgemini UK plc is part of the Capgemini Group, one of the world's foremost providers of consulting, technology and outsourcing services.
Capgemini UK plc has been designated a Unisys Foundation Channel Partner, the highest level of partnership in the Unisys channel program. Capgemini joins about 60 VARs in the Unisys channel program and is the first global systems integrator in the Unisys channel network.
Capgemini plans to combine Stealth with its global capabilities and expertise in cybersecurity to provide UK organizations with premium, cost-effective protection for information assets and intellectual property.
Unisys Stealth uses advanced data cloaking and encryption techniques to help organizations mitigate cybersecurity attacks and hacker incidents by rendering devices, data, and end users virtually invisible on the network. The solution creates secure user communities, or Communities of Interest (COIs), within an enterprise and is designed to allow only authorized users to access information residing within those COIs. Users outside those COIs cannot access the information, or even know that the information exists.
"It's clear from almost daily reports of cyber-attacks and data breaches that traditional approaches to data protection are not working," said Tom Zorn, vice president of Unisys Software Channels. "Unisys Stealth takes a revolutionary approach to securing an organization's most critical information assets. We look forward to working with Capgemini to help organizations benefit from the power of Unisys Stealth to protect against increasingly sophisticated cyber-attacks."
Said Mike Turner, vice president and UK chief security officer of Capgemini UK plc: "Together with Unisys, we are pleased to combine Stealth's innovative technology with our business and technology services, to help customers better manage their business risk and protect their organizations from a growing a number of targeted attacks, whether that be for enterprise, network, cloud or mobile operations."
