Unisys Launches Micro-Segmentation Solution for AWS

Unisys Stealth Delivers Micro-segmentation for Amazon Web Services Cloud Deployments

Unisys Corporation said on Tuesday that it has made its Unisys Stealth micro-segmentation security solution available for Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud customers.

Available immediately, the offering enables customers to micro-segment their cloud deployments from other users while keeping control of their own encryption keys.

Additionally, users can unify their internal security protections with those on the cloud, enforce virtual machine-to-machine encryption in the cloud, and reduce attack surfaces, Unisys said.  

Customers can also manage access via existing identity systems including Active Directory or LDAP; and add integrated supply chain partners to micro-segments without giving them broad access – at the packet level without any new hardware, firewall rules, or application changes.  

The Unisys Stealth software uses identity-based micro-segmentation techniques and encryption to protect data and applications on the AWS Cloud, and hides data and applications from hackers and unauthorized users by encrypting traffic between Stealth-protected endpoints. 

“With Stealth on AWS, organizations can easily integrate additional protection, comply with regulations, and micro-segment off their virtual machines from neighbors when working on the cloud,” the company said.  

“Unisys Stealth on AWS provides extra layers of security for enterprises moving their workloads to the AWS Cloud,” said Stephen Schmidt, chief information security officer, Amazon Web Services, Inc. “We are pleased this solution is now available on the AWS Marketplace, offering our customers immediate access to the security protection capabilities of Stealth.”    

“Enterprises can now use Stealth as their single platform for securing both their data center and their cloud environments, substantially reducing the complexity and cost of multiple platforms,” said Tom Patterson, vice president and general manager for global security solutions, Unisys. “This comprehensive level of protection removes roadblocks for many organizations looking to leverage the cloud, and will unlock huge cost savings and business agility needed in today’s competitive environment.”  

Unisys Stealth is available directly from the AWS Marketplace.
