Unisys Enhances Managed Security Services Offering to Thwart Emerging Cybersecurity Threats

Unisys Corporation has added the Security Event and Log Management solution to its Unisys Managed Security Services (MSS) offering.

This new solution gives clients enhanced capabilities to identify and deflect potential cybersecurity breaches as they emerge from anywhere in the enterprise IT infrastructure, as well as to create and maintain the detailed audit trails of threats and responses increasingly required by regulatory and industry bodies.

"Regulations governing management of information security technology and access logs are evolving as fast as the technology itself," says Sam Gross, vice president, Global IT Outsourcing Solutions, Unisys. "Our clients must find a way to balance protection and regulatory compliance without ratcheting up their operational costs. The Unisys Security Event and Log Management solution enables them to do that by leveraging Unisys expertise in management of cybersecurity technology and global service delivery."

The Security Event and Log Management solution is part of the Unisys MSS suite. It enables service personnel in Unisys Security Operations Centers who monitor and manage security infrastructure for clients to track, record and correlate potential cybersecurity breaches occurring across the entire network, from mobile devices to firewalls and servers.

The Security Event and Log Management solution has a range of "connectors" that enable it to gather information from a variety of devices and monitoring systems, enabling clients to retain and leverage security assets in which they have already made an investment.

Based on the ArcSight Logger and ArcSight Enterprise Security Manager offerings from ArcSight, an HP company, the new Unisys solution provides correlation-engine capabilities and an integrated, "single pane of glass" view. Together, these capabilities enable service personnel to conduct real-time forensic analysis of the incoming cybersecurity-event information.

Unisys security-management personnel have also developed business rules, based on prior events, which enable them to analyze data and look for patterns of activity that could indicate new cybersecurity threats. Unisys plans to update the solution regularly with new rules based on experience gained from additional events. In addition, Unisys has added connectors from the Security Event and Log Management solution to the Unisys ClearPath family of servers. This enhancement not only broadens the perimeter that can be protected through Unisys MSS solutions, but also gives Unisys ClearPath clients new options for advanced cybersecurity management and reporting.
