DNS - Unisys Launches Security Event and Log Management Solution to Curb Cyber Security Breaches



In an effort to give its enterprise clients enhanced capabilities to identify and deflect potential cybersecurity breaches, Unisys Corporation recently enhanced its Unisys (News - Alert) Managed Security Services (MSS) offering with the addition of Security Event and Log Management solution.

In a press release, this information technology leader claimed that as an integral part of the Unisys MSS suite, the Security Event and Log Management solution packs the best of both worlds---on the one hand it combines Unisys Seices Expertise, and on the other hand, it integrates "Best in Class" Security Products.

Based on the industry-leading ArcSight (News - Alert) Logger and ArcSight Enterprise Security Manager offerings, the new Unisys solution is designed to enable 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. According to its maker, the Security Event and Log Management solution can help clients lower costs by reducing the amount of resources and the number of personnel required for cybersecurity-related tracking and reporting.

“Regulations governing management of information security technology and access logs are evolving as fast as the technology itself. 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,” one of the VPs with Unisys, Sam Gross noted in a statement.

In the press release, Unisys elaborated on the new solution’s functionalities and features.

The company informed that the solution has a wide range of "connectors" or software capabilities that enable it to gather information from a variety of devices and monitoring systems. This, according to its maker, enables clients to retain and leverage security assets in which they have already made an investment.

It also provides powerful 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 plans to update the solution regularly with new rules based on experience gained from additional events.

Few days back, Unisys announced through a statement that NASA has selected the Unisys Corp. (News - Alert) in Reston, Va., to provide simulation and aircraft technical services for the agency's Langley Research Center in Hampton, Va.
