Unisys has announced the availability of Unisys Stealth 5.0, the latest version of the company's security software, to provide protection for data in container and Kubernetes environments, which will improve data center security and secure new workloads, Unisys reported on Monday.
"With Stealth 5.0, we make the use of these technologies seamless from a security standpoint, so clients can realize the agility, availability, manageability and scalability advantages offered by containerized microservices – while minimizing risk," said Sudhir Mehta, global vice president, product management, Unisys.
Unisys’ upgraded Stealth 5.0 will enable organizations to implement the company's technologies in a way that does not compromise their security or increase their attack surface. The software will help enterprises streamline security through implementing one set of security policies that will work across an entire digital infrastructure, including desktops, servers and the cloud.
In addition, Stealth 5.0 will improve the security and reliability of Internet of Things devices and other modern infrastructures such as containers, virtual machines and physical servers to reduce attack surfaces in these environments through developing dynamic, identity-driven microsegments called communities of interest (COIs).
Unisys will incorporate secure COIs to divide trusted systems, users and data from the untrusted. Stealth 5.0 will also reduce attack surfaces by encrypting all communication between Stealth-protected assets and cloaking the assets from unauthorized users.
Stealth 5.0 has incorporated additional capabilities, including enhanced secure virtual gateway (SVG) capabilities, expanded application program interface (API) and automation capabilities and enhanced dynamic isolation, to expedite deployment as well as improve clients’ enterprise diversity and security.
"Our clients are increasingly embracing the use of containers and Kubernetes as a means for more efficient applications development," Mehta added.
