Unisys CEO Peter Altabef On Security, Cloud, IoT

Joseph F. Kovar

Software is a big part of Unisys' business. What is your approach to that market? 

[We use] software as a driver into our solutions. I'll give you an example. [Unisys] Stealth is part of our security suite of solutions. Stealth has a biometric identity component. It has a microsegmentation component. And we will sell Stealth as a license if somebody just wants to put it into their environment as Stealth, as a lot of companies do. But we will also include Stealth in a larger set of offerings. To give you an example, we signed a contract with the Transportation Safety Administration, or TSA, last year. And that involved strengthening the security and maintenance of their servers and laptops and hardware, really all around the world. It was a large contract. It was over $100 million. But Stealth was a very important piece of it because we were able to use that Stealth software to really lock down the network that these computers use. …

I usually say that we are a software-driven services company.
