Unisys CEO Peter Altabef On Security, Cloud, IoT

How about security in Unisys' ClearPath Forward operating system environment? 

[ClearPath Forward], which is all x86 Intel, and which also operates in private and public clouds, is a very secure, very high-performance system. It runs some of the largest banks in the world. It runs some of the largest government agencies in the world, as well as some commercial clients.

You may be familiar with the NIST [National Institute of Standards and Technology] survey? Every month, NIST publishes a list of all of the major operating systems, and how often those operating systems have been the subject of data extrusions, people going in and taking data out. And as you can imagine, that's commonplace in the world that we live in today. Except for us. ClearPath Forward, in the history of the NIST survey, which goes back well over a decade, has never had a forceable extraction of data. So when we talk about Unisys really focusing on security even before it was cool to do so, that's a pretty good example.
