Unisys CEO Peter Altabef On Security, Cloud, IoT

Joseph F. Kovar

Public and private clouds are among clients' most pressing issues. How big a part of Unisys' business is from the cloud? 

A very substantive part. Our solution for that is called CloudForte. We were the first provider to help a U.S. government agency get to the cloud. The very first one. Whether it is working for governments around the world, or working for companies, we think it's really critical that they utilize the public cloud as well as hybrid cloud environments. I think anybody that is fighting that effort is fighting a losing battle.

That said, all of computing will certainly not go to the public cloud. But it is, and should be, an integral part of almost any organization's strategy. What products like [Unisys] Stealth do is not only encrypt data at rest, but also encrypt data in motion. Stealth not only protects the data inside either the public cloud or private cloud, but also protects the data in the journey between the two clouds. ... Migrating to the cloud doesn't mean leaving the stuff in the cloud.
