By CIOReview | Wednesday, April 15, 2015

FREMONT, CA: Unisys Corporation, announces that NASA has selected  the company to compete for task orders to provide a range of information technology products and services to federal government agencies under the new Solutions for Enterprise-Wide Procurement (SEWP) V contract.

SEWP V helps Unisys to expand the range of products and services it provides to federal agencies. Availability of Unisys Stealth cybersecurity software and the Forward! by Unisys enterprise computing platform on SEWP V can be noted as an example at this instance.

Unisys Stealth cybersecurity solution uses advanced data protection and encryption technologies to help organizations mitigate cybersecurity attacks and hacker incidents by rendering devices, data and end users undetectable on the network. Stealth creates secure "communities of interest" within an enterprise where only authorized users can access information. Users outside those communities cannot access the information or even know that it exists.

Forward! by Unisys- a breakthrough fabric-based platform brings unmatched levels of mission-critical security, availability, scalability and predictable computing performance to workloads running on Intel-based servers. Each workload runs in a separate partition with dedicated resources, eliminating the resource contention that often accompanies standard virtualization. With its blend of mission-critical performance and open-systems flexibility, Forward! by Unisys is ideal for running secure cloud and big data workloads, boosting the performance of ERP applications such as SAP, consolidating data center resources, and migrating from legacy UNIX systems.

"For decades, SEWP has been one of the most widely used IT contracts in the federal government, and we are looking forward to continuing to provide our innovative technology solutions through SEWP V," says Venkatapathi "PV" Puvvada, president, Unisys Federal Systems. "This new contract will open the door for Unisys to provide an even greater range of IT products and associated services to federal agencies."
