Unisys’ global security channel partner program goes live

Unisys has officially launched a global security channel partner program with a focus on resellers of Unisys Stealth as well as other Unisys security products and services.

In addition, Unisys also names iVision as the 2019 Unisys Security Global Partner of the Year, recognising its success in this space.

The new Unisys Security Global Channel Partner Program designates partners at three performance-based tiers, platinum, gold and silver. It has an array of benefits assigned to each tier.

Registered partners have access to discounts, demos, collateral, co-branded materials and customisable marketing campaigns related to Stealth and other Unisys security offerings.

Other benefits include webinars, partner roadshows and regional events later in 2020. Partner-specific solution overviews with use cases and case studies are also available.

Unisys states by formalising relationships with registered resellers of its security solutions, the company will broaden its client base for its security solutions as well as boost the market reach of partners through the ability to resell industry leading solutions like Stealth.

At the RSA Conference, Unisys also announced the availability of Stealth 5.0, the latest version of this security software. It now provides protection for data in container and Kubernetes environments, improving data centre security and securing new workloads.

Stealth brings clients ‘always on’ security and resilience, stopping sponsored, sophisticated cyber attacks in their tracks. Should an attacker get inside, Stealth prevents data exfiltration to ensure the breach has minimum damage.

When it comes to the global partner of the year award, Unisys states it selected iVision for the award largely due to its client-centric, consultative approach rooted in engineering excellence.

Headquartered in Atlanta, iVision is a technology integration and management firm that provides objective recommendations, process and technology expertise, and best-of-breed guidance.

Unisys Security Solutions vice president Chris Kloes says, “Unisys’ relationship with companies like iVision, our 2019 Unisys Security Global Partner of the Year, illustrate the benefits that can be obtained through successful teaming.

“By registering with the Unisys Security Global Channel Partner Program, other companies can also immediately differentiate themselves with the ability to offer unique and game-changing security solutions like Stealth to their clients across all industry sectors. Resellers can also benefit from ongoing assistance and support from Unisys as they proceed through the sales process.”

Partners can register through the program’s microsite, where they can also find links to information, marketing collateral, sales tools and forthcoming partner-focused events, Unisys states.
