Lumeta Partners With Unisys
SOMERSET, N.J., July 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Lumeta, the leading provider of Network Assurance solutions for enterprises and government agencies, today announced that it has entered into a global agreement with Unisys, a leading provider of technology services and solutions to enterprises worldwide. Unisys will offer Lumeta's IPsonar(R) to clients in both the transportation and communications vertical markets in order to provide them with global visibility into their networks. This global visibility will allow them to identify all devices on those networks, along with the connections between the devices so that they can better balance the forces of change along with demands for availability, security and compliance.
Lumeta's IPsonar actively scans the network to collect all data related to network topology, address space, leaks and device fingerprints. This information is represented in the form of visual maps of the network and shows the difference between the network horizon, or the imagined network perimeter, and the true perimeter. IPsonar highlights the difference between the horizon which is guessed at and the true perimeter. Network and security managers and executives use the data to accurately visualize what is on the network, drilling down to analyze potential areas of risk and identify appropriate corrective actions before, during and after any changes are made to the network.
"We look forward to providing Unisys transportation and communications customers with unique visibility into their network infrastructures," said Lumeta's President & Chief Executive Officer David Hickey. "Unisys has a well-deserved reputation of providing advanced IT solutions to its clients, and the addition of IPsonar will strengthen its already impressive portfolio of offerings."
Under terms of the agreement, Unisys security consultants will offer IPsonar to clients in both the transportation and communications sector. This will allow Unisys to utilize multi-protocol discovery technology to create a comprehensive set of network facts and visualize all connectivity on networks in order to assure that defenses are aligned with the evolving corporate policy.
"IT networks in the airline and communications world are constantly changing with new applications, new channels, and new partners. As a result, these organizations often struggle to assure that all networks remain secure and properly managed," said Gregory Hendricks, Transportation Partner for Unisys Global Commercial Industries. "Combined with Unisys industry expertise and services, Lumeta's technologies will help our customers maximize the effectiveness of their networks while validating that they are secure and highly available, in addition to providing visibility into network risk as organizations either merge with or acquire other companies."
