In response to what it sees as changing enterprise security needs, Unisys has pooled its resources to form a dedicated e-security services practice.
The e-security services division will concentrate on best-practice policies and consulting including security assessment, design, implementation, monitoring and maintenance claims a statement released by the company.
The consolidation of the company's security services is designed to compliment its larger services practice claims Tony Bereznicki, Unisys' e-security practice director.
Bereznicki says security in the past has been based around components and software like firewalls and routers, whereas now security is about protecting "e-environments," where the risks are different.
Starting with four personnel, Unisys is looking to grow its e-security practice across Australia and New Zealand to 15 by the end of the year.
Two of these personnel, Ajoy Ghosh and Arran Pearson, are members of several standards committees involved with establishing international and regional IT security standards. These include theStandards Australia IT 12/4 Security Techniques Committee, and the National Information Infrastructure Industry Forum - designed to protect Australia from cyber-terrorism.
According to Bereznicki the e-security division will source a lot of its business through existing Unisys Australia customers, but will also partner with other companies if the opportunity arises.
