Unisys’ focus on security is surging, with nearly 20 percent of its revenue in 2019 coming from the security business, says Vishal Gupta, the company’s global chief technology officer.

”We’ve been laser-focused on not just a secure operating system, which we’ve had a long genesis on, but also offering innovative security products,” he says.

In a video interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA 2020, Gupta discusses:

  • The tipping point for moving toward security;
  • Technology innovations in security offerings;
  • Key challenges and recommendations for security practitioners.

Gupta was elected a senior vice president, technology, by the Unisys board of directors in July 2018. He is responsible for driving Unisys' technology business through an integrated digital strategy for the company's solutions, including products and services for foundational Unisys technologies, as well as for vertical-industry applications. Gupta previously held senior leadership roles with Cisco Systems, Metasolv Software, Nortel Networks and Mercer Management Consulting.
