have inked a deal to cooperate on security and emergency management tools, the companies said Monday.

Unisys will integrate Microsoft's technology into its Information Sharing Management framework. Using this ISM system, government agencies can share information on domestic security, including details on potential terrorists and threats.

Such information may originate from federal or state homeland security agencies, driver's license registries or professional license registries.

"The Unisys ISM framework gets the right information to the right people at the right time, improving the quality of responses to homeland defense, emergency management and criminal justice incidents," Tim Bloechl, Microsoft's chief of public safety and national security said in a statement.

Unisys shares added 3 cents to $5.86 while Microsoft dipped 20 cents to $27.67 in recent Monday trading.
