HELSINKI, Finland and WALTHAM, Mass., August 27, 2013 – SSH Communications Security, known the world over as the inventor of the ubiquitous Secure Shell and SFTP protocols, today announced that it has been selected as a finalist in the Annual 2013 Golden Bridge Awards in two categories: Network Security Management and Encryption Key Management Innovations.
Key News Facts:
Mismanaged Secure Shell keys expose organizations to compliance issues and severe security risks, especially when keys authorizing high levels of administrative privilege are uncontrolled and their use unmonitored.
Universal SSH Key Manager is the industry’s only comprehensive Secure Shell access control solution that automates the discovery, management, monitoring and reporting of Secure Shell keys in the network environment, saving time and money while significantly reducing risk.
SSH’s CryptoAuditor solution delivers immediate control and accountability over privileged access users, closing significant security gaps and reducing the risk from advanced external threats by controlling and monitoring information as it moves throughout the environment.
SSH’s access control services facilitate risk, audit and compliance processes by discovering and remediating Secure Shell access control related security issues.
Tatu Ylönen, CEO and founder of SSH Communications Security, said:
“Many organizations’ network environments are filled with lost or forgotten Secure Shell keys, many of which are used for machine-to-machine (M2M) access that makes up 90 percent of the network environment. We are committed to our customers’ security by helping them prevent data breaches while aligning with compliance regulations. Being named a Golden Bridge Awards finalist in two categories this year underscores the demand for significant Secure Shell key management solutions and value we provide our customers.”
