New Version of Tectia Guardian

Helsinki, Finland & Wellesley, MA, USA - Tectia Corporation, formerly SSH Communications Security Corp. (HEL: TEC1V), the market maker in real-time security software for modern, networked organizations, today announced the release of a new version of Tectia Guardian, which provides the fastest track to enforcing security controls, meeting security standards, and ensuring business continuity.

Tectia Guardian is part of Tectia Manage Solutions, which allow organizations to ensure that their critical business infrastructure is secure, reliable, and compliant with relevant industry regulations and standards. Tectia Guardian in particular provides a proactive set of security controls for critical data channels to minimize the risk of security breaches.

It is a unique governance tool, which integrates into existing IDS/DLP (Intrusion Detection System/Data Loss Prevention) solution. It allows enterprises and governmental agencies to activate auditing and control of their critical services and outsourced IT operations without changing their daily operations, infrastructure, or user experience, ensuring the lowest implementation and operational costs.

The inspection, full replay, and archiving of internal and external remote administration connections helps to ensure accountability and meets the data security compliance requirements of regulations such as the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX), Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA), and U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) directives and other mandates requiring encrypted traffic to be inspected, audited and controlled.

Tectia Guardian 3.0 enhances its comprehensive list of supported protocols, allowing companies using VMWare View™ and the latest Windows™ protocols to take full advantage of their environment. Support for secure file transfer protocols allows organizations to extend auditing and control from remote system administration to secure file transfers.  Available as a virtual appliance, Tectia Guardian 3.0 also provides enhanced availability, and search and reporting functions.

“Tectia Guardian is the only solution available that logs and records every session transparently and performs a step-by-step inspection and auditing of both encrypted and unencrypted traffic to identify any potential threats to the internal and external network.” said Jouni H. Leinonen, COO & EVP of Customer and Market Operations of Tectia Corporation. “Full playback and archiving of sessions creates a valuable auditing and forensics tool eliminating many potential security threats and ensuring regulatory compliance.”
