History of SSH Communications Security
SSH Communications Security was founded in 1995 by Tatu Ylonen. He had developed a revolutionary security software package called SSH, which still today enables secure use of computers in remote data centers. He started the company to provide commercial support for the software and to develop other cybersecurity solutions.
The company grew to 190 people and $20m in sales by 2000 and went public on NASDAQ OMX Nordic. The company started its US operations in 1998 and has done most of its business in the US since then.
In the early years, the company derived most of its revenue from technology licensing with customers such as Sun Microsystems, Lucent, Compaq, Intel, Juniper, Nokia, Ericsson, NEC, and a hundred other telecommunications, networking, and cybersecurity vendors.
