SSH.COM IP, patents and licensing program
Investing in IP since 1997
A Deep Portfolio
We take pride in our deep patent portfolio that has been developed since 1997. SSH.COM has over 50 significant patents and dozens of applications pending.
In addition to the patents, we protect our key intellectual property with trademarks, copyrights, and other available means.
SSH.COM was a key contributor in the development of the IPSec (IP Security) protocol, and patents used in IPSec solutions. IPSec is a central part of VPN and firewall solutions connecting home users to offices, the increasingly popular IPv6 Internet protocol and cellular systems, making the SSH patent portfolio valuable in related industries. IPSec is also used in DSL modems, mobile phones, and telecommunications infrastructure.
Better network protection
SSH.COM has several pending patents for its NQX products in relation to the implementation of high-performance firewalls and line encryption solutions. Firewall technology is rapidly changing due to new hardware and software architectures that enable faster, more flexible, and more secure processing and modern web-based user interfaces.
Keeping keys in order
SSH Key Management
SSH.COM has an extensive and unrivaled portfolio of issued and pending patents related to SSH key management. Many of the applications have a 2011-2012 priority date. They cover almost all aspects of SSH key management and underpin our class-leading software.
Into the new frontier
Cloud security and DevOps
SSH.CO has a number of patents and pending patent applications that it expects to become fundamental in the areas of cloud secrets management, cloud access management, cloud access security brokers (CASB), and the management of SSH keys and other credentials in the cloud.
