With the virtual edition of UKM, major enterprises, financial institutions and federal agencies can:

  • Streamline operations: UKM will include a User Portal that enables organizations to further streamline their operations by enabling users to manage their own keys while implementing defined policies and standards compliance.
  • Boost efficiency and ensure compliance: This helps organizations lower their costs and makes users more productive, while fulfilling the requirements set forth in standards such as PCI-DSS, NIST and HIPAA.
  • Get started quick: The appliance is available for trials today, and an updated release with User Portal functionality will be rolled out during Q42015.

Matthew McKenna, chief commercial officer, SSH Communications Security, said:

“Organizations are struggling to manage Secure Shell keys in a way that is easy to use, centralized and delivers strong security and compliance to boot. Universal SSH Key Manager is a purpose-built, budget-friendly key management solution that helps organizations achieve compliance with Secure Shell key authorizations within even the most complicated network environments. Our customers have found the Universal SSH Key Manager to be flexible and non-disruptive to their business, and this new release will further extend our lead in enabling compliance and productivity.”
