SSH COMMUNICATIONS SECURITY RECEIVES A SIGNIFICANT ORDER FOR UNIVERSAL SSH KEY MANAGER™ SERVICES FROM A MAJOR FINANCIAL INSTITUTION

A major financial institution has placed a significant order for additional Secure Shell key remediation and access control consulting and professional services. The order is a continuation of the on-going project with an expansion of the scope. The total value for this new order is approximately USD 1.1 million. The revenue will be recognized during the fourth quarter of 2014.

A typical SSH key remediation project includes securing IT systems from advanced malware attacks, insider threats, and APT (Advanced Persistent Threat) attacks arising from unmanaged cryptographic keys, including:

  • Deploying Universal SSH Key Manager™
  • Discovering all user keys in the environment and mapping trust relationships
  • Locking down the environment so that only authorized administrators can deploy new Secure Shell keys
  • Identifying, testing, and removing keys that are no longer needed, all while ensuring business continuity
  • Rotating all keys to limit the risks of a compromised key being used by an attacker and to eliminate any backdoors
  • Continuous monitoring and enforcement of proper approvals

Universal SSH Key Manager™ is unique in the marketplace as it is the only full-lifecycle, minimally invasive access control solution that automatically discovers, deploys, rotates, removes, and monitors Secure Shell keys.
