SSH Communications Security Expands Global Footprint with New German Office


Location to Serve as Hub for DACH-Focused Data Security Market Activities

HELSINKI, Finland and WALTHAM, Mass. – SSH Communications Security, known the world over as the inventor of the ubiquitous Secure Shell and SFTP protocols, today announced the opening of a new office in Wiesbaden, Germany. The office will serve as the company’s hub for all market activities related to Germany, Austria and Switzerland (DACH) within Europe.

Key SSH Facts:

  • SSH Communications Security recognizes the strategic importance of Germany in today’s global IT market, and is opening its Wiesbaden location to provide localized services specific to the DACH market.
  • Mismanaged Secure Shell keys expose organizations to compliance issues and severe security risks especially when keys authorizing high levels of administrative privilege are uncontrolled and their use unmonitored.
  • SSH will align its solutions to the requirements of the local German market, addressing requirements such as PCI DSS, SOX and HIPAA, as well as the best practice recommendations from the Bundesamt für Sicherheit in der Informationstechnik (BSI).
  • Universal SSH Key Manager is the industry’s only comprehensive Secure Shell access solution that automates the discovery, management, monitoring and reporting of Secure Shell keys in the network environment, thereby saving time and money while significantly reducing risk.
