Tectia Launches Flexible Subscription Model for Securing IBM z/OS


__Helsinki, Finland & Wellesley, MA, USA - __ Tectia,(HEL: TEC1V) the market maker in real-time information security, has introduced a new pricing policy that makes it possible to subscribe to its mainframe security solutions. Starting September 1st, 2010 Tectia security solutions for IBM z/OS are available with no upfront license fee.

Tectia security solutions are among the first enterprise security solutions to fully integrate the SSH protocol and SFTP to the IBM z/OS platform for secure mainframe access in a single product, providing better security than other available solutions.

This is our immediate response to our customers' needs and the requirements of the market. It also fulfills a key objective of making it easy for our customers to do business with us. Many clients want to avoid drawing down on capital expenditure and prefer to treat these overheads as operational expenses, thus spreading the cost of information security over many years rather than committing to upfront payments, said Jouni Leinonen, Tectia COO & EVP for Customer and Market Operations.

The Tectia subscription model for IBM z/OS imposes no lower or upper limits on the value of the subscription. What's more, customers can get subscriptions for terms of three years or more. This means that they benefit from greater convenience and flexibility in planning and implementing their mainframe security.

Tectia Corporation, formerly SSH Communications Security Corp., is a security solutions company for modern, networked organizations.
