SSH and Javerdel Join Forces to Enhance Cloud Services Security
__Helsinki, Finland & Wellesley, MA, USA - __ SSH Communications Security (HEL:SSH1V), the market maker in real-time security software for modern networked organizations, today announced a strategic partnership with Javerdel, a Finnish ICT service provider.
The ultimate goal of the parties is to establish highly secure ICT services offering - “Dedicated Cloud” - to enterprise customers. Enterprises' increasing dependency on their confidential business data combined with the growing outsourcing phenomenon requires a completely new approach to ensure safe business operations.
One of Javerdel's enterprise customers, an industrial company with business operations in several European countries and in USA, realized a need for stronger authentication for all users that remotely access confidential business data. Javerdel proposed a combination of Tectia MobileID and remote access VPN as a service. According to the customer the new solution was quickly deployed, is extremely easy to use, and fits commercially well to their way to purchase ICT services.
“We decided to apply Tectia MobileID to our cloud services business model since mobile authentication provides us a new way to enhance the security of our enterprise customers. The rich feature set of SSH Tectia MobileID allows us to integrate it with the other modern identity and access management technologies used in our data centers. We envision that enhanced security soon becomes a vital part of every successful cloud services offering,” said Jussi Haverinen, CEO of Javerdel.
“We are happy to hear that Javerdel has successfully deployed Tectia MobileID to secure end customer's international business operations. We look forward to continue our co-operation with Javerdel in our mission towards more secure, enterprise-class cloud services. We aim to utilize the knowledge to address the cloud service security challenges globally," said Jari Mielonen, CEO of SSH Communications Security.
