Helsinki, Finland & Wellesley, MA, USA - SSH Communications Security (HEL:SSH1V), the market maker in real-time security software for modern networked organizations, has received a Tectia license order from AGCO SISU POWER.

AGCO SISU POWER, one of the world's leading makers of diesel engines, has decided to launch a secure collaboration portal for sharing business-critical data with key customers and partners. AGCO SISU POWER manufactures over 30,000 diesel engines per year and is part of AGCO Corporation, world's third largest developer and manufacturer of agricultural machinery. SSH provided them Tectia MFT Portal which is a secure file sharing portal that can be used from any platform using a standard web browser. With the help of an advanced two-factor authentication system, Tectia MobileID, SSH can provide increased security and prevent user account misuse. The Tectia deployment starts in the beginning of 2010 and the service will become globally available for AGCO SISU POWER's customers during early 2010.
