SSH Communications Security Now Supports Monitoring of All Major Encryption Channels


CryptoAuditor Solution Updated to Deliver SSL/TLS Interception, Monitoring and DLP Integration for Greater Control and Visibility of Encrypted Channels

HELSINKI and WALTHAM, Mass., 29 April, 2014 - SSH Communications Security, known the world over as the inventor of the ubiquitous Secure Shell and SFTP protocols, today announced that its CryptoAuditor solution now supports SSL/TLS decryption, monitoring and DLP integration, representing encrypted channel monitoring support for all major data-in-transit encryption protocols.

CryptoAuditor Facts

  • Unmonitored, uncontrolled and unaudited encrypted channels leave organizations vulnerable to data leakage and malicious insider threats.
  • CryptoAuditor helps prevent data loss across encrypted channel traffic with inline, real-time and transparent audit capabilities for financial service providers, retailers and other enterprises transmitting sensitive information.
  • CryptoAuditor can intercept, monitor, record and replay the content of the most common data-in-transit encryption protocols used in enterprise environments for interactive and automated sessions.
  • Expanded support enables organizations to monitor and control SSL/TLS, Secure Shell, SFTP and RDP connections, closing security gaps and reducing the risk posed by advanced external threats.

Sami Ahvenniemi, CEO Americas, SSH Communications Security, said:

“Hackers and malicious insiders are seeking new ways to steal sensitive data by compromising trust, even going so far as to use encrypted channels to hide movement inside the network. With the addition of SSL/TLS to the portfolio of encryption protocols supported by CryptoAuditor, financial institutions, federal agencies and major organizations can deploy holistic, preventative measures to view, monitor and prevent misuse of encrypted channels.”
