Secure Shell infrastructure.

Historically, organizations relied on the FTP protocol for file transmission. However, legacy FTP is vulnerable to password sniffing and man-in-the-middle attacks. To protect their digital core, enterprises and government organizations need robust Secure Shell infrastructure. It’s essential for secure use of legacy applications and remote commands, secure system administration, and secure automated file transfers.

The Secure Shell-enabled file transfer protocol, SFTP (FTP over SSH), has effectively replaced legacy FTP as the file transfer protocol for enterprises. SFTP is more secure and has the advantages over other protocols of simplified configuration and flexibility with authentication methods, with no need for additional admin and maintenance.

Tectia SSH is the leading mature, commercial SSH client and server solution, backed by SSH.COM, the world’s foremost experts in Secure Shell technologies. It’s the only choice for enterprises that need fast, reliable, secure data flow, like SFTP, for critical IT processes.

Is Tectia right for you?

  • Terabyte file transfers – do you need to cut the costs of secure transfers in high-performance computing, global processing, biotech, genetics, experimental physics, chip design, large-scale simulation etc.?
  • Governmental and federal agencies – are you compliant with FIPS-certified cryptography regulations?
  • Enterprise backups – do you handle large file transfers for backups, disaster recovery, and data synchronization?
  • AWS file transfers – are you counting the cost of your on-premise to cloud transformation?

  • OpenSSH users – do you need to lower lifecycle costs and mitigate the risk of your legacy OpenSSH implementation?
  • Smartcards – do you need to securely manage smartcards, SecureID or 2-factor authentication for SysAdmins?
  • Active Directory – is your enterprise consolidating identities to Active Directory?
  • z/OS mainframes – do you run processes and databases on z/OS that should be encrypted – are you replacing FTP or Telnet?
  • Regulated organizations – do you need to take control of your SSH keys?
