    BMC USERWORLD, SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- SSH
 Communications Security (HEX: SSH1V), a world-leading provider of
 enterprise security solutions and end-to-end communications security, and
 the original developer of the Secure Shell protocol, today announced that
 it will demonstrate seamless, secure file transfers among Multiple Virtual
 Storage (MVS), UNIX and Windows environments at BMC UserWorld 2006 by using
 SSH Tectia(TM) Server for IBM z/OS with BMC Software's CONTROL-M(R)
 integrated scheduling system.
     BMC CONTROL-M/CM for Advanced File Transfer (AFT) provides business
 processing, chaining and scheduling logic, and transforms the CONTROL-M job
 scheduling system into a file transfer scheduling engine. Adding SSH
 Tectia, an enterprise suite of security solutions based on the
 award-winning SSH Secure Shell, ensures that file transfers are made with
 the most robust encryption and authentication available.
     The SSH Tectia solution together with BMC Control-M AFT is an
 enterprise- level combination capable of transferring files from any system
 or host to- and-from the IBM z/OS mainframe "native" MVS area using Secure
 File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) for automatic data conversion. The joint
 solution will provide true secure end-to-end communications.
     "The mainframe remains the preferred repository for corporate data and
 continues to contribute to the growth of UNIX and Windows, which means the
 data must be incorporated into heterogeneous platforms efficiently and
 seamlessly," said George Adams, president and CEO of SSH Communications
 Security, Inc. "By leveraging the advanced, strong encryption of SSH Tectia
 with the file transfer management features of CONTROL-M, enterprises can
 perform reliable, secure and efficient batch file transfers throughout
 their IBM mainframe, UNIX and Windows environments to adjust to today's
 economic demands and meet regulatory requirements."
     SSH is an authorized business partner in BMC Software's MarketZone
 Partner Products Program that promotes the development, marketing and
 distribution of complementary partner products. In addition, SSH Tectia
 Server for IBM z/OS received the IBM ServerProven(R) certification in May
     BMC UserWorld 2006 is the premier educational and user event covering
 all BMC solutions for customers and partners to learn how to further
 benefit from, gain exposure to, and extend their use of solutions in order
 to build a stronger BMC user community.
