Key SSH facts:
- Universal SSH Key Manager is the industry's only Secure Shell access control solution that automates the discovery, management, monitoring and reporting of Secure Shell keys in the network environment, saving time and money while significantly reducing risk.
- SSH's CryptoAuditor solution delivers control over privileged access users, closing significant security gaps and reducing the risk from advanced external threats by controlling and monitoring information as it moves throughout the Secure Shell environment.
- Mismanaged Secure Shell keys expose organizations to compliance issues and severe security risks, especially when keys authorizing high levels of administrative privilege are uncontrolled and their use unmonitored.

Tatu Ylonen, CEO and founder of SSH Communications Security, said:
