SSH Founder Tatu Ylonen to Address Shortcomings of Perimeter Security at the 2006 RSA Conference
Secure Shell Creator to Outline Benefits of an End-to-End Communications
HELSINKI, Finland and PALO ALTO, Calif., Feb. 6
/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 Tatu Ylonen, its founder and the inventor of Secure Shell, will present at this year's RSA(R) Conference. Addressing the problems associated with sole reliance on perimeter security, the presentation will take place Tuesday, Feb. 14 at 3:25 p.m. at the RSA Conference in San Jose, Calif. According to Gartner, 70 percent of unauthorized access to information systems is committed by employees, and more than 95 percent of these internal security breaches result in significant financial losses. For these reasons, traditional perimeter security supplied by systems such as firewalls and anti-virus software are no longer sufficient for protecting the enterprise. End-to-end communications security is an advanced solution that overcomes the limitations of perimeter-based enterprise security approaches by protecting data communications from start to finish. Operating between the applications themselves and the IT infrastructure, these systems also enable central management of security software and policies across the enterprise. In his presentation, Ylonen will address the inherent limitations of existing enterprise security approaches in light of new threats and the expanding regulatory environment, and show how end-to-end security and central manageability can deliver an order of magnitude improvement in security against both internal and external risks. In 1995, Tatu Ylonen developed the Secure Shell protocol, the de facto standard for secure remote system administration and file transfer used by millions worldwide, and founded SSH Communications Security. He established and led several companies prior to SSH Communications Security, including Applied Computing Research (ACR) Ltd. in 1994 and New Generation Software (NGS) Ltd. in 1988. Ylonen holds a Master of Science degree in Technology from Helsinki University of Technology. He is a member of ICSA (International Computer Security Association), IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers), ACM (Association for Computing Machinery) and is very active within IETF. He has authored several articles in national and international publications.
