security middleware even further by offering a fully invisible corporate
end-user security client with dynamic tunneling capabilities eliminating the
end-user training need and helpdesk costs.
"We created SSH Tectia, the first true managed security middleware
solution, in collaboration with our large enterprise customers to ease the
burden of deploying, managing and scaling security solutions in large
environments," said Tatu Ylonen, founder and CTO of SSH Communications
Security Corp. "SSH Tectia client/server solution provides secure end-to-end

remote users. We are pleased to announce SSH Tectia Connector, a
revolutionary, transparent end-user client for Windows to meet the security
needs of enterprises, financial and government institutions worldwide."
SSH Tectia client/server solution consists of three product modules: SSH
Tectia Server 4.0, SSH Tectia Client 4.0 and SSH Tectia Connector 4.0. Based
on proven SSH Secure Shell technology, SSH Tectia Client/Server 4.0 and SSH
Tectia Connector 4.0 use standards-based encryption and authentication,
supporting the most popular encryption algorithms and authentication
management technologies. Other features include:
-- RSA SecurID(R) Compatibility: Provides two-factor authentication and
strong encryption for government and enterprise applications.
-- NIST Approved Crypto Algorithm (Pending FIPS 140-2 Certification):
Offers an optional NIST approved certified cryptographic module for use
in government and financial applications.
-- Integration to Windows Domain (NT and 2000) Authentication: Ability to
use the Windows authentication through GSS-API (Generic Security
Services API) to enable single sign-on functionality in Windows
SSH Tectia Connector
Developed specifically for the enterprise, SSH Tectia Connector allows
corporate end-users to connect to business applications like ERP (Enterprise
Resource Planning) or CRM (Customer Relationship Management) automatically and
transparently each time an IP connection is established. When used in
conjunction with SSH Tectia Manager, SSH Tectia Connector enables a scalable
and cost-effective deployment of desktop security throughout the organization,
eliminating the need for onsite configuration and end-user training. Thus,
the user can perform secure data transfer and application tunneling according
to organizational security policies without the user even knowing that such
security measures are in place.
