Security Features



HELSINKI, Finland, and WELLESLEY, Mass., March 18

/PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- SSH Communications Security (OMX: SSH1V), a
 leading global provider of secure file-transfer and end-to-end
 communications security solutions for the enterprise, today announced that
 SSH Tectia Client/Server 6.0 now supports the Sun Solaris 10 operating
 system running on Sun SPARC and x86-64 platforms, and also supports Solaris
 Zones. Solaris Zones is a new method of providing secure, flexible,
 scalable, and lightweight virtualized OS services that function like
 independent Solaris systems.
 
     Support for Solaris 10 provides users the combined benefit of SSH
 Tectia's unsurpassed secure system administration, secure file transfers
 and application connectivity capabilities with the robust built-in security
 features of the Solaris 10 operating system. An ideal complement for Sun
 servers running the SunSSH utility is the newly released SSH Tectia
 ConnectSecure.
 
     SSH Tectia ConnectSecure works with any Secure Shell (SSH) server
 product and features automatic and transparent File Transfer Protocol (FTP)
 to Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) conversion, with a configurable FTP
 fallback option for ease of migration and transparent FTP tunneling. SSH
 Tectia ConnectSecure delivers advanced SSH Tectia FTP functionality to SSH
 and OpenSSH servers, including SunSSH servers, without modification to the
 existing infrastructure or applications.
 
     SSH Tectia's support of Solaris Zones enables customers to securely
 meet the growing demand for virtualization capabilities as more enterprises
 adopt the Solaris platform for tasks once reserved for large mainframes.
 Solaris Zones allow large, high-performance systems to operate as if they
 were two or more independent servers, completely isolated from one another,
 providing a level of security previously unavailable. SSH Tectia and Sun
 Solaris provide powerful, cost-effective solutions with best-of-breed
 security features.
 
     "Our support for Solaris Zones was the result of real-world needs by a
 wide range of our major enterprise customers with critical data sensitivity
 requirements," said George Adams, president and CEO of SSH Communications
 Security, Inc. "Now, Sun users everywhere can enjoy the unparalleled
 protection of SSH Tectia, whether they employ Solaris with Global or Local
 Zones. In addition, we embrace Sun's commitment to the x86 hardware
 architecture and are delighted that Solaris users can now enable end-to-end
 security with SSH Tectia, whether they use Sun SPARC or x86 systems."
 
     SSH Tectia provides end-to-end security for data in transit in large,
 heterogeneous, enterprise networks, where Solaris operating systems are
 commonly used. SSH Tectia provides the finest in authentication and
 encryption methods, including support for X.509 certificates, public keys,
 3DES, AES, DSA, and RSA. Its broad platform support ensures seamless,
 secure data communications for Solaris systems communicating with other key
 enterprise computing platforms, including Linux, UNIX, Windows, and IBM
 z/OS platforms.
