AUSTIN, Texas, Dec. 9, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Pragma Systems, a leading provider of enterprise-class remote access and security software for servers and mobile devices, announces that its Fortress SSH Server and SSH ClientSuite completed full scale support and integration of Gemalto's Department of Defense CAC (Common Access Card) cards and Gemalto .NET cards. In addition, support for x. 509 v3 certificates provides secure encryption capabilities for government, military and enterprise customers that require the highest level of security and encryption accepted by the most stringent government and defense standards.
Pragma SSH is in compliance with the latest government mandated security standards. Using Gemalto's CAC technology allows for rapid authentication and enhanced security for all physical and logical access across many government and infrastructure systems. Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) certificates embedded in the card allow cardholders to perform single sign-on, establish secure online network connections, securely transfer files, "sign" documents digitally and encrypt emails.
"Gemalto is committed to providing our government customers with strong and secure identity credentials," said Neville Pattinson, VP Government Programs, Gemalto North America. "With integrations expanding into all elements of the network and remote connections, moving data is both secure and convenient."
"This is a key milestone for the company," said David Kulwin, CTO of Pragma Systems. "Customers with heightened security requirements can now deploy Pragma's popular SSH with DoD compliant smart cards and x509 certificates to achieve maximum security."
Pragma's SSH solutions works out of the box with Gemalto's smart card offerings providing a fully capable, functional offering for a variety of government agencies to use the most complete remote and secure access solution available in the industry. Pragma SSH is integrated with Microsoft Active Directory, PKI and Certificate store, thus easing deployment across large Windows enterprise networks.
