SSH Communications Security Corp. released SSH Tectia Client 6.0, SSH Tectia Server 6.0, SSH Tectia Manager 6.0, and the new, innovative SSH Tectia ConnectSecure 6.0.
Enterprises and government agencies are faced with increasing pressure from regulatory compliance mandates such as PCI DSS and SOX, as well as internal and external audits to secure their mission-critical data. SSH Tectia 6.0 is a solution for those organizations that need to secure their file transfers and data-in-transit to help achieve regulatory compliancy and meet government regulations with minimal resource overhead.
Leveraging SSH’s in-depth experience with major network security deployments and the pervasive SSH protocol, SSH Tectia ConnectSecure 6.0 works with any commercial SSH or OpenSSH server product. It includes automatic and transparent FTP to SFTP conversion, Transparent FTP Tunneling, and Transparent TCP Tunneling modules, which enable organizations to secure their business-critical data without modification to their existing network infrastructure or applications.
