These new additions to the Tectia product family will ensure that SSH’s secure remote access solutions are future-proof and meet the challenges posed by quantum computing and cloudification.

A new rising threat to cybersecurity

The new threat customers face is recording attacks on current cryptography. Quantum Computers are not yet usable for breaking encryption, but data traffic can be recorded and decrypted later in a short period of time, compromising secrets with long-term value.

With Tectia 6.6, organizations can prepare for new threats and ensure the safety of critical data. Tectia Quantum-Safe Edition protects critical remote access, file transfers, and tunneling connections against the quantum threat already today.

Secure Shell (SSH) protocol enables online connections and file transfers between applications handling critical data. Tectia is the original commercial implementation of the SSH protocol.

“Tectia Quantum-Safe Edition 6.6 is now available to our customers. Supported by our Zero Trust access control platform, the product efficiently combats new threats against traditional encryption. Quantum-Safe addresses the next challenge in cybersecurity and guarantees the safety of critical data,” says Dr. Teemu Tunkelo, SSH CEO.

“Some of our customers, like some distinguished banks, are deploying the solution in the first wave because they want to remain futureproof.  The cybersecurity landscape is becoming increasingly challenging, which causes our customers in many other market segments to respond,” Teemu concludes.
