HELSINKI, Finland and WALTHAM, Mass., Dec. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- SSH Communications Security, known the world over as the inventor of the ubiquitous Secure Shell and SFTP protocols, today announced that one of Europe's largest IT cloud services providers has selected SSH's CryptoAuditor™ solution to monitor encrypted traffic across the provider's data centers. The deal, valued at €1 million, includes both software licenses and maintenance.
Tatu Ylönen, CEO and founder of SSH Communications Security, said:
"As has been seen in recent high profile breaches, unmonitored encrypted channels allow attackers to secretly "exfiltrate" data by blinding security operations and forensics teams to the exploit itself, what was taken and to where. CryptoAuditor is uniquely positioned to help cloud services providers - and data centers in general - monitor and control access to their infrastructure, applications and data. Because the solution is designed to operate in an inline fashion, it is completely transparent to administrators, minimally disruptive to existing workflows, while still providing a full audit trail via advanced search capabilities and a visual replay for all interactive and machine-to-machine SSH, SFTP and RDP connections."
