SSH Launches Tectia Quantum-Safe and Zero-Trust Editions for the Next Wave of Secure Application Communications

SSH announces two new editions of its flagship product Tectia SSH Client Server: Tectia Quantum Safe Edition and Tectia Zero Trust Edition. These new additions to the Tectia product family will ensure that SSH’s secure remote access solutions remain agile, dynamic and robust enough to meet the challenges posed by quantum computing and cloudification.

The Secure Shell (SSH) protocol enables online connections and file transfers between systems handling critical data. Tectia is the original commercial implementation of the SSH protocol, providing secure point-to-point remote access, file transfer, and tunneling connections between and to applications.

Quantum computing presents a challenge for encryption in the near future by threatening to render classical cryptography useless. Even now, transmissions are logged and then decrypted when cryptographically relevant quantum computers are available, making long-term secrets vulnerable as we speak. Tectia Quantum Safe Edition protects critical remote access, file transfers and tunnel connections against the quantum threat.

Tectia Zero Trust Edition introduces an efficient role-based access control (RBAC) upgrade to bring scalability to managing access to large server farms. By operating without permanent credentials like SSH keys or passwords, Tectia Zero Trust Edition eliminates the costly process of managing or rotating credentials while dramatically improving system security by removing a significant potential attack vector. Additionally, it increases transparency by centralizing system audit logs.

“Quantum Safe and Zero Trust are the two cornerstones of our solution portfolio. I am extremely proud that we have upgraded Tectia with technologies that will keep our customers secure for the long term while making their environments more dynamic,” says SSH CEO Dr. Teemu Tunkelo. “Tectia has a very strong and loyal customer base, particularly in the financial sector,” continues Teemu. “So it’s no surprise that our first Tectia Quantum and Tectia Zero Trust customers are banks, as these companies want to stay one step ahead of the cybersecurity game.”

Tectia Quantum-Safe Edition will be available to customers in Q2 2022. Tectia Zero-Trust Edition is immediately available to customers.
