HELSINKI, Finland, June 9, 2009 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SSH Communications Security, a forerunning provider of enterprise security solutions and end-to-end communications security, today introduced SSH Tectia MFT Events and SSH Tectia MFT Auditor. These new Managed File Transfer (MFT) solutions enable enterprise and government customers to easily and cost-effectively manage, monitor, and secure file and data transfers of sensitive information.

The new SSH Tectia MFT solutions provide faster paths to governance and compliance for critical business process data flows, saving time and money by:

* Leveraging existing technologies already in the IT infrastructure

* Maintaining existing business processes; not forcing costly dataflow re-engineering

* Enabling faster, lower-cost and more reliable automation of secure managed data flows with a GUI-based tool and standardized event templates, instead of error-prone and resource-intensive scripting* Making business processes more reliable by automating the way dataflows are maintained and confirmed, and by executing operator alerts and alternative event chains in error situations

SSH Tectia MFT Events enables enterprise users to automate and execute file transfer operations and remote commands via an intuitive, easy-to-use graphical user interface. It enables easy composition and automation of file transfers, based on system events and remote command execution, and provides guaranteed content delivery, file integrity checking, and troubleshooting capabilities.

SSH Tectia MFT Events scales to large internal and external networks in Windows, Unix, Linux, IBM z/OS, and Linux for System z environments, and integrates with existing IT infrastructure and business processes, to meet key compliance, governance, auditing, and forensics requirements.

"Visibility, management, monitoring, enforcement, provisioning, and automation are critical challenges that resonate at all levels of a company," said Frank Kenney, research director for Applications Strategy and Governance, Gartner Research. "Applying these attributes to manage file transfers enables companies to really understand and fully govern what amounts to more than two-thirds of their data movement inside and outside the enterprise. It's no longer an issue of secure transport only; it's a mandate for control that will drive present and future deployments of infrastructure."

SSH Tectia MFT Auditor is the first file transfer monitoring tool for SSHTectia, OpenSSH and many server OS-embedded SSH environments that helps speed up daily security operations and processes, while reducing costs of ownership and maintenance. The powerful yet easy-to-use solution enables users to easily track and resolve failed file transfers, identify unauthorized file operations, monitor file transfer statistics and volumes over time, and ensure non-repudiation of the log data via a centralized log database. SSH Tectia MFT Auditor also generates detailed reports and provides visibility for the file transfer operators, auditors and compliance managers to easily verify that the file transfer operations meet governance, auditing and compliance requirements.SSH Communications Security also offers a variety of MFT and security consulting services to assist customers, as well as their integration and outsourcing partners, in all phases of the SSH Tectia MFT implementation and operation. SSH Tectia Managed File Transfer Consulting Services provide the review and design of customer data and file transfer architectures, for effective migration to secured, managed and auditable data and file transfer operations.

"The new SSH Tectia MFT products provide immediate business benefits by streamlining processes and file transfer operations, reducing the risk and cost of human error, and by facilitating regulatory compliance," said Jari Mielonen, CEO of SSH Communications Security. "When deployed with our existing secure file transfer and management products, the SSH Tectia solution provides enterprise and government customers with a comprehensive, reliable and powerful security solution to protect all sensitive financial, corporate, and customer data."

SSH Tectia MFT Events and SSH Tectia MFT Auditor will be available in June 2009 directly from SSH Communications Security, and from its global network of distribution partners. Visit for more information.
