LAS VEGAS, NV­ (Black Hat 2012 Booth #536) ­ July 25, 2012 ­ SSH Communications Security, known the world over as the inventor of the SSH protocol, today announced the launch of its CryptoAuditor solution at the Black Hat USA 2012 conference. The new offering helps prevent data loss across encrypted secure shell, RDP and SFTP traffic with inline, real-time and transparent audit capabilities for financial service providers, retailers and other enterprises transmitting sensitive information. CryptoAuditor is the second module released this year as part of the company¹s Information Assurance Platform.

³We launched the Universal SSH Key Manager module earlier this year at RSA and we have received an excellent response from our customers since then,² said Matthew McKenna, SSH vice president of sales and marketing. ³With the launch of CryptoAuditor, SSH provides the next logical extension to our platform, a fully transparent, centralized privileged access auditing solution, delivering strong data-in-transit security that requires no changes to existing network architecture.²

The Universal SSH Key Manager module and the CryptoAuditor module integrate smoothly into existing enterprise security solutions ­ including DLP and SIEM ­ providing deeper audit and forensics capabilities into encrypted traffic.

Both modules employ sophisticated key management capabilities, including group-based access controls and automatic key discovery, deployment and removal. This critical link between the two modules allows for fully transparent inline deployments, providing strong security, minimal system latency, operating cost reduction and the ability to deploy a single-sign-on effect throughout the entire enterprise.

³Our platform¹s key management capabilities provide controls over who can gain access to what information in secure shell environments,² said Jason Thompson, SSH director of global marketing. ³By combining our key management capabilities with CryptoAuditor, organizations will see immediate ROI by solving issues surrounding auditing, control and key management.²
