SSH Communications Security Announces Availability of SSH Tectia Server 6.0 for IBM z/OS

Enhanced SSHG3(TM) Architecture Delivers Improved Scalability and Performance; Provides Automatic FTP to SFTP Conversion for Sec

HELSINKI, Finland and WELLESLEY, Mass., May 27 /PRNewswire/ -- SSH Communications Security Corp. (OMX:SSH1V), a world-leading provider of enterprise security solutions and end-to-end communications security, and the original developer of the Secure Shell protocol, today announced the general availability of SSH Tectia(R) Server 6.0 for IBM z/OS.

SSH Tectia Server for IBM z/OS is an advanced, cost-effective, secure file transfer solution for IBM mainframe environments. Offering state-of-the-art encryption and authentication technologies, it allows enterprises to quickly and easily secure file transfers and other data-in-transit across, and between, z/OS, Windows, UNIX, and Linux environments, with no changes to Job Control Language (JCL) tasks or scripts and no modifications to the existing infrastructure or applications.

The new version saves IT teams time and money by delivering automatic FTP (File Transfer Protocol) to SFTP (Secure File Transfer Protocol) conversion. This provides a secure, drop-in replacement for FTP, and also supports transparent FTP tunneling without requiring changes to existing FTP JCL jobs and applications. It also features an enhanced SSHG3(TM) client architecture to deliver improved scalability and performance for SSH Tectia's advanced tunneling capabilities.

The SSH Tectia Server 6.0 for IBM z/OS improves file transfer reliability by providing new checkpoint/restart capabilities that automatically detect and resend all, or a portion, of a file in the event of a transfer interrupt, without requiring that the entire file be resent.

SSH Tectia Server for IBM z/OS 6.0 also adds support for new file transfer commands and parameters, including SITE/LOCSITE, ASCII/BINARY with configurable ASCII/EBCDIC conversion, CONDDISP, and SUNIQUE.

"SSH continues to lead the way by delivering powerful IT security solutions to meet the growing challenges facing mainframe IT managers," said Arto Vainio, CEO, SSH Communications Security, Corp. "With today's increasingly complex and interconnected enterprise IT computing environments, mainframe IT managers require a robust, flexible and easy to administer security solution. SSH Tectia Server 6.0 for IBM z/OS includes a number of usability and performance improvements that, when coupled with robust encryption, makes it the ideal product for securing even the most sensitive mainframe file transfers across the enterprise." SSH Tectia Server for IBM z/OS supports key mainframe features, including native support for Multiple Virtual Storage (MVS) and Unix System Services (USS) file systems, System Management Facility (SMF) logging, automatic character set conversion, strong authentication with support for RACF, ACF2 and TSS through standard SAF calls, X.509v3 certificate support, as well as fast data streaming technology. SSH Tectia Server for IBM z/OS provides strong encryption and authentication using industry-standard cryptographic algorithms, and integrates with IBM's cryptographic hardware facilities that are certified in accordance with the Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) for optimized encryption performance.
