SSH HELPS SECURE NEXT-GEN SANS.

SSH Communications Security (HEX:SSH1V), a developer of Internet security solutions, has announced the SSH QuickSec Toolkit for SAN (Storage Area Network), the industry's first IPSec (Internet Protocol Security) toolkit designed for developers who need to integrate advanced security into storage systems and devices.

Within the enterprise market, there is increasing interest in cost-effective and manageable storage solutions. IP-based storage technologies such as iSCSI (Internet Small Computer System Interface) allow customers to take advantage of existing, competitively priced IP infrastructure. In data center environments, iSCSI utilizes the full potential of high-speed local area networking technologies such as Gigabit Ethernet. iSCSI also leverages almost universal connectivity provided by Internet infrastructure, allowing manageable multi-site backup and replication functionality to ensure continuity of critical business processes.

"As SAN developers begin to implement storage using IP and iSCSI, there is an increased need to secure these communications," said George Adams, president and CEO of SSH Communications Security, Inc. "These companies must integrate strong authentication technologies into their storage infrastructures to ensure a `hacker proof' network. As the leading provider of IPSec technology to OEMs, our new QuickSec solution meets these needs by providing the highest level of encryption with integrated strong authentication."

"The availability of robust, standards-based, interoperable security solutions, are critical for the broad deployment of iSCSI and TCP Offload," said Ram Jayam, vice president and general manager of Adaptec's Storage Networking Group. "Integrating SSH's QuickSec software with our innovative security hardware, will provide time-to-market advantages and enable security for data and storage networks."

IPSec is an IETF (Internet Engineering Task Force) standard for protecting IP traffic using cryptography on the packet level. SSH's IPSec solutions are the leading toolkits for IPSec implementation in secure local and global communications. SSH's IPSec toolkits provide scalable, robust security for IP networks, and supports multiple operating systems as well as the industry's latest Internet standards. These standards include IPv6, enhanced PKI (Public Key Infrastructure), and the new AES cryptography standard. With SSH's IPSec solutions, OEM customers benefit from a high level of security, with considerable savings in product development time and delivery.
