SSH Communications Security has joined Novell’s Technology Partner Program and announced that SSH Tectia supports Novell’s SUSE LINUX Enterprise Server 9 running on all IBM eServer platforms.

The new version of the SSH Tectia solution will provide users running SUSE LINUX Enterprise Server 9 with robust, comprehensive enterprise security, including secure system administration, secure application connectivity, and secure file transfer functionality.

“SUSE LINUX Enterprise Server has the highest level of security certification ever reached in the Linux market, Common Criteria Evaluation Assurance Level (EAL) 4+,” said Johan Rosius, VP Alliances EMEA of Novell. “By partnering with SSH, our customers can now get tightly-integrated world-class communications security, complete with comprehensive customer support.”

On Feb. 16, 2005, SSH announced SSH Tectia support for Linux running on IBM eServer platforms. Together, SUSE LINUX Enterprise Server 9 and SSH Tectia provide a complementary solution for customers to securely administer, transfer files to/from, and authenticate and protect connections to applications running on IBM eServers. With support for IBM eServer and SUSE LINUX, SSH now offers the most comprehensive LINUX support for IBM and other enterprise-class servers.

“Linux enterprise servers are fast becoming part of mission-critical IT infrastructure and an ideal opportunity for large enterprises, financial institutions, and government agencies to benefit from SSH Tectia’s FIPS certified enterprise-class managed security solution, ” said Arto Vainio, CEO of SSH Communications Security. “By partnering with Novell, we combine two best of breed solutions for our joint customers and gain increased access among enterprise customers for whom Novell is a household name.”

The new version of the SSH Tectia solution will be generally available in March. Pricing is based on the number and type of applications supported and the number of servers and clients.
