LAS VEGAS – BLACK HAT USA – The company responsible for the SSH protocol, SSH Communications Security, announced a new product from the show floor at Black Hat this morning in Las Vegas. Called CryptoAuditor, the offering is the second one released this year as part of SSH’s information assurance platform, following the release of the Universal SSH Key Manager during the RSA Conference.

SSH LogoCryptoAuditor will help prevent data loss across encrypted secure shell, RDP, and SFTP traffic, the company explained in a press release. When combined with their Universal SSH Key Manager, the two will work alongside any existing security and auditing setups, including DLP and SIEM. Both modules employ key management capabilities, including group-based access controls and automatic key discovery, deployment and removal.

“Our platform’s key management capabilities provide controls over who can gain access to what information in secure shell environments,” said Jason Thompson, SSH director of global marketing.

“By combining our key management capabilities with CryptoAuditor, organizations will see immediate ROI by solving issues surrounding auditing, control and key management.”

SSH Communications Security will be in Las Vegas during the Black Hat security briefings, and more details on their information assurance platform is available here
