The University of North Carolina at Charlotte selected SSH Tectia to ensure secure file transfer and secure system administration with centralized management functionality for its complex, data-intensive campus computer network.
With nearly three hunred servers and multiple networking environments, including Red Hat Linux, Solaris and Windows 2003, UNC Charlotte relies on the SSH Tectia client/server solution to meet the daily challenge of effectively securing the vast amount of data accessed by more than twenty thousand students, eight hundred full-time faculty members and staff. In addition, SSH Tectia Manager will help UNC Charlotte's IT staff easily and effectively deploy pre-configured SSH Tectia software to both clients and servers, manage and administer security policy, and enable auditing.
UNC Charlotte will also deploy SSH Tectia Connector, an invisible desktop client ideal for large end-user environments to enable secure application connectivity. SSH Tectia Connector automatically creates a transparent secure tunnel when a TCP/IP connection is established.
"Being a major university that rivals many large enterprise environments, one of the biggest challenges we faced was effectively managing all security policies across UNC Charlotte's multiple servers and operating environments," said University IT Security Officer Carter Heath.
The SSH Tectia solution is based on the SSH Secure Shell and SSH's other industry leading technologies. SSH Tectia enables secure system administration, secure file transfer and secure application connectivity with centralized management throughout the internal and external network. SSH Tectia products provide transparent strong encryption and authentication, and are available for all key enterprise platforms including Windows, UNIX, Linux and mainframes to easily integrate into heterogeneous network environments.
