Using UKM, businesses can map infrastructure authorizations and implement standard Secure Shell key policies across their entire network quickly without disrupting any already compliant processes. Major enterprises, financial institutions, and federal agencies can use UKM to benefit their practices in a variety of ways.

To better streamline operations UKM includes a user portal enabling organizations to allow users to manage their own keys, still implementing defined policies and standards compliance. Organizations will be able to lower their costs and make their users more productive, while meeting requirements in standards such as PCI-DSS, NIST and HIPAA.

The appliance is available for trials today, so it is easy to get started testing, and an updated release with the user portal functionality will be rolled out during Q42015.

“Organizations are struggling to manage Secure Shell keys in a way that is easy to use, centralized and delivers strong security and compliance to boot,” shared Matthew McKenna, chief commercial officer, SSH Communications Security. “Universal SSH Key Manager is a purpose-built, budget-friendly key management solution that helps organizations achieve compliance with Secure Shell key authorizations within even the most complicated network environments. Our customers have found the Universal SSH Key Manager to be flexible and non-disruptive to their business, and this new release will further extend our lead in enabling compliance and productivity.”
