PRESS RELEASE: The US Patent Office has granted SSH Communications Security Corporation a further patent for PrivX® technology

Helsinki, Finland – March 17, 2021 – The US Patent Office (USPTO) has granted SSH patent number  US10951421 that covers the monitoring of connections established using ephemeral certificate-based passwordless access.

The invention enables monitoring of the PrivX connections established using temporary secure certificates. This enables the enterprises to monitor the access and activities performed by PrivX users, and thus helps prevent fraud, provides a clear audit trail, and ensures secure access to critical systems, applications, and data.

Monitoring of the connections and user actions is especially important in regulated industries such as banking and insurance as well as in applications where users are accessing highly sensitive data. The patented invention allows a unique combination of extremely secure passworldless access and monitoring of the encrypted connections previously not possible.

"We are pleased that the US Patent Office has yet again recognized the uniqueness of our PrivX technology and granted this patent," said Dr. Teemu Tunkelo, CEO of  SSH.COM. "The patent further strengthens the differentiation of PrivX against its competitors and provides SSH a sustainable competitive advantage in next-generation Privileged Access Management (PAM) market. The patented invention is especially important for highly regulated and security-conscious industries which are some of our key markets."

SSH.COM has an extensive portfolio of patents or patent applications covering all key products and creates shareholder value by giving SSH.COM both the freedom to operate and significant product differentiation.
