January 30, 2001 -- F-Secure Corporation, a leading
developer of centrally managed security solutions for the mobile,
distributed enterprise, today announced the general availability of
SSH Server 5.0 for Windows. The product is the first secure remote access
solution for Windows servers. It provides easy multi-platform secure
for Web browsing, email, downloading files and other activities.

Secure access becomes increasingly important with the explosion in
business-critical applications based on Windows platforms. F-Secure SSH
Server 5.0 for Windows provides secure connections and authentication of
users, from any device. Additionally, the product brings all standard SSH
server functionality to Windows NT and 2000 platforms: terminal
tunneling for all TCP based services (e.g. email and web access) and
file transfer protocol (SFTP) for downloading and uploading files.

F-Secure SSH Server has been known for years as the de facto secure Unix
access software, and the same functionality is now available for Windows
and 2000 platforms. F-Secure provides the only solution that secures all
major platforms, including servers for Windows and Unix, and clients for
Windows, Unix and Macintosh. The product is new to the market, and will be
used primarily by companies running services either solely on NT or
2000 platforms, or in a mixed-platform environment. F-Secure provides
continued development, testing and support throughout the life cycle if

Version 5.0 is the first step toward integrating SSH products under a
common centralized management architecture, using F-Secure Policy Manager
architecture, which also provides seamless integration with management
frameworks including Tivoli TME 10, CA-Unicenter, HP OpenView and others.
Policy Manager also integrates with a full range of additional security
applications from F-Secure that provide anti-virus for workstations and
servers, file encryption, network encryption and distributed firewall

"F-Secure is the only vendor providing secure SSH access for all major
platforms" said Petri Nyman, Senior Product Manager at F-Secure. "F-Secure
SSH Server 5.0 fills the gap in Windows security, providing the
secure remote connection capability using Secure Shell protocol already
commonly used in Unix servers. Now administrators can use the same
to access all their servers. This product and its roadmap represent
step in the F-Secure goal of extending its centrally managed security
products and services to the increasingly mobile business world."
