SSH.COM’s PrivX® solution
enables IT and development teams to gain lean, secure access management
to critical multi-cloud and hybrid infrastructures

HELSINKI–(BUSINESS WIRE)–SSH.COM
today announced that their access management gateway solution, PrivX,
is now available for free in limited host environments to give IT and
software teams all over the world the opportunity to enjoy the benefits
of lean, scalable and automated access management to hybrid and
multi-cloud (AWS, GCP, Azure, OpenStack) servers and applications.

Cloudification has changed the face of software development and
deployment and IT management; modern techniques in software delivery
require that trusted access management is in lockstep with development
cycles, such as those used in the Continuous Integration/Continuous
Delivery (CI/CD) models, while servers are located across on-prem,
virtual private cloud (VPC) and multi-cloud environments. Extra steps,
bottlenecks and manual processes simply don’t fit into that equation;
it’s all about elasticity and automation.

SSH.COM’s Chief Customer Officer, Sami Ahvenniemi: “Spurred on by the
shift to the cloud, we have identified that many our customers are
looking for the following types of solutions:

  • Modern and lean administrative access management tools
  • Zero Trust solutions that manage access to critical assets, inside the
    perimeter
  • Automated, scalable alternatives to in-house jump hosts and VPNs
  • Centralized 3rd party access controls with monitoring and
    session recording

The focus is now on the entire access lifecycle of employees, including
new hires, people moving around the organization, and people leaving the
company. For example, developers, admins and external contractors are
all needed – often temporarily – for various tasks with different levels
of privilege, all within the critical IT infrastructure. Further,
companies and teams often want to start small and scale IT management
tools as needed, without taking on the burden of massive IT projects or
turning their infrastructure into a hard-to-maintain and complex system.
With PrivX, they get an access management solution that deploys in a
matter of days, practically updates itself, provides monitoring of
access traffic and delivers a simple user experience.”

SSH.COM’s PrivX offers just-in-time role-based access controls to
multi-cloud and on-premises resources in development and production
environments. Access authorization is never permanent but is based on
short-lived certificates that expire within a few minutes of
establishing the RDP/SSH connection. PrviX is an agentless and
credentialess solution that integrates with existing identity access
management (IAM) and directory service (AD/LDAP) tools as well as
cloud-hosted servers and applications, including auto-discovery of cloud
hosts.

SSH.COM is now making PrivX available free of charge online.
Companies can start small and scale with PrivX as their business needs
grow.

Mr. Ahvenniemi continued, “Cloud and hybrid environments require
technological solutions that emphasize speed and agility over legacy
products that are patched up to fit the needs of the cloud. That is why
we built PrivX.”
