What is SSH?

SSH, also known as Secure Shell or Secure Socket Shell, is a network protocol that gives users, particularly system administrators, a secure way to access a computer over an unsecured network.

SSH provides strong authentication and secure communications over insecure channels, connecting an SSH client application with an SSH server.

Why is it needed?

SSH provides a mechanism for establishing a cryptographically secured connection between two parties, authenticating each side to the other, and passing commands and output back and forth.

In addition to providing strong encryption, SSH is widely used by network administrators to manage systems and applications remotely, deliver software patches, or execute commands and move files.

For organisations that need to transfer data quickly and securely, SSH is an essential part of their logistics pipeline.

Who is it for?

Every organisation could benefit from the high level of encryption provided by SLNet Secure. But it is the heavily regulated industries such as Healthcare, that see the most value from SLNet Secure.

Any organisation using remote SAP consoles, especially those in Retail, Warehousing & Food Processing will benefit from the end to end encryption.
