As one of the safest banks in the world, it has inked a bespoke solution to honor its coveted reputation.

One of the largest banks in South-East Asia has selected several products from SSH.COM to secure its mission-critical infrastructure.

OCBC Bank, which is currently the second largest financial services group in Southeast Asia by assets, and rated Aa1 by Moody’s has inked a deal valued in the several hundreds of thousands of US dollars for licences, support services, and multi-year subscriptions to various SSH products. The bank has been recognized for its financial strength and stability, and it is consistently ranked among the world’s top 50 safest banks by Global Finance magazine.

Said Dr Teemu Tunkelo, SSH.COM’s CEO: “Working together with Quantiq International, our long-standing Value-Added Distributor in Singapore, we created a bespoke bundled solution for OCBC to meet and exceed their security needs of today and tomorrow.”

Said Kelvin Ng, a director at Quantiq International: “Working together, we were able to fashion a flexible and future-proof solution for OCBC.” The solution includes Tectia Client/Server, which is claimed to be the gold standard in enterprise-grade SSH client/server technology. Tectia supposedly features the fastest file transfer speeds on the market, advanced X.509 authentication, and expert global 24/7 support.

Another product in the lineup is PrivX, a ‘lean, quick-to-implement, and easy-to-use’ access-management software for privileged access to on-premise and cloud environments.

The product is touted to help clients to flexibly enable and control access to servers, network devices, and other critical infrastructure according to user roles and privileges.

According to SSH.COM, which is the inventor of the widely used secure shell or SSH protocol, PrivX offers unique modern features and functionality that, compared with in-house and traditional tools, not only strengthen IT security but also increase the speed of business and lower privileged access implementation and operating costs.
