VanDyke SSH Server and Client Software Provide IS-Series with Secure Remote Monitoring

Albuquerque, N.M. (July 23, 2002) VanDyke Software™, a developer of customer-driven software solutions, today announced that Yokogawa Electric will incorporate the company's VShell™ server and SecureCRT® and SecureFX® clients into an enhanced version of their IS-Series remote monitoring solution. The VanDyke products add the strong security of the Secure Shell (SSH2™) to Yokogawa's proven system for remotely monitoring networked facilities including telecommunications, internet service provider, and managed storage provider installations.

The VShell SSH2 server for Windows NT® and 2000 is part of the IS-Series installed at the monitored locations in one or more critical points of the network. IS-Series network sensors can be installed on either side of a corporate firewall, router, or as part of a DMZ buffer zone. SecureCRT is used to securely tunnel a data stream from the IS-Series sensor to a remote console at another location. SecureFX provides a secure connection to the VShell server for automated transfer of log files and other data generated by the IS-Series sensors.

"Network monitoring and intrusion detection are increasingly important security measures for distributed organizations," said Jeff P. Van Dyke, president of the company. "The addition of our secure server and clients to a proven solution like Yokogawa's IS-Series makes remote monitoring of multiple locations in an organization's wide area network a secure proposition. The SSH connection encrypts all communications and the IS-Series sensors and management console provide robust monitoring and reporting tools to protect critical infrastructure."

Yokogawa's IS-Series is currently available in the Japanese market.
