For many in the manufacturing and logistics industries, one of the biggest questions being asked is “Why upgrade over to SSH?”. In today’s blog, we explain what SSH is and why has it become imperative to have in your organisation.

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

SSH follows the Telnet platform – the type of data transferred between an SSH server and client is simple text and small graphics, just like Telnet. It has a very simple configuration and is easy to use and install.

Why should you upgrade to SSH?

The most talked-about feature when people speak of the upgrade to SSH is Encryption.

Using SSH, your organisation can provide secure access for all terminal users, as well as secure access for automated processes such as data transfers.

With this security, SSH also allows users to securely log into another computer over an insecure network.

With SSH, the end-user is able to handle their dedicated server remotely. They can also monitor the server logs, install or remove software and applications, as well as start and stop control of additional services.
