Wal-Mart Stores has deployed a data security and encryption system to secure data going over its global network.

Wal-Mart went to SSH Communications Security to supply its SSH Tectia solution to enable secure remote access and deliver secure end-to-end data file transfer throughout the retailer's international network.

The SSH Tectia client/server solution secures sensitive company data in transit, delivering strong encryption, support for heterogeneous computing platforms and multiple authentication technologies, along with enhanced SFTP (Secure File Transfer Protocol) capabilities.

Wal-Mart has also selected SSH Tectia Manager, a communications security management platform to manage the enterprise-wide SSH Tectia security solution.

"With the size and complexity of our environment, it was important to find a solution that could be used on all platforms," said Kerry Kilker, Wal-Mart vice president of information security.

"The centralised management of SSH Tectia Manager will enable us to quickly deploy, easily maintain and simplify configuration management in our environment.

That is where we expect to see the most return on investment with this technology," said Kilker.
