HELSINKI, Finland and LOS ALTOS, Calif., Nov. 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- SSH Communications Security Corp. , a world-leading developer of managed security middleware, today announced the relocation of its U.S. President and CEO George Adams to its new corporate office in the Boston suburb of Wellesley, Mass.

Adams had previously led SSH's U.S. subsidiary from its prior SSH U.S. headquarters site in Los Altos, Calif. over the past five years. The Los Altos site will now serve as the sales and technical support center for the company's customers in the Western U.S. and Canada.

The new Boston office will allow SSH Communications Security to better serve its rapidly growing base of large accounts and key strategic partners in the Eastern U.S. and Canada.

The new SSH office is located at 20 William St. G35, Wellesley, Mass. 02481.

"Our enterprise network security business has evolved to make Boston our logical new home base to help major Eastern U.S. and Canadian financial institutions, government agencies and Fortune 1000 enterprises adopt and deploy our award-winning SSH Tectia solution to solve issues such as secure system administration, secure de-perimeterization, application protection, and SOX 404 governance compliance," said Adams. "Silicon Valley was a good place for us to start our U.S. operations, and we will continue to serve our growing base of customers in the Western U.S. and Canada from our Los Altos site."
