In addition, both companies will complement each other's offerings and strengthen their presence in new markets, especially in the EMEA and AMER regions.

"SSH has the best defensive security technology, and ISSP has the best people and expertise. We aim for new market openings and mutual benefits for both companies and their customers. Both parties get added value, better product security, shared experience, and a wider sales organization," concludes Teemu.

"As a company with deep Ukrainian roots, ISSP greatly appreciates the level of support and tangible assistance provided to Ukraine and Ukrainians by Finland and our colleagues from SSH in particular. Moreover, our collaboration allows us to build a long-term, mutually beneficial technology partnership between our countries that gives a competitive edge to both sides. As a company that has been at the forefront of Ukraine's cyber defense, we see immense value in sharing our take-outs, approaches, and experience to increase cyber resilience across Finland, the Scandinavian region, and in Europe in general.

Having SSH as a partner allows us to directly address public and private organizations cybersecurity needs and concerns, providing battle-tested and tailored solutions having years of hands-on work in the most demanding market conditions.
