SSH Communications Security Corporation comments on the share price increase on January 2, 2020

SSH Communications Security Corporation issued earlier on Thursday, January 2, 2020, a press release stating that the United States Patent and Trademarks Office (USPTO) has granted SSH a patent, which covers secure password­less access to hosts in hybrid networks comprising on-premise and cloud resources.

After the issuance of the press release at 14:30 EET, the share price of the company has risen sharply.

The management of the company estimates the patent validates SSH’s ability to create new, important innovations and develop new technology that improves the competitiveness of the PrivX product. The management estimates the patent has no direct effects on SSH’s business during the current year.
