Byron Rashed, senior marketing communications manager of SSH Communications Security, claimed that SSH's product is better suited for enterprise-scale business applications than a similar open-source product from OpenSSH.Rashed's points don't seem to impress. Indemnity insurances? Those don't cover you getting owned through holes in rarely-used, barely-audited closed source, do they?
These comments raised the ire of Theo de Raadt, leader of the OpenBSD operating system and a member of the OpenSSH development team.
"OpenSSH is built into all Unix and Linux vendor operating systems, and is also built into almost all larger managed network switches, from Cisco through Foundry. It comes on Linksys and D-Link wireless and security routers too," said de Raadt.
