There’s a secret lurking in almost every enterprise: access to the most sensitive data, servers and cloud using SSH is going unchecked. 64% of enterprises surveyed by Aberdeen Group have not established security policies for SSH and don’t have SSH security controls to protect sensitive access.

Not surprising then, Dell SecureWorks found 45% of all vulnerabilities in Amazon Web Services were SSH-related.
